Standing amongst so many die hard fans of Jacob Sartorius is very refreshing as the fog machines are set and begin to take up the entire Fillmore Silver Spring venue in Maryland. In anticipation of “THE LEFT ME HANGIN’ TOUR” which is officially about to take flight, all the youth are heavily in the building representing, and as they grow tired of the wait for the main attraction, they chant “Jacob, JACOB“, to the beat of every groove the DJ plays, to soften the time passing. The security had to request the crowd to move back twice so far, because everyone’s excitement has them subconsciously rushing the stage. As I look around, I am positively impressed and wonder if it is enough space to hold the bursting energy levels of this determined but loving crowd, who would give anything just to be in the presence of this highly sought after Pop sensation. Some calling Jacob Sartorius the next Justin Bieber, and for good reason, as his significant rise to fame at such a rapid speed has taken everyone by storm. Putting this young man on a high pedestal in their hearts and playlists, is a no brainer. Plus, once you factor in the way this crowd is going crazy for him, it is well expected for him to have a very successful future in this music industry as such trailblazing artists, Justin, Miley, and others.
With numbers skyrocketing past the insane 14 million mark in followers and 55 million + in views, he has proven fan support is extremely valuable. As Jacob’s concert began, he had two great fully hyped artists named: Hayden Summerall and Zach Clayton hit the stage as his special guest, who both really did their thing! Then, when it was time for him to grace the stage, he had a wonderful digital display of various visuals that turned into him appearing center stage, and boy did the crowd go wild.
This tour stop, being his first of 28 total, is lit and he came out ready to party with his DMV hometown. Performing more than 12 songs back to back, he had the crowd jumping, literally. Singing all the words to each song became the norm as you scanned the crowd. Singing along to his hits from his “The Last Text EP” and “Left Me Hangin’ Album”, such songs blazed the room like: “Hit or Miss”,“BINGO”, “Skateboard”, “Last Text”, “Chapstick”, and “Sweatshirt”.
This young man is working so hard. Creating major waves on the charts worldwide and gaining notoriety with impotant nominations under his belt, and now once again, physically touring to get up close and personal with all of his ginormous fan base. He is a catch with a ton of catchy tunes, as millions would agree on Musical.ly, YouVines, Instagram and Twitter. So, if you have children and you want to go out and have a great time turning up together, in a safe environment, go see Jacob Sartorius in a city near you. Get ready New York, New Haven, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Cincinnati and Atlanta, because y’all are up next on his tour stops. Get your tickets now and blast his music all the way there to the show. ….And don’t worry Europe, he will be headlining with his tour there in April 2018. As well as a future tour in the UK, where he has several dates with “The Vamps”, also starting in April 2018.
