Saturday morning we got up and rented a wheelchair for the day because we weren’t quite sure what to expect at the iHeart Radio village show. We went to the bus stop but grew too impatient to wait and ended up walking (rolling) the entire strip to “The Lot”. We had missed a DJ and 21 Pilots but made it in time for DJ Jayceeoh’s first set.
We walked around and got some free stuff at the booths and went to the ADA platform to check out Cher Lloyd’s set. She was joined for It’s All Good w/ Ne-Yo. Then we saw The Band Perry, Pete Tong, Miley Cyrus (girls gone crazy), AWOL Nation, Avril Lavigne, Krewella, another DJ and then it was finally time for The Wanted – the reason I was there. They were introduced by surprise guest Danity Kane who sang some of Damaged acapella before The Wanted took the stage. The guys looked like they were having a TON of fun on stage!
After their set I tried to get more free stuff and got Britney’s new fragrance and a Walgreens gift card as well as some Macys TShirts. They were adding transfers to the shirts but we got cut off from the line so we went to the back of the tent where they were just giving the shirts with no prints on them off. (They said “iHeart” and you could pick “Vegas” and other words to add to your shirt)
Then it was time to head back to the hotel, assess my sunburn and get ready to go see Hanson!
Some of the songs I remember from the sets:
We Can’t Stop
Party in the USA
What Are They Doing To My Songs
Chasing the Sun
All Time Low
Walks Like Rihanna
I Found You
We Own the Night
Glad You Came
