Meghan Trainor brings that bass to Dallas during 2015 concert tour
Another blonde pop princess is coming to Dallas next year, but this one is no skinny bitch. Meghan Trainor, the 20-year-old sensation behind the epic chart-topper "All About That Bass," will play at the Granada Theater on February 27, 2015.
The 17-date tour kicks off February 11 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and wraps in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 20. She makes one more Texas stop, in Houston, on February 25.
The young singer-songwriter has accomplished a great deal since the release of her hit single back in June. "All About That Bass" has achieved six-time platinum status, which is equivalent to 6 million singles sold. The pop anthem has clinched the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks and is still holding strong at the No. 1 spot.
Trainor holds the record for the longest attainment of the No. 1 Hot 100 spot for a female artist this year, and the music video for her hit single has been viewed more than 223 million times. Not only that, but her incredible success has led her to tie Michael Jackson's record for the longest leading single in the history of Epic Records. The King of Pop enjoyed a seven-week run on top of the charts with "Billie Jean," from the 1982 album Thriller, which is often touted as the best-selling album of all time.
The Nantucket-born singer's latest release, "Lips Are Movin'," has already achieved a spot on Billboard's Hot 100 (currently at No. 93 in its first week on the chart). The song will appear on her hotly anticipated full-length album, Title, which will hit shelves January 13. But if you can't wait until January, five songs from the upcoming 15-track album have already been released on iTunes.
Trainor will be performing at the Granada with Australian pop band, Sheppard, as her special guest. Tickets for the concert go on sale Saturday, November 8.
