The Concert

So, the concert was so fun! Michael Buble is certainly an entertainer and doesn't disappoint! A group called Naturally 7 opened and they were very good. They are 7 black guys from NY and they sing a capella and do all of the percussion themselves. The guy that did the bass noises was amazing. His voice was sooo low!

The opening of the concert was quite dramatic and everyone loved it. The curtain was up and you could see through and see Michael directing the band and the music was super dramatic so it got everyone soo excited. I wasn't familiar with that particular song, but it was cool. The place was packed.

He is pretty funny. He does like to swear here and there which kind of caught me a bit off guard since his songs are so clean...anyway, he was really personal and talked a bit about his life, how he's engaged and how having bad stuff in your life when you have such a public life "sucks, hardcore." He said he was inspired by the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Michael Jackson. He sang Billy Jean as if he were Michael...pretty funny.

He sang probably his 5 most popular songs, walked through the crowd and sang at the back of the E Center on a small stage and was very gracious and thanked the crowd several times for spending our "hard earned money" to come and see him perform. He sang Freedom for his encore (that was one of 3 songs he sang), which is Justin's favorite. It was a really fun night!
