Great concert, these guys are true musicians, very engaging with the audience. Appreciate the fact that he can make his point without using vulgar language. A class act through and through. You won't be disappointed
LOVED James Arthur!
My overall review of the show was pretty good. I REALLY wish that James Arthur had a longer set! Although I realize he was considered an "opener" I would have appreciated his performance much much longer than the 20min he was on. He's an amazing performer and could have easily utilized the time better than having 20min+ intermissions between each act. Made for a really long night with all that waiting. I hope he makes another stop in Wpg if he decides to plan a Canadian tour. Although I'm not a fan of Fitz & the Tantrums, they were amazing performers with a ton of energy! As for the main act, One Republic - they put on one hell of a show and their lead singer has got an amazing voice! He's got some serious pipes! Well done to the band as well. Such a diverse amount of instruments which made it that much more enjoyable to watch these entertainers. Every act were very humble which was great to see. I give it a 4 star rating!
Always deliver a great show
This was my third OneRepublic show and the group always delivers a first class performance. Very enjoyable show. Only downside was the parking situation in the area due to the TFC game at BMO field at the same time!
Why did it take me so long to see One Republic ?!
I've always loved their music but for some reasons had never made it to a concert. I showed up expecting to hear the familiar songs I hear on the radio and have a good time... and was just blown away by how great they are live. The fact that each member seems to play at least 3 instruments was truly impressive. And... well what can I say about Ryan Tedder that hasn't been said. True talent all around. I went home and keep listening to all their music with a new appreciation. Can't wait to see them again.
OneRepublic – More Energy than Ontario Hydro!
This was truly a concert that hit all the hot buttons for me. Budweiser Stage – I love this venue (although Ontario Place overall looks like a set for the next season of "The Walking Dead" - big shame on the city of Toronto). Each of the 3 acts; James Arthur, Fitz & The Tantrums and last but not least, One Republic, were all generously giving a show to remember. James Arthur had the daunting task of being first to warm up the early arrivers – no easy job for such an event, but mission accomplished, even with his stressed out vocal chords. The output of energy and artistry was nothing short of extraordinary. Perfect summer evening outside with some of the world's finest talent giving their hearts and souls.
