I was so extremely lucky to be able to go to two concerts in a week. The Wanted on Monday and Maroon 5 on Thursday. I loved both of them. I am so totally obsessed with TW right now.
The concert was great. The best thing for me is that all the boys were just so interactive with the crowd, and they really knew how to get everyone pumped. They sang among their hits (Glad you came, Chasing the Sun) Heart Vacancy,Warzone, Gold Forever and a few more. Kyle Patrick who is from the Click 5 opened for them. He sang, among other songs, JENNY! and his new single Go for Gold. I loved Jenny and the crowd did too as we did most of the singing.
My friend had spare tickets for Maroon 5 VIP, so she offered me one. How on earth could I refuse? The crowd has humongous (7000 people) and the show was spectacular. It was a proper concert with light shows and a grand entrance. The Cab (a band from Las Vegas) opened for them. I didn't really know them but I did like one of their songs called Bounce. Next, Adam Levine came on stage and the screams were deafening. He had some crazy cool dance moves and got the crowd moving with his catchy tunes. He started off with Payphone and ended with a remix version on Moves like Jagger. It was really great he even played the drums and guitar. I loved that he tried to draw attention to his band mates as much as possible, so nice of him. But obviously, everyone was just obsessed with Adam.
If you asked me which I liked more, I would say The Wanted. I love both bands (maybe TW a little more) but The Wanted was just incredible. It wasn't the best concert in terms of, well, class? I guess that's the word. But I feel they connected with the crowd a lot more and were really into it. They even had signing which I didn't go but apparently it was jam packed. They get extra brownie points for they're good looks and charm too. Joke. ;)
Sorry about the dodgy pictures by the way. I took them all on my brother's iPod. I didn't feel like lugging around my camera.
Oh and if you're wondering what I wore. For The Wanted: A blue knitted top with a camisole underneath, some high-waisted shorts and my mint converse. Maroon 5: Sheer patterned blouse, tucked in the same high-waisted shorts and my studded brown Bonita flats. All my clothing items are from Cotton On except the flats and converse which are branded. Sorry for no pictures as they are all in the wash. Click here to see the post in which I featured the converse and blouse.
I am currently suffering from post-concert depression as my friends and I call it. I hope that The Wanted comes back soon (next year, maybe).
