Canaan Smith Dan + Shay 7:30 PM Paradise Rock Club Boston, Massachusetts
When I first heard that Dan + Shay were bringing their show to Boston, I knew I had to go. Unfortunately, I somehow missed the pre-sale and normal ticket sales. The show sold out verrrry quickly. I checked Stub Hub and the tickets were out of my budget since everyone was over selling them. I had accepted the fact that I just wouldn't be able to see my fav duo perform.
The morning of the show crept up and I knew I had to go. So, I checked Stub Hub again annnnd to my delight, I found a reasonably priced ticket! I was so excited. I decided to buy the ticket. I knew the arena was only standing room, and since I am short, I knew I would want to get a good spot. I went to the venue area around 3 and noticed that there was a line already. It wasn't too far from the entrance so I decided to stand in line. Call me crazy, but seriously, I wanted to see the guys, not having to try to peer over someone's shoulder the whole night. #shortpeopleprobs to the max.
Canaan Smith was their opener. While waiting in line outside, I thought I had seen him helping his band carry equipment inside. Of course, it was and I had wished I said something, but that chance passed.
I only knew one song of his, and it is his current single, Love You Like That. I really enjoyed his set though. I want to buy his music because he is really good. I also liked his cover of Jealous. The dude can hit high notes like it was nothing! I also liked the rawness when he sang a song that he wrote about his brother that passed away.
One thing I noticed about Dan was he has perfected 'the smolder.' It makes hearts melt everywhere Dan!
I could have had the chance to meet them again, BUT I was too slow to buy something from the merch table to get a wristband. I SHOULD have gone by the merch table before to snag one, but I preferred to get a good spot center stage. In which I do not regret that decision as I had a great view of the whole concert. Lesson learned for next time - go by merch table first OR get VIP tickets.
I definitely recommend going to a Dan + Shay concert if you ever get the chance. They love their fans, they put on one hell of a show, and you will not regret going. Ever.
Dan even came into the crowd after their set. Not sure how he made it out in one piece, but not many artists do that!
