Shawn crooned into the night. I’ll tell you where I was the next morning. On the train to work, bleary eyed and struggling, but revelling in the joy that was night before, and Mendes’ dulcet tones.
After the concert in Brussels, I could not wait to see Shawn perform again. We booked the tickets way way back in May 2018, before the next album had even come out. A potentially risky move, but our boy Shawn never let us down.
After a nice meal at Wagamama’s, myself and my two concert compadres stocked up on all the cans and wine we could carry for our journey to the o2.
A photoshoot, and merch purchase later, we were inside, seated in the heaven, awaiting the young Canadian.
He sang everything I wanted, harking all the way back to the euphoric heights of last years, ‘There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back’. All the stars for Mendes, see you next time!
Side note: high-key/low-key sad that Shawn continues to release absolute bangers whilst on tour and I’ve already been, so have to wait til’ next time for the chance of screaming them aloud in an arena. If I Can’t Have You and Señorita are songs on my forever-summer/life soundtrack!! Love them so much.
