Demi Lovato’s Concert: Mardi Gras at Universal Studios

Call me crazy but I’d rather call it dedicated. I decided that it had been way too long since I last saw Demi Lovato. So myself along with two of my best friends flew all the way from our igloos in Canada to see her perform at Universal Studios in Florida. We literally only went for her, arriving Friday morning and departing Sunday morning.

Saturday morning we arrived at Universal Studios around 9:15am (the park opened at 9am). By that time there was already one line/barricaded area and we were in the second one with pink tickets. My friends and I were the ones playing Demi’s music. I was shocked at how cold it was. Camping out was not fun until I went and bought myself a Harry Potter blanket to cuddle up with on the hard ground. It was great talking to and meeting various other fans all day long.

At around 3pm when we had to go to the Hard Rock Cafe for our meet and greet. Unfortunately it meant missing soundcheck and getting spots for the concert. The VIP I purchased did not come with entry into the park so they didn’t have a special area for all of us meeting Demi to go to afterwards. The meet and greet was done through Golden Tickets who have renamed themselves Adventures in Wonderland. They have terrible customer service and sent and email telling us to show up at 2:45pm and they weren’t there until about 4:15pm. The package came with a Heart Attack poster (which I had stolen) lament and t-shirt. For those unaware meet and greets are very short and rushed. Sometimes security won’t even allow you to hug Demi but I went for it anyway. I mean, I just travelled all the way from Toronto, there was no way I wasn’t! Demi smells like rainbows and butterflies. I swear! I am so so so thankful for having the opportunity to hug her again. I would like to note that it took over 72 hours to receive my photograph from Golden Tickets.

General admission/free concerts are a mess. There was shoving, pushing and fighting from a ton of people, clearly not the fans. It was close to becoming a full on mob scene but once Demi came on stage everyone seemed to chill out. Her vocals impress me more and more every f*cking time I see her. She’s absolutely phenomenal and i’m so lucky to have been apart of the first crowd to ever hear her new single Heart Attack sung live.

Kate Voegele’s Concert

This is one girl I could talk forever about. Her voice amazes me more and more every time I see her perform. My best friend Arielle and I drove all from Toronto to Buffalo for this concert. I wasn’t able to attend hers the next week because i’d be in Cleveland for a youth group event. There was no way I was missing the chance to see one of my favourite people in the world. We arrived at the venue early and were some of the first people in line with some of our other friends. At one point we decided to run over to Starbucks to get food and on our way back it started to pour and we got absolutely drenched. My shoes were destroyed. Anyway, when we were allowed inside we ran to get front row spots and then went to the merchandise table to make sure we’d be able to meet Kate Voegele at the end of the show. First 50 people who but a t-shirt or her album get a wrist band. Long story short we partied all night long and it was great. It was more then that it was perfect.
