“Wonder: The Experience” will also mark the final stop on Mendes’ virtual “Wonder Residency Tour,” which included performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. A limited-edition poster was designed for each show, with all proceeds benefitting the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), an organization that aims to preserve independent venues across the country while they are shuttered due to COVID-19.

The highly-anticipated Wonder marks the Canadian singer-songwriter’s fourth studio album and follows three consecutive No.1 album debuts (in both the US and Canada), including the artist’s Grammy-nominated 2018 LP, Shawn Mendes. Since announcing Wonder, Mendes has released the title track (which quickly became a Top 20 hit in the US) as well as “Monster,” a collaboration with Justin Bieber.
Last week, Mendes’ documentary, In Wonder, premiered on Netflix. The film, which serves as a prelude to Wonder, offers an intimate look at the artist’s life, including his life on tour, and his struggles with depression and anxiety. The Toronto Star praised that Mendes’ “trajectory has been nothing short of remarkable… the autobiopic is quite the deep dive .”
Wonder is available on December 4 and can be pre-ordered here.
