The Wanted - Word of Mouth Tour 2014 - Toronto
I think it’s safe to say that this was one emotional concert.
Yes, the boys killed it on stage performing many hit songs. Yes, their choreographed swaying and perfect poses were on point. Yes, Max George looked exquisite (sorry, I had to fit that in there)! But knowing that this may be the last time they take the stage in Toronto… breaks my heart juuuust a tiny bit.
The show was a great trip down memory lane for any fan of The Wanted. Performing some of their older hits such as Gold Forever and All Time Low, the boys had the crowd bouncing and singing along to every word. Not the mention the dance party that broke out when they performed Chasing the Sun…yeah, I’m guilty of contributing to that.
Their honest engagement with fans throughout the show was, for lack of a better word, amazing. I remember glancing over to the left side of the stage and seeing Nathan snap a selfie with a fans phone. Pan to stage right, there’s Jay having a quick, casual conversation with some of the girls in front row. Their silly antics also had the crowd (and myself!) cracking up - glad to know they haven’t lost their sense of humour over the last four years.
Ending the show with their summer chart topper and most popular hit worldwide, Glad You Came was the song that had everyone smiling and dancing with arms in the air. This is one of my all-time favourite songs…so you can just imagine what I was doing. I feel extremely lucky to have experienced their last show in Toronto. Here’s to hoping that it isn’t actually their last tour ever but rather, a break!
