Michael Bublé Recap
It seems like every time this Burnaby boy comes home, his shows get bigger, better, and… Bublé-er.
Once again, Bublé’s long-time friends and touring partners Naturally 7 helped him open the first shows of his Canadian “To Be Loved” tour. They displayed their unique “Vocal Play” style with performances of “Fix You” and original tracks, and got the crowd boogying by teaching the all-ages, mostly-female audience some easy dance moves.
Bublé spoiled his hometown with not one, but two sold-out shows to kick off his Canadian arena tour. Before the show, he said in an interview, “I think I’m one of the best in the world at what I do. I hope I’m a humble guy but I don’t say that with humility. I really believe I love doing what I do and it shows.” A big statement – and he delivered on his promise. Let us recap.
After starting the show like a “first date” with the audience, with his romantic, slow tracks, he switched gears with a cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”.
The dance number segued into a duet with Naturally 7 on the B stage, where he got up close and personal with lucky fans.
After finishing with his latest single “It’s a Beautiful Day”, Bublé did a quick outfit change and came out for a dramatic, booming encore of “Cry Me a River”.
And after all the jazzy band ensembles and strings accompaniments, Bublé put them all away to end on “A Song for You”; with no mic between him and the 17,000 in attendance, it truly felt like he was singing to each individual in the room.
