Posted by Jess Watt on September 17, 2010 12:39 PMThe last time M.I.A. played Toronto I danced on stage with her among many other fans. She invited her fans to dance on stage with her...who could pass that up? The time before that, I saw her perform as part of Austin City Limits, and yes, I danced on stage. Now the time before that if I remember correctly, she played Toronto's Virgin Festival on the island. No, I didn't dance on stage (it was my first M.I.A. concert), but a lot of other people sure did.
Who's Coming to Dance on stage with M.I.A. ?
So the question is begging to be asked, is she gonna invite her fans on stage when she plays Toronto's Sound Academy next Wednesday, the 22nd of September?
Tickets are still available at the usual outlets, so get on it, before this sells out!
I mean really, how cool is it to say you've danced on stage with M.I.A. ?
And if you're not the dancing type, simply go for the music....'Galang', 'Bamboo Banga', '20 Dollar' (a J&J favourite), some song called, 'Paper Planes' and her latest, 'XXXO' and the one with the ginger kids in the video, 'Born Free'.
Oh, and I hear Rye Rye is opening for her. If you like M.I.A. you're gonna LOVE Rye Rye.
See ya there? On stage perhaps?
