"The tour has been going amazing, it's been crazy. I knew the shows were a lot bigger, but until you actually step in front of that many people you don't really feel how big it is and the shows are actually huge."
Shawn Mendes has revealed the first chapter of his "World Tour Diary" today and it's just as awe-striking as we could imagine. The visuals promote his upcoming album, Illuminate (due September 23rd). An exclusive preview of the album will take place at his headlining Madison Square Garden show on Saturday, September 10th.
Until then, take a look at what has been going on below. (Directed by Josiah Van Dien)
