Beyoncé’s halo got caught in a fan while singing “Halo.” Seriously! I am not making this up.
Having left Toronto, after Sundays performance the Mrs. Carter Tour headed to Montreal. Maybe in this case headed is not a good word to use .
While in Montreal Monday night on her Mrs. Carter World Tour, Bey’s tresses got tangled up in one of the many wind machines that line the stage. The star’s luscious blonde weave was no match for the fan but, like a true superstar, Beyoncé just kept on singing while her bodyguard Julius attempted to free her.
Thankfully she wasn’t hurt — well, maybe just her pride was. However, the 31-year-old star proved that she can laugh at herself by sharing a fan’s video of the mishap on her Instagram account. She also went a step further and snapped a photo of a note with rewritten lyrics to “Halo” that reflected the hair-snatching snafu: “I felt my hair was yankiiiiiiin, from the fan that’s always hatiiiiiin.”
Well you gotta have a sense of humor. Her fans the human factor they just adore her. Check out this video from her Toronto stop.
I saw Cavalia show about 6 years ago on the sandy shores of Santa Monica and I left feeling like I was floating among the clouds to the sound of ocean waves rolling onto the shore.
Today it was Toronto, a day before the show opens to view the magic that awaits all those who will attend the show.
Cavalia’s Odysseo is just a high-tech marvel with changing landscapes, waterfalls, a lake that appears as if by magic, and you would never know that there is a massive tank of water sitting below the stage ready to shoot the water up causing this lake.
I had a chance to speak to the tour manager, who informed me this tour is bigger then U2, or anything that the Rolling Stones have ever mounted, requiring 100 trucks. That’s a lot of trucks.
The show has music that transforms you into another world, as the horses and human fuse creating a spectacular colorful show, with dancers and acrobats. This is visual orgasm. The show stuns your senses and all those involved in it are passionate about the work they do and are loving every minute the opportunity to entertain those who come to see this one amazing show.
I love horses, riding and playing polo. The horsemanship in the show that involves eleven different breed of horses is thrilling, exciting, combined with the open space under the massive tent and visual effects leaves you breathless.
For me this was really a place of magic. As I was leaving those who showed me into the show asked how I liked it? I told them I did not want to leave this world and go to the world awaiting outside, with car’s, traffic, and building’s. The world I had arrived in and the experience I had just had left me wanting for more, the freedom of nature in which horses roam free, and dance to the music with fellow humans in harmony.
The Gold Coast of Australia was a great time for me. It was in Australia that my sponsored Indy Car Racing team of American Spirit came in first and second. So for me it will be a great time to return to Australia looking at the people and talking to them about the artist and performer who gave us magic in Canada. Prince.
After a not-so-cryptic hint yesterday, one of the greatest entertainers of our era has finally announced his return to Australia.
His name is Prince, and he is set to bring a 360 degree arena spectacular to Australia this May.
Arguably the definitive pop artist of the past three decades, Prince has steadfastly played by his own rules – continuing to release quality material through a variety of unconventional methods.
His live performance is stuff of legend, rocking through an immaculate canon of certified classics – including Purple Rain, Let’s Go Crazy, Kiss and countless more.
Prince performs at Rod Laver Arena on Monday May 14.
The best place to start the Prince tour to Australia for me, was not far form the design center for Prince on Queen Street West of Magpie. Nearby I found Mark Fosco who has a band called Rad Habits sitting with his guitar chilling. Mark told me he can do that as he has no girl-friend. I did manage to tell him that it is a good thing, leaves us time to do what we want to do, and it really is not a good idea if you are gonna be a rocker.
So here we go, from Toronto where Prince began his Welcome 2 Canada Tour with comments from Mark Fosco of the band Rad Habits, views on Prince and why everyone will be ecstatic to see his live show.
