Huntington - On March 26, pop princess Carly Rae Jepsen performed at The Paramount in Huntington, as part of her "Gimmie Love" headlining tour.
Cardiknox and Fairground Saints served as her special musical guests, and both groups were able to warm up the stage for Jepsen, and they got the fans stimulated for the show, which was presented by the radio station 106.1 BLI.
Jepsen opened her set with "Run Away With Me," as yellow laser lights dimmed on the stage, and she was able to hit the high notes. It was followed by the sassy and fun "Making the Most of the Night," which subsequently featured purple laser lights.
"Oh my God. Thank you for being here with us tonight. This is our last stop for our U.S. tour," Jepsen said, prior to noting that it was emotional. She went on to thank her talented opening acts, Fairground Saints and Cardiknox for playing tonight.
She immediately broke into "Emotion," the title track of her latest album, which was about her ex-boyfriend. Jepsen noted that in "Warm Blood" she was able to let out some of her secrets, and shared that she was drawn to it due to its intimacy.
During this tour, Jepsen told the audience that she experienced problems with her bus, but she asked her fans if they ever had "boy problems," and she went on to perform "Boy Problems." Throughout this performance, she had her fans in general admission waving their hands up in the air.
"This Kiss" was infectious and fun, to the point where her younger fans were dancing along. "Favourite Colour" was a tender ballad that she dedicated to the audience tonight, since it was a "beautiful get together with people."
Her tour's name "Gimmie Love" was an upbeat anthem, and "Good Time" was equally fun and catchy, which she performed as a duet with her guitar player.
Equally remarkable was the power-ballad "Tonight I'm Getting Over You," where she showcased a great deal of inner strength, and towards the end of her show, she closed with such smash hits as "I Really Like You" and her multi-week chart-topping single "Call Me Maybe."
The Verdict
Overall, Carly Rae Jepsen put on a remarkable live show at The Paramount in Huntington. She was able to showcase her bubbly personality, and she interacted well with all of her fans. Both of her opening acts were exceptional as well. Her concert garnered 4.5 out of 5 stars.
