Concert Review / by Daynan Lepore on Lauren Alaina,The Cadillac Three & Dallas Smith at FirstOntario Conert Hall Oct 24,2017

A huge name like Dallas Smith, amazing songwriters The Cadillac Three, and one of the best voices in country, Lauren Alaina showed Hamilton what they had on October 24th. Lauren Alaina started out the show with a 5 piece band including herself, all of which shared her fun onstage personality. For a semi new artist, not many people would of came to the show to watch her alone but i doubt they left disappointed. Lauren interacts well with her fans and shares personal stories about her songs and her inspiration for writing some of them. She had some fun during her song Next Boyfriend when she brought up Derek from the front row to dance along stage with her, making him do a number of laughable things like nay nay and twerk for everyone to see. Laurens reaction was priceless as she couldn’t believe she could make someone do that, hinting at her fun side. This is Lauren’s first Canadian Tour. The Cadillac Three, three guys who just love to have fun, and that’s exactly what they did with their 8 song set list. Not slowing down for even a moment, these guys know how to rock a crowd. Listening to Jaren sing live really makes you appreciate his voice. He is one of those voices you want to hear in person. Jaren and the other two Cadillac members aren’t new to the scene either, writing songs with legendary artists like Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, and even main act Dallas Smith. Their combined talent put on a show to rival Dallas’. However by the end of the night, once Dallas and his band came on the crowd was on their feet the rest of the night. Dallas brings a whole different atmosphere to the concert hall, connecting with each and every fan on stage, trying to talk to individuals and taking probably over 50 selfies throughout the night with fans phones, there’s no doubt the ladies loved him. Dallas didn’t play the show alone enough he also brought out two newer artists, Shawn Austin being one, a new artist Dallas is trying to help. He has a great little single out now called Paradise Found. The next artist Dallas showcased was Andrew Whyatt who also has a single out now called Do It With You. It most primarily teens in the front rows getting selfies and snapchats minus an older couple each not a day over 60 dancing and making out front and centre. Dallas must have been waiting for the slow song in the setlist to come on for him to invite them up there. So when Autograph was about to be played Dallas invited the couple up to the stage to dance. Not do the twerk but just slow dance. They may have taken advantage though slipping in a bit too much PDA for most but oh well it was a concert. Between the 3 acts that played there was no doubt it was going to be a great show and they did not let down. Setlist for Dallas Smith: SIde Effects Sky Stays this Blue Wasting Gas If it gets you where you wanna go Slow rollin Sleeping around One little kiss Wasting my time Count on me Nothing but summer Kids with cars Something just like this 50/50 Girl like you Autograph Jumped right in Lifted Encore: Somebody Tippin point Cheap seats
