It’s been nothing but up lately for Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney), but now they’re going down – under, that is. Announced yesterday, the GRAMMY-winning duo will join superstar Shawn Mendes on his self-titled tour in Australia (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney). Additional tickets for the October and November dates will go on sale (HERE) Monday, April 1 at noon local time.
Before heading overseas, the duo will spend the spring on the remaining dates of their sold-out headlining tour. Star Tribune praised Mooney’s vocals in Minneapolis as “a luxe tenor, the prettiest male voice in Nashville since Vince Gill” with their harmonies described as “an alluring blend.” The newspaper aptly declared of the recent show, “The young female fans screamed as if Ed Sheeran were onstage. They sang along as if Shawn Mendes were onstage. They shot cellphone videos as if… Taylor Swift were onstage.” In June they’ll bring the critically acclaimed show to Florida Georgia Line’s “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour” in addition to a performance at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest in June.
