kings of leon - hamilton 19/09/09

the kings of leon
what can i say about the show last night besides it was unbelievable.
electric, fun, epic.

it was one of the best shows i've ever seen and i've seen some amazing acts. it had a lot to do with the crowd/band dynamic. the boys were loving us, calab was smiling the whole time. he said after the first 4 songs we were the best crowd all tour and that coming into hamilton they weren't expecting much (if you've never been to hamilton it's a city of 500,000 and they make steel there so half the city is pretty waterfront and half of it is towers of flames and piles of rock) but they'd never come to canada again if hamilton wasn't on the bill. calab said we made the show an experience the band would never forget. they were joking with us and with each other about how they couldn't even hear themselves, everyone was so loud and into it. they bowed for us forever after their 3 encore songs. i was standing dead center, ten rows in and stared at caleb all night but there was no sign of lily. although the place was packed so she could have been there. as for their reputation of no stage presence i must disagree, they were dancing around, very talkative and rocking out. whoever says that hasn't seen them with a good crowd because they were phenomenal last night. caleb was also drinking gatorade most of the night so perhaps that made a difference. i can't wait to see them again! but if the show isn't as good i'll look to the words of the boys, "if it's not forever, if it's just tonight, it's still the greatest!" nothing can tarnish the memory of last night.


i went with my sister. thanks for these pictures christine! it was her birthday present from me. you can see us above.

i wore my vintage over the knee boots, new hudson jeans. wildfox tank that exposed my mesh aritzia bra, zara scarf, twenty8twelve leather jacket, mulberry brooke bag,and oakley glasses.

great outfit! love the scarf :)
and the exposed bra is perfect KoL concert attire lol ;)
I wish i had been at your concert! I would have loved to have seen them as you're describing it!

and we were about the same place on the floor judging by your top picture. A few of our pictures pretty much locate the band at the exact same distance as you guys from the camera, but since the floor wasnt packed , we took advantage and moved around a lot.

was the floor sold out / packed for you guys?

omgod bellwoods park! I just love that park so much!!

i dont get why aritzia has no online store either- b r u t a l lol!

so glad it ended up being a little less packed for you because i sooooo know that feeling about crowd anxiety- i hate crowds, but i was like i'll take one for the team for the kings lol! and in the end, it was perfect! so much room to breathe, though i would have imagined, they were thinking otherwise lol! wonder if they'll ever come back to mtl....


just working on some nyc planning stuff! cant wait to see you :)

TY for the review!! your blog truly makes my day some days!!! today is one of those days!

Hey, great blog!! I've been following it for a while now. You and I seem to like all the same girls: Alexa Chung (who I discovered while living in the UK watching Popworld), Kristen Stewart and Isabel Lucas.

My best friend and I live near College and Bathurst now and we're starting our own streetsyle/inspo blog, I'll be sure to pass it along once it gets going. We need some local support and insight.

ps. Here's my blog, if you're interested- mostly political/social stuff...

re: georgia: the whole outfit is so sexyyy. I just love it. anything that resembles lingerie i fall for lol. it's my not-so-secret addiction ;)


and the boots / heels? they are to.die.for indeed and only a mere $1945 as tagged by WWW today for Vanessa Trainas picks, incidentally. I want e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. she lists!!!!! I was looking at a pair of balenciagas boot heels on barneys.com. they are $$ but more affordable than this to.die.for pair: trying to plan my splurge purchase so my shopping in nyc doesnt get out of hand: i like to come away form those trips with one solid purchase as opposed to a whole ton of smaller ones. like in boston, i bought the yellow citrine pavé DY ring: i love it and wear it 24/7. it was the only thing i bought and i know ill love for as close to forever :)
