The Minnesota State Fair grandstand lineup is invariably heavy on classic names but the fair also likes to book a hot hit-maker or two. Meghan Trainor, whose “All About That Bass” was one of the biggest songs of 2014, will perform at the grandstand on Sept. 1.
Her MTrain Tour for the summer has been announced, to promote her debut album “Title.” The tour, which begins July 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., also includes performances at state fairs in California, Delaware, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky and New York.
The 21-year-old newcomer also had success with her second single, “Lips Are Movin,’” which peaked at No. 4. Her new single is “Dear Future Husband.”
Epic Records, for which Trainor records, announced that tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 20 via livenation.com. The Minnesota State Fair will make a ticket announcement on Thursday.
