"For being such a young age, her musical talent is exceptional. The range of Grace’s voice and her ukulele skills were showcased very well in the 45 minute set. ... You could clearly tell Grace was enjoying herself, showing confidence that is admirable giving her age, and playing in front of such a large crowd. ...Her voice is pure, and just draws you right in. I fully expect Grace Vanderwaal to only get more and more successful as she continues to grow and develop her skills as a musician." (Liveinlimbo.com June 20, 2018)
It finally happened, I got to see Grace live on June 13th and 14th. It was surreal. So great to see even at these large venues she is always being herself. Previous shows had sound issues but these two shows sounded very good. Only had a minor issue with the guitar at one point on the 14th. Her voice comes through so rich and strong on the PA system, it’s amazing. Others have said before, don’t miss out if she is coming to your city. Tickets are still available. Pro tip: use high fidelity earplugs.
Both days while standing in the line outside, I noticed an unexpectedly high number of young children with their families. A lot of kids between 8 to 14 or so, all girls. Pretty sure they were all or mostly Grace fans. I don’t see girls that age listening to ID.
The crowd response was really good. I’ve realized it doesn’t come through on videos. She had a lot of fans scattered around the whole place. Most were probably kids and their families. First day I was in the pit. People were cheering and reacting to all her dance moves. I heard people screaming “you’re so cute!”, “she’s so talented”, “love you!” etc. She does a very cute twisting dance move during Best Friend cover. People just melted over it. She loved the reactions, smiled every time.
On the 14th I was little farther away from the pit. I got to hear cheers coming from all around, from really far behind too. Even heard those massive roars a few times that you hear at arenas. A family with a 7 or so year old girl was near me and she was wearing Grace’s “Clearly” tour shirt.
After ID’s first song I got up and went walking towards the lawn area and the merchandise stands. Noticed many families with young kids coming out too. Some were leaving. Definite Grace fans. We’ve seen several video posts from families on the lawn section. I think most of her little fans ended up on the lawn due to high ticket prices or hearing about the tour a bit too late to get better seats.
Now I have a better idea of Grace’s reach in Canada. She absolutely has lot more fans here than I imagined. The reaction from the kids at the Uke School here in Toronto proves it too. If you haven’t seen the videos here are the links:

About This List
The list of performances includes every event where Grace has performed a song or part of a song for an audience (live or online) except very short snippets of songs. The list is based on information from many different sources and on valuable feedback from members of the VanderVault discussion forums. We would particularly like to thank Mike Kertok who’s impressive work on his Grace Vanderwaal Timeline has yielded information on performances we had not come across anywhere else.
The list is updated regularly. If you have any additions or corrections to the list, please send a mail with as many details as possible (and for corrections, with a reference to the performance-ID in the list) to email@example.com. Please be patient with the implementation of your suggestions, thanks.
A few notes on dates: The performance date will always be the day the performance was made public (for live performances = the actual performance date). If we know that a performance was recorded at an earlier date (fx for a tv- or radio-show), that date will be noted in the comments. If we know the month of a performance but not the day of the month, the performance is set to the first of that month. If we know the quarter/season (e.g., spring), the date is set to the first of that quarter. And if we only know the year, the date is set to the first of January. Whenever a performance is dated this way, there will be note about it in the comments.
