“It’s an honour to be able to tour across this amazing country and perform live for all my fans,” Hook said in a release. “I can’t wait to connect with everyone on a bigger and more exciting scale than ever before.”
His 2015 hit single “Sound of Your Heart”, which reached double platinum status in Canada, hit the Top 20 in America, and made it to #1 on Billboard Dance Club chart. Shawn received the Allan Slaight Award at Canada’s Walk of Fame event in 2017 and Billboard named him as one of “tomorrow’s hits,” while Nylon included Shawn in their “ones to watch” lists.
The song led to performances on Jimmy Kimmel, The Today Show and Kelly and Michael, and his single, “Reminding Me,” featuring Vanessa Hudgens, peaked at #3 on Hot AC in Canada. Hook performed the song on theSo You Think You Can Dance finale.
Neon Dreams, meanwhile, first hit radio stations in 2016 with the single “Marching Bands,” featuring Kardinal Offishall.
The tour starts in Montreal on Oct. 16 and works west. A show at Trail’s The Bailey venue, on Nov. 9, is the only other B.C. date on the tour.
