We left 2 hours prior to the stated start time & got stuck in traffic waiting to get into the Sleep Train Pavilion. On the way in, we saw dark grey clouds, but found out that there was a fire a little distance away. Thank goodness the concert didn't get cancelled! We finally got into the venue & we got in line to buy merch. I was finally at a BSB concert & wasn't gonna leave without a tour tee dammit!
Chillin' before the concert
After getting a smoothie & taking a photo with the STAR 101.3 radio peeps, we headed inside to find DJ Pauly D (yes, that guy from Jersey Shore) doing his thing. I found it very entertaining that he kept fistpumping, haha. What I found even more interesting is that I finally gave in & fistpumped with him for the last few minutes of his gig, haha :P

After a very brief set change, it was Jesse McCartney that hit the stage next! His outfit reminded me of a darker version of Psy's in Gangnam Style, lol. Anyhoo, this boy has moves *giggle* Vinh & I were thoroughly entertained by him. Not to mention we got to preview two new songs from his upcoming CD as well. Why is he so charming & my age to boot? As his performance went on, the jacket & suspenders came off...not that any of the gals in the audience minded ;)
His set list included: Leavin', How Do You Sleep, So Cool (new), Body Language, Checkmate, Shake, Back Together (new), Over, You're Beautiful
Gangnam style? lol
Serenading time ;)
We had to wait a little longer for the Backstreet Boys to come on stage, but the wait was totally worth the wait! I cannot even begin to describe the energy that filled the room when the boys finally appeared on stage. Let's just say teeny bopper Annie came out & I didn't give a hoot! Vinh described it as an estrogen pit, bahahahaa! They danced, had at least 3-4 outfit changes, sang acapella, danced some more, sand old songs & new ones, & did their boy band thing like no one else can. I don't know how else to describe it except that it probably fulfilled my Backstreet Boys fix for a long time! Dare I say best concert ever? I'm biased so HECK YEA!
Their set list included: The Call, Don't Want You Back, Incomplete, All I Have To Give, As Long As You Love Me, Show 'Em What You're Made Of, Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely, Breathe, I'll Never Break Your Heart, We've Got It Goin' On, Safest Place To Hide, Madeleine, Quit Playing Games, The One, Love Somebody, More Than That, In A World Like This, I Want It That Way, Everybody, Larger Than Life
Happy after Jesse's set
OMG BSB! *squees*
All five of them together again!
So visually stimulating
Raise up those phones Concord!
Such a pretty stage
I can't say enough about the visual effects
Thank you boys for an amazing night!
The boys pretended to close twice, pretending to end with "I Want It That Way" & then again with "Everybody." Of course, they ended with "Larger Than Life" which I thought was very appropriate given that the song was written for the fans cuz you all know we made them larger than life ;)
They took their final bow & AJ picked up a hot pink bra that was thrown on stage & put it on, bahahahaa :P
AJ wearing a hot pink bra, haha!
Would I ever go to another BSB concert? You bet your tushy I would! Anyone wanna come with since Vinh is so done with the estrogen pit that is a BSB concert (yes, he did enjoy himself)?
