Too Short - bad Knaan

Let's put this into perspective. We traveled from Ottawa to Vancouver expressly to see this show. First time at GM Place - WTF? No bar inside to have a drink BEFORE the show - just concessions?

Bushwalla opened and was awesome. Only three songs - but audience participation that was magical. He then introduced K'Naan. This is the reason why people usually skip the opening act. He started with some really nice tunes but then went into a lecture about Somalia and Africa and the political situation there. Look, we get it - you're all about Africa - but no one came to get lectured. Shut up and play - which he didn't - he would interrupt songs to make political statements and then even called out the wrong city (TO instead of Vancouver).

To make it worse, after he left, it took over 45 minutes for Jason's stage to get set. How do I know? When you can play the entire standard Cars album and then some, you're definitely in there way too long.

When Jason did finally come out, it was closer to 9 than the 7pm the show started at. He played for one hour before the encore - 60 minutes - 10 songs, very nice, a great duet with Bushwalla, but with 10 songs, you really shouldn't try to pull in the audience participation on the 3rd song as though you had been playing for a while. We had pretty good seats where we could see the stage and their faces. Until they did the encore - at the other END of the arena. Nice idea but his back was to the audience the entire time. People were leaving - some to try and get to the front. I felt for the floor audience who had been waiting since 5pm to get in (we saw them) and then they got 1 hour and then had to rush the other stage.

We left at that point - I know his last song was to be Butterfly - he played three songs in the other area. Not sure how he got back to the main stage but he did.

I think the stadium production isn't the way to see Jason Mraz - he wanted to please everyone and in the end, didn't please anyone. And dump K'Naan - he obviously doesn't get how to be an opening act. I wish Bushwalla had done the entire opening thing.
