(AUS) Live Nation has announced that American pop star Meghan Trainer – one of the hottest talents to emerge during 2014 – will head to Australia this April for her very first shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
The Grammy-nominated pop phenomenon – who hit #1 with the infectious smash single ‘All About That Bass’ – will play two all-ages shows only, appearing at the Big Top at Luna Park, Sydney on April 27 and The Forum, Melbourne on April 30.
Currently undertaking an extensive North American tour, the Australian tour announcement comes on the back of today’s release of her debut album, ‘Title’ (through Sony Music Australia), also featuring the platinum, ARIA #3 hit ‘Lips Are Movin’.
Meghan’s smash debut ‘All About That Bass’ spent four weeks at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, three weeks topping the national airplay chart and has reached sales of five-times-platinum.
The catchy track also reigned at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for eight straight weeks, hit #1 on the iTunes singles chart in more than 70 countries and #1 on the global Spotify and Shazam Charts. The positive body image anthem has racked up an impressive six million downloads, 350 million views on the pastel-pop video and more than 150 million streams worldwide.
Meghan’s massive year has culminated in a number of award nominations, including a 2014 American Music Award nominee for New Artist of the Year, and two 2015 Grammys (Record of the Year & Song of the Year for ‘All About That Bass’).
