We got to the venue REALLY early because we went straight from the softball game. So we picked up our stuff at will call and just hung around for a while waiting for doors. Which at first we thought would be at 6 or 6:30, but it ended up being more like 6:45, we are assuming due to soundcheck.
We got in line for the Jonas M&G; which was set to star tat 7:15, but it didn’t. We could hear the show starting, but were still in line for the M&G;! A lot of people were getting frustrated with it taking so long and a LOT of people ended up cutting us. We just kind of let them without a fight because we knew we would be in there eventually – but seriously people. A simple “do you mind if you miss the openers?” would have gotten a “no” from us and a “well we do can we hop in front of you?” most likely would have gotten a “yes” but everyone just hopped in front when we were almost at the door to go in.
By the time we got out of the M&G; we had already missed all of the first Camp Rock stuff and most of Demi’s set. Not a huge deal because I wasn’t really looking forward to that stuff anyway – and hello instead we met the Jonas Brothers… didn’t really think that was ever going to end up happening for me lol
Our seats were the last row of the center section before the VIP boxes – they were really nice. Gotta love me and my contest wins 🙂 We ended up catching Demi’s last 2 songs – Got Dynamite and Here We Go Again and then the Demi/Camp Rock set. I sat through most of it though because I was BEAT and wanted to save my energy for Jonas!
Finally it was time for Jonas and no longer a huge Camp Rock 2 commercial. They started with Feelin Alive. I wasn’t all that familiar with the Jonas LA or Camp Rock 2 soundtrack so there were a few songs in the mix that I was unfamiliar with.
They also had dancers for some of their songs which was pretty interesting… For “Introducing Me” Nick said that Joe had been daring him to sing it fast. Joe came out and dared him to sing it in 2 minutes and 12 seconds and then I think ended up changing it to 2 minutes 30 seconds. (I thought he said 13, so I’m not exactly sure what was going on) A timer came up on the screen which said 2:50! Nick kept looking back at it when he took a breath and finished the song when 30 seconds were left, meaning he did it in 2 minutes and 20 seconds. Kevin and Joe seemed to think the clock started at 2:30 though, so they were impressed Nick did it in 2 minutes and Joe said he’d have to make his dare harder the next night. Poor Nick… the next challenge will be based on false information.
After that Demi came out and they did a couple camp rock duets so I took that as an opportunity to sit again! They had a cover in their set which was Paul McCartney’s “Drive My Car”, which was for the parents. (Last tour they did Sweet Caroline for the parents)
They ended the set with Burnin Up and had flames shooting up which made us hot back in row U, so I can only imagine how hot it was for Christine and Amber – who were front row!
The show was incredibly scaled down from last years HUGE stage and tour, but I liked it better that way. And although at first I wasn’t too sure I would be into having dancers and stuff on the tour – it kind of gave everything a bit of a broadway show feel, which was cool.
Setlist is copied from a Google search and might not be 100% correct. I know they did a medley of older stuff before Please Be Mine and I’m not sure if the stuff I missed is accurate because I was not there for it. Photos coming later…
