The tour was positively received by most critics.

Background and development

On April 20, 2016, Meghan Trainor announced her third concert tour, The Untouchable Tour, to support her second major-label studio album, Thank You (2016).[1] Tour dates were released on the same day and tickets were released on April 29, 2016.[2][3] Live Nation Entertainment were announced to be the tour's producers, and Lip Smacker, Tampax and Always as its sponsors.[4][5][6] The set list included sixteen songs from Thank You, all four singles from Trainor's debut major-label studio album Title, and a cover of Drake's song "One Dance".[7] At her Greenville show Trainor also added Title to her setlist, after a fan requested it.

Synopsis and reception

Trainor starts the hour and a half long concert with a performance of "Woman Up". Trainor thanks her mother before her performance of "Mom". At one date, wearing an "elegant, black and glittering" gown, she stated "My momma couldn't be here tonight because she's probably doing a million things for me, but I wouldn't be here without her. Best mom ever!"[8] A green screen in the backdrop projects a clip of Trainor dancing with her father during her performance of "Dance Like Yo Daddy", for which he joined Trainor on some dates.[8][9] Pictures of Trainor with her friends are projected on the screen during the "Friends" performance. She is accompanied by a saxophonist and a trumpet player. Trainor plays a ukulele during her performance of "Just a Friend to You". The "Kindly Calm Me Down" performance incorporates four background dancers. Trainor performs "Like I'm Gonna Lose You", and a cover of Drake's "One Dance" on some dates.[9] The set includes three costume changes. Trainor's band is a seven-piece ensemble: bass, drums, keys, trumpet, sax, and rhythm and lead guitarists.[8]

Shawn Costa of MassLive praised the show, writing "Performing for a near-capacity crowd, Trainor put on a high-energy show".[10] The tour was ranked sixth on MTV News' list of "16 Concert Tours You Absolutely Can't Miss This Summer".[11] Billboard's William Goodman gave the show a positive review, describing it as an ode to Trainor's friends and family.[8] Lauren Craddock, also from Billboard, was also favorable, writing that Trainor "packed the house with immense energy and self confidence, engaging with her fans throughout the show".[9] Entertainment Weekly's Kevin O'Donnell gave the show a mixed review, writing that it is "flawlessly executed" but "a little too rooted in Vaudevillian clichés".[12]

Canceled show

On April 20, 2016, the announced tour dates included a show at the PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver.[13][14] It was later replaced with a show at Nampa's Ford Amphitheater.[15]
