Here's How You Can Meet Shawn Mendes & Sit VIP at His Show, Thanks to the Grammy Museum
The experience is part of this year's Grammy Charity Online Auctions, which will also feature items from Miley Cyrus, Post Malone and more.
Shawn Mendes could be a big winner at the Grammys on Sunday (Feb. 10), but before he finds out his fate, the "In My Blood" singer is ready to make one of his fans a big winner. Mendes is teaming up with Grammy Museum, MusiCares and eBay to give one lucky Mendes Army member a VIP experience on his upcoming tour -- including a chance to meet Shawn himself.
Fans can now bid on the once-in-a-lifetime experience that will raise funds for the Grammy Museum, and Mendes is thrilled to be part of such an important cause.
“As a Grammy nominee this year, I wanted to celebrate this exciting moment by making an impact with the Grammy Museum and eBay for Charity," Mendes tells Billboard in a statement. "It's amazing to know that 100 percent of the proceeds raised from my experience will benefit the Grammy Museum. As a musician, I feel really connected to and passionate about causes like the Grammy Museum that celebrate the art of music.”
Along with the Shawn Mendes VIP meet-and-greet experience -- which will also include a signed guitar from Shawn -- this year's Grammy auction features nearly 100 items from several other nominees and past winners. Cardi B and The Weeknd signed their Rolling Stone covers; Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran and more autographed sheet music of their hits; and Post Malone and Dierks Bentley signed guitars. A few stars also signed their Billboard covers, including Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves and, perhaps the most valuable of them all, the late Tom Petty.
There will also be two other VIP experiences up for grabs in the auction: A meet-and-greet with Musgraves (a two-time winner and four-time nominee this year), and platinum tickets to the 62nd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Jan. 26, 2020.
The auction will be split into two parts, with Wave 1 launching tonight (Feb. 5) at 7 p.m. ET and running through Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. ET. Wave 2 will launch on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. ET and will run through Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. ET. Fans can bid on all of the items at ebay.com/grammy.
This is the 17th year that eBay for Charity has partnered with Grammy nominees and winners to raise money for the Grammy Museum and MusiCares. For more information on the Grammy Museum, visit www.grammymuseum.org, and for info on MusiCares, visit www.musicares.org.
