CONCERT REVIEW: Meghan Trainor at the Phoenix Concert Theatre

Review and photos by Amanda Carson. 

 

If you’re all about that bass then you were at Meghan Trainor’s concert in Toronto. This was an all-ages show. Fans old and young were in the crowd singing and dancing along to Meghan Trainor at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.

 

Sheppard opened for the “All About That Bass” singer. They made the crowd smile with their six-piece band from Brisbane, Australia. They played a mixture of songs that got the crowd moving and not just their lips; the parents were dancing alongside their kids.

Lead singers Amy and George Sheppard have great harmonies together, which helps create the unique indie-pop sound of the band. Not to mention that three of the members in the band are siblings (Amy, George and Emma). Michael Butler, Janson Bovino and Dean Gordon make up the rest of Sheppard. They had everyone in the house singing along with there well known single “Geronimo.”

Next up was the woman of the night, Miss Meghan Trainor, opening with “Dear Future Husband.” Believe it or not, she’s only 21 and already has two top five hits on the Billboard Hot 100. As she walked on stage, the whole room turned into a roar of screams and cheers. Fans sang and danced along to every word, including her cover of “Up Town Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.

Joining her on stage was her band, two backup singers and her two dancers. A special part of the night was when she brought a fan onstage to dance with her for a song.

 

Unfortunately, the show had to come to an end. Meghan closed the show with “Lips Are Movin’,” her newest single. As Meghan left the stage, fans chanted and cheered for an encore (I think even some of parents wanted more). She came back out on stage and sang “What If I” and of course, what everyone was waiting for, “All About That Bass,” which ended in confetti guns that that left fans walking out of the venue, pulling it out of their hair and their clothes all the way home.
