12 Days of Christmas giveaway Day 6: Free tickets to Shawn Mendes at Infinite Energy Center

[Congrats to randomly selected winner Anna K.!]


I still remember being in New York a couple of years ago and seeing a line wrapped around a building in Times Square. I asked one of the mostly young people queued up who they were waiting to see and... it was a then-fledgling Shawn Mendes.

The "Stitches" and "Treat You Better" singer has come a long way from promotional appearances. In the spring, he will embark on his first arena world tour , which hits the U.S. in the summer, including a 7:30 p.m. July 29 stop at Infinite Energy Center in Duluth.

Thanks to my generous venue contacts, I have a pair of tickets to give away for that concert. If you'd like to buy tickets, they're $47.50-$67.50 and available now at

To enter to win the free pair:

Email me at by 6 p.m. Dec. 20 (you will receive my “out of office” message, but be assured that I have received your entry). Please do not enter if you cannot attend and please, only one entry per email address.

You must put “Day 6” in the subject line or I will not see your email. If you tell me, “I wanna marry Shawn!” or anything other than “Day 6,” I will not see your email and you will have absolutely no chance of winning.

I will randomly select — and contact — a winner on Dec. 20. I will also post the winning name here once I’ve received confirmation.

While this isn’t a requirement, I would really appreciate a follow on  Twitter  or  Facebook .

Good luck!
