Thanks to AstroKik I was able to attend MuchMusic’s The Big Jingle for free and with great seats! (Section 118 holla).
My sister’s camera didn’t do its duty well this time (I’m blaming it on the lighting and fog effects), so for a rare night I saw a concert through my own eyes instead of a camera screen. I was able to fully enjoy the concert, dance around (during breaks they hosted dance parties), scream as loud as I can and of course swoon over the good looking performers.
It was a great concert and awesome that Canada had a Jingle themed concert to call their own this year.
Below are some of the decent pictures I did capture for your viewing pleasure:
Shawn Desman had the crowd singing “Dum Da Dum”:
Sky Blu party rocked solo but confirmed that LMFAO is reunited and back together (…Yeah, I didn’t know they were separated to begin with).
Rising Texan popstar Austin Mahone made his first trip to Canada a big one.
While Cody Simpson took the stage for the second night in a row after making a surprise guest appearance at Bieber’s show the night before.
Carly Rae Jepsen was greeted by tons of “Call Me Maybe” signs.
Simple Plan brought the nostalgia playing old hits along with their new songs. It also rained giant beach balls during “Summer Paradise” (which was awesome).
And the British band everyone was waiting for closed the show. The Wanted!
This is the third time I’ve seen them live, and if there’s one thing you learn about the five piece boyband, is that they are extremely interactive with their fans. Always pointing and making eye contact with fans during their performance. But no one would have expected this:Yup, that’s a sea of fan girls swarming the boys who are barely identifiable in the mob. It started off with one girl being pulled onto the catwalk to dance with the band, only to have more pulled onstage, only to have everyone on the floor do all that they can to climb on themselves. The Wanted actually embraced this and enjoyed being swarmed, unlike other performers who, let’s admit, would fear for their safety and get security in there asap.
Overall it was a great experience, can’t wait for next year! Hopefully there IS a next year.
