Ottawa Concert

Things I learned at the Justin Timberlake concert

Last night, Justin Timberlake put on a concert in Ottawa, Ontario. He mentioned that the last time he was in Ottawa was in the year 2000 and that’s “fucking unacceptable” in his words. I agree. I went to the show last night and it was unbelievable! I’m a huge Justin Timberlake fan since the *Nynsc days *sigh*. The 33 year old defiantly knows how to put on a show. 

Here are some things that I learned while attending the Justin Timberlake concert:

1. Any seat at the Canadian Tire Centre is a good seat. We were sitting way, way, way up in the 300’s and I could see JT very well from where I was sitting! Ha! Take that people who paid more to sit in the 200’s!

2. Toot toot toot toot! And the horns say! I wish I took band in high school. The Tennessee Kids are incredible! I love their sound. They can easily make any “band kid” look cool. 

3. I wish I would have stuck with my hip hop dancing and vocal lessons as a kid. JT is so talented. He is defiantly a triple threat. I’m jealous. 

4. He sounds just like the CD. Here is my favourite song.

5. He has style and I want to copy it. 

Did you go last night? What did you think?


How to get a singer’s attention at a concert?

Yup. I Google’ed this today. In Ottawa, we have a lot of great concerts coming up over the next couple of weeks. Katy Perry (tonight)*, Justin Timberlake*, Bruno Mars*. We’re pretty lucky. 

So the question I asked today is how do you get a singer’s attention at a concert? Here is some advice I found on Yahoo! Answers

  1. Make a huge poster with something random on it. They actually might stop to read it.
  2. Pull up your shirt
  3. Look like a Penthouse model
  4. Buy a lot of rotten tomatoes
  5. Totally freak them out and say you want to marry them
  6. Get past the guards, get in your birthday suit, streak across the stage yell “I LOOOOOVEEEE YOUUUUU!” and then run like hell
  7. Throw something at them, like a full cup of beer
  8. Get on someone’s shoulders and start doing the YMCA
  9. Wear something different and spunky, but not weird or hippyish
  10. Bring a sticky note, write your phone number and that you want to have some fun after the show, then put it on the stage

Ugh… thanks Yahoo! Answers… I’ll keep some of these ideas in mind.
