Shawn Mendes is gearing up for his long-awaited return to live performances, headlining the 40th anniversary edition of the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil on September 22.

Expressing his excitement on Instagram, Shawn shared, “It’s been a really long time since I last played live… I’ve missed being on stage and seeing you all in person so much! I’ve also been working on a new album and I can’t wait to play these new songs live for you. See you there.”

Rock in Rio is set to take place from September 13-15 and September 19-22, with an expected attendance of 700,000 fans in Rio de Janeiro.
