Shawn Mendes is set to make a highly anticipated return to the stage after a two-year break to focus on his mental health. The Canadian singer-songwriter took to Instagram to announce that he will be headlining Rock In Rio on September 22, marking his first live performance since taking time off from touring.

Mendes expressed his excitement for the upcoming show, stating that he is looking forward to reconnecting with his fans in person after a long absence from live performances. He also hinted at the possibility of performing new music from his upcoming album during the event.

Rock In Rio, known as one of the largest music festivals in the world, will feature a star-studded lineup including artists like Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Travis Scott, and One Republic. Mendes previously graced the festival stage in 2017, making his return this year even more special for fans eagerly awaiting his comeback.

This announcement comes after Mendes decided to cancel the remaining shows of his Wonder World Tour in 2022 due to the toll that post-pandemic touring took on his mental well-being. In a statement, Mendes openly discussed the challenges he faced and stressed the importance of prioritizing his mental health and overall well-being.

Fans of the “Stitches” singer can anticipate his triumphant return to live performances at Rock In Rio, where he is sure to deliver an unforgettable show for his dedicated audience.
