Promiscuous Girl Makes Montreal Stop


Just a few pics from last night’s Nelly Furtado concert at the Bell Center. Fresh off her sweep from the Junos, Nelly brought her Get Loose tour to Montreal. Great concert, lots of fun and Nelly can definitely sing. Opening acts were the hyper Jon Levine Band and the too cool Saukrates. Had great seats on the floor about 20 rows from the stage but too bad my camera ran out of juice and couldn’t get any good shots. But it was a great night. I wasn’t a big fan of Nelly’s first CD but funny how everything sounds better when remixed and live in concert. I really like the hip hop influence on the current album Loose so I’m glad she performed a lot of tracks off the new CD. Of course, the crowd pleasers were big hits like the opening song Afraid and Say It Right or Promiscuous with Saukrates filling in for Timbaland. During a costume change, one of the backup singers performed a pretty good version of Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back that kept the crowd pumping. For the song Forca, Nelly appeared in a Habs jersey which sent the crowd cheering. She told the crowd that she doesn’t put on a different jersey in every city but that her father’s favourite team is the Montreal Canadiens so that’s the only one she’ll wear. What a girl. She knows just how to charm a crowd. Nelly’s dancers threw out soccer balls into the audience and Portuguese fans waved their flags like crazy. A lucky guy two rows up from me managed to catch one of the soccer balls. All in all, a pretty fun night with a packed house, great beats, and great Canadian talent.
