The Metric Concert was absolutely brilliant! I'm very glad I bought tickets! The tickets I purchased were actually quite special, they were VIP tickets which meant I had to arrive early to pick up merchandise such as posters and t-shirts. I had the opportunity to purchase "Meet and Greet" tickets to meet Metric but I decided I wouldn't be comfortable doing that. I never want to meet someone I idolize, I think it would spoil it.
The opening band for Metric was another Canadian indie band from Toronto named Stars. They were quite interesting especially since they had to two vocalists, one male and one female. They would take turns singing or sometimes sing together. I quite enjoyed their music. I think they were an excellent choice to open for Metric. Later on Emily Haines made it clear that Stars were very close to her. It seems like they're all really good friends.
The concert featured a light show which was well timed and beautiful. What impressed me the most was the music. It actually sounded better live! I've been to quite a few concerts and typically the music is well...mediocre. Some artists are just not that great live but Metric, they were absolutely phenomenal. Especially Emily Haines. What a voice! What a spectacular voice! She can sing!
Near the end of the concert Metric left the stage and giant numbers began flashing starting at "120" and counting down. It was brilliant, it made everyone excited and count down the last 10 seconds. Then Metric came back out and played a few more songs. They finished on "Gimme Sympathy" to acoustic and her singing. People pulled out lighters and mobile phones, it was very sweet. The whole band was very touched, the song meant a lot to them.
All in all the concert was terrific. I had a great time and I'm happy I had the chance to see Metric live.
Tonight I will be attending the Metric concert! I'm very excited! I've never had the opportunity to see them live before. I will be writing a blog post about it after the concert but I suspect it will be quite late by then. So don't wait up! Tomorrow I'm going to Just for Laughs! What a busy couple of days! I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences.
In honour of Metric please listen to one of my favourite songs.
