MTV's 'Unplugged' Coming Back With Shawn Mendes

August 17, 2017

Remember some of the epic performances that happened on MTV's Unplugged? The series aired on a regular basis on the channel from 1989-1999. And it will occasionally come back in the form of a special. 

Now the series is coming back and it has a Fall debut date and performer.

September 8th the series returns with Shawn Mendes

In an interview with Variety Mendes said, “We’ve been working our asses off just trying to figure out the most beautiful way to play these songs in a smaller, stripped-down way that still feels as impactful,” he says. “I feel like if I can do this right, then it will be a moment for me — where people can really understand and see me as a musician and a singer, and where I’m coming from.”

There's no word on who else MTV has lined up to perform on Unplugged

In honor of Throwback Thursday here are just a few of the greatest Unplugged performances from back in the day. 

I can't believe how different Mariah looks back then. 

The Nirvana Unplugged was so popular they turned it into a CD. 

We haven't heard a peep from Bryan Adams in a long time.
