|2012 CHUM FM FANFEST: Train, Fefe Dobson, Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench and more|
One part of Canadian Music Week I look forward to most every year is the Line-up at 104.5 CHUM FM's Fanfest and once again this year they did not disappoint, bringing-in three-time GRAMMY Winners Train as the Headliner. The Trio performed a generous Set which included Hits Hey, Soul Sister, Drops of Jupiter and their latest, Drive By and apparently a bra may have been tossed on-stage at one point! A Tribute to Journey was even thrown-in for good measure!
Others to grace the stage at Masonic Temple this evening included super-hot Carly Rae Jepsen (recently signed to Interscope Records in the U.S.) who unfortunately couldn't stop for many Photos on her way in and out of the Venue, Marianas Trench, Fefe Dobson (filling-in for Hedley whom had issues flying to Toronto), The New Cities, Victoria Duffield (!!) and more.
After the four-hour-long Show, some patient Fans got to meet their Idols (some sober, some tipsy) outside the Venue and Train Lead Vocalist Pat Monahan was most gracious stopping to take Photos with hoards of female Fans, despite some of his Handlers trying to curtail it. Meanwhile Duffield was low-key avoiding the radar of Fans who waited all night for her. Rock Diva Suzie McNeil was spotted supporting her Pal Josh Ramsay, Frontman of Marianas Trench. After exchanging hugs, she tells me "My Album will be released at some point...", commenting on when we can expect new Music from her.
Until next year...
