Girlicious made its second appearance in Winnipeg last week and they never fail to impress! All seats in the Pantages were filled with screaming teens going crazy for their favorite girl group.
Elise Estrada (who we featured at Shopgirl) opened up the show at 8:08. She hit the stage with a DJ and a hypeman/piano player. She had 2 female dancers with her on stage as well. She would perform 10 songs and end her set at 8:50.
Danny Fernandez followed with another opening at 9:06. He would hit the stage with 2 male dancers. Danny Fernandez is more known for his dancing abilities which came as a relief since Elise Estrada’s dancers were more their for their ‘looks’ than their dancing. Danny would throw multiple copies of his newest CD ‘Intro’ into the crowd and they would go crazy! One of Danny’s dancer actually almost fell off the stage while tossing CD’s – that wouldn’t have been good at all since it was a pretty high drop to the floor. Danny Fernandez’s set would end at 9:35.
Girlicious hit the stage at 9:53 with nothing but 4 mic stands. They had some nice track and field style clothing probably sponsored by Adidas. Tiffany was sporting an AWESOME Obama shirt that you can see in the pictures below. The biggest disappoint of the show however was that Girlicious was lip-syncing their entire set. It was very unfortunate since they did an AMAZING job with their live performance at Blush earlier this year that had no lip syncing at all. Regardless, the girls danced their hearts out and still put on an amazing show for their fans. Their set would end at 10:26.
A big shout out goes out to Stephen and Sound Republic for putting on another amazing show. Since the show was on a Monday night and a lot of the teens attending had school the next day, Sound Republic did an amazing job keeping the show on time and moving forward. Danny Fernandez and Elise Estrada both stayed after to do an autograph signing in the lobby. All ticket holders also got free entrance to the official after party at the EEC with Elise Estrada.
I’m looking forward to Sound Republics next event, Jabbawockeez at the Centennial Concert Hall on Novemeber 11, and I hope its just as organized as this one! Hit the jump for all the photos from our official photographer, Oli.
