What better day to announce your new tour than on your birthday?  The newly minted 18-year-old will launch his summer adventure in his San Antonio hometown in late July.  With The Vamps appearing through Aug. 26, special guests on the tour include Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes on all dates while Alex Angelo joins the fun Aug. 26.

Along with the “MTV Presents Austin Mahone” tour, this year brings something special to the artist’s fans, dubbed “Mahomies.”  Beginning May 3 fans can enter a contest in which the winner and three friends will receive private dance lessons from Mahone’s crew, a “Mahomie” makeover and the opportunity to perform on stage with the star and his dancers for a rendition of his hit, “Mmm Yeah.”  To enter, you’ll need to submit a video showing you and your three buds going through your dance steps.
