Shawn Mendes “Today” Show Concert Video – Watch Performance!
Shawn Mendes performed an outdoor concert for Friday’s “Today” as part of the morning show’s Citi Concert Series. But while it didn’t air on the East Coast, you can watch the videos below.
As Gossip Cop reported, NBC broadcast a live press conference from Dallas on the fatal police shootings instead of showing Mendes’ planned performance. That didn’t sit well with the singer’s fans, who ranted about Mendes’ concert being pushed on Twitter. Mendes still performed, however, and the show eventually tweeted that the footage would air on the West Coast as scheduled, and otherwise be available online.
Mendes had teased his performance on Twitter on Thursday, writing, “Come down to @TodayShow tomorrow guys I’m performing.” He also revealed that the first 1,000 fans to check in would get a pre-sale code for first access to tickets to his Madison Square Garden concert in September.
Tickets to the “Today” concert shows are free, but viewing is on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans are expected to arrive quite early in order to get a spot close to the stage in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza. As Gossip Cop reported, Diddy kicked off the summer lineup of the Citi Concert Series in May, followed by performances from Dierks Bentley, Fifth Harmony, Luke Bryan, Nick Jonas, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Steven Tyler and Rachel Platten.
Additional music stars who will be taking the stage in the coming weeks include Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and more. Check out the videos below of Mendes singing “Ruin,” “Stitches,” and “Treat You Better.”
