Pop phenom Shawn Mendes has 15 festival plays lined up for 2018, but apparently it’s not too early for the star to plan a two-continent run in 2019.

The European leg starts March 7 at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome and continues for more than a month, wrapping with two nights at The O2 in London April 16-17.

Mendes’ North American leg begins June 12 in Portland, Ore., and continues for two months, wrapping Aug. 24 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

There are a lot of presales for this tour, but a few key details will help most fans seeking early access to tickets.

There is a special app – the ShawnAccess App – which will give Mendes’ fans access to presale tickets and VIP packages. Shawn is also using Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan service for this tour, so North American fans can register ahead of time to prove they are a real person and get early access to tickets.

The first North American presale is May 12 at 10 a.m. local time, for those who have completed those two steps, and for American Express cardholders. There will be another presale March 13 for those who buy merch on the artist’s website. The general public onsale is on May 19.

The first European presales are through the app – and an O2 presale for U.K. fans – on May 16.  An American Express presale begins May 16, a general fan presale starts May 17 and the general onsale is May 18.

Mendes announces these dates just a few weeks before the May 25 release of his eponymous third album. Mendes’ hits include “Mercy,” “Treat You Better,” “Stitches,” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” which have all brought him some serious streaming numbers and radio spins.

The 19-year-old blew up on online in 2013, and now has 30.7 million followers on Instagram. He has been described by some as a model for how to transition a large online following into a successful music career.

The artist’s next performance is at “The Biggest Weekend” May 27 in Sketty, Wales, with Rita Ora, Taylor Swift, and James Bay.
