Kelly Clarkson proves herself worthy of the title of America’s original Idol with every breath she takes. Thus, it should hardly surprise you to learn that The Meaning Of Life Tour is shaping up to be an absolute must-see. Last night, the diva launched the show with a stop in Oakland, California. Taking the stage at Oracle Arena, she worked her way through a bevy of hits. Her latest album, the Grammy-nominated Meaning Of Life, was heavily featured on the setlist. Kelly showed plenty of love to the LP’s singles including “Love So Soft” and “Heat” and tossed in a couple fan favorites like “Whole Lotta Woman” and “Move You.”

Breakaway, her 2004 opus, also had its moment in the sun. That’s not all. Kelly belted out a couple of covers alongside anthems from her gem-filled discography. The golden-voiced icon made sure to highlight her take on “Never Enough” off last year’s The Greatest Showman Reimagined album. It looks like she’ll also select a fan-requested cover each night. Last night’s choice was Miranda Lambert’s “Tin Man.” However, in the past she’s put her own spin on bops from Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and a slew of other legends. It is nice to see the trend continuing with her latest show.

The Meaning Of Life Tour will have her traveling across North America. With sets scheduled in Cleveland, Chicago, Dallas, Boston and Nashville, it is one of our most-anticipated shows of 2019. And it looks like it is more than living up to the hype. Check out the setlist from opening night below and get ticket info here!
