MTrain Tour

MTrain
It appears on the set list for all of his concert tours, as well as Trainor's MTrain Tour (2015), on which Puth served as an opening act.
Trainor performs acoustic version of “Title” and a mashup of her song "3am" and Mraz's song "I'm Yours” with a ukulele and a guitar. These songs are performed on Trainor's ukulele, which gives them a "new, island vibe" according to The Sun Chronicle's Jenna Noel. "Walkashame" is then performed. At each concert, Trainor calls a person from the audience on-stage to dance with her in front of the crowd. The person is crowned "king" or "queen" using light-up headbands. "Close Your Eyes" and "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" precede a performance of "Marvin Gaye" for which Charlie Puth joins Trainor. This is followed by a short dance break to Lewis' song "Bills". Trainor performs her song "Better When I'm Dancin'". The set is finished with "Good to Be Alive" and "All About That Bass" as the encore.
