Hailed by Billboard as “Music’s First Vine Star” and TIME Magazine as one of the “Most Influential Teens Of 2014,” singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes has emerged from teen viral sensation to major best-selling status almost overnight. Soon after artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered & introduced Mendes to now-label Island Records in early 2014, Shawn’s debut single “Life Of The Party” broke records, topping the iTunes charts and selling over 150,000 copies in its first week due to his legions of fans. The success of the song made Shawn the youngest ever artist to break into the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 25 with a debut single. Then, just a month later, Mendes released his self-titled debut EP, which also hit the #1 spot on iTunes once again, and entered at #5 on the Billboard Album charts, showing the staying power of the young artist. Now fresh off of his sold out first headline tour dates and soon to be embarking on Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour as well as releasing his debut album in 2015, Shawn has quickly become one of music’s most promising young stars.
Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Also in 2013, Mohegan Sun won “Casino of The Year” in 2 categories at the Academy of Country Music Awards. For more information on concerts and other great events visit Mohegan Sun.
