Time seems to pass in a blur. It’s hard to believe that almost 2 weeks ago I was standing in line with 2 of my girls and a friend of my daughter, waiting to meet Demi Lovato as she stopped off in Edmonton for her world tour. Excited as I was I know that the Lovatics were even more ecstatic. The energy in the air was palpable.
After a very quick hi, photo and a thank you to Demi for her time, my motley crew and I headed upstairs to the Always & Tampax Radiant booth to snap a few silly pictures in the selfie station and then to check out the stunning red dress that Demi wore to the MTV Video Music awards. After a bit of fun and a dash to buy some t-shirts we grabbed some pizza and headed to our seats to catch the main event, and what an event it was.
Opening acts included MKTO, Christina Perry and Andee with a special appearance by Spencer West. They warmed us up with a playlist that included MKTO’s “Classic” , A fan favourite “A Thousand Years” sung by Perri, and a fantastic cover by Andee of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me. In between act one and two Spencer West took the stage to inspire with a taste of his, and Demi’s, journey with Free the Children, We day and Me to We and the work they do to empower youth as agents of change here at home and abroad.
All of that was amazing, but as soon as Demi hit the stage the crowd exploded and en masse they got to their feet to sing, and dance, along to Demi’s latest hit “Really Don’t Care”. Throughout the show fans got on their feet and sang along to the upbeat songs (I may have even joined in on a few). For the others they lit up Rexall place creating pinpoints of light that had Demi commenting that we were all like stars in the sky.
When Demi started singing Let it Go you could tell the fans had been waiting for it. I got goosebumps as the entire stadium sung along. Her cover of Thriller was also a real treat. You can tell that Demi is a born and bred performer by how she engages and entertains her fans from the stage with touching, and unscripted monologues. There are still a couple of stops in Canada before her tour heads back to the states. If you have a fan in your house this is a fantastic show, even for young kids. While at the concert make sure to stop by the Always & Tampax Radiant booth for some free samples and selfies.
