MTV’s revival of “Unplugged” begins on September 8th with SHAWN MENDES. Mendes got excited to be on the show after seeing PEARL JAM’s appearance from 1992 . . . even though he wasn’t alive when it originally aired. He’s only 19.
Shawn says, quote, “It wasn’t so much about the commercial, showman side of it; It was really about the music.” There’s no word who else MTV has lined up for the season.
