Meghan Trainor had to scale back ambitious tour plans

'All About That Bass' sensation Meghan Trainor has revealed that she wanted to play as many instruments as possible on her tour, but 'technical' problems forced her to scale back her plans. 

Speaking to EW about what she initially wanted to do, Trainor admitted that playing the piano, the drums and the ukelele during one stage show proved too difficult so she and her crew had to revise the set:

"There was one week to realistically get the band ready with me. I told them, 'I'm going to play the piano on 'Kindly Calm Me Down,' and then I'm going to play the drums.' I had this whole visual planned. But I really belt on that song and can't bang on the drums while I'm doing that, so the dancers are going to play the drums."

"And then I was like, 'Let me play the piano then.' And they're like, 'Well, the piano player can't escape because he has eight [keyboards] surrounding him in a circle, so if you want to play, you're going to have to crawl under there.' There were just too many technical things, but at least I have my ukulele. On another tour when we have more time to prepare, I'm going to whip out my guitar and my piano."
