If you were planning to catch Selena Gomez's Revival tour somewhere in Canada at the end of this month, you'll want to listen up: she recently had to reschedule the shows she was set to perform in Toronto and Ottawa! Though fans are obviously upset, it's not Selena's fault. The Toronto Raptors advancement to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals are forcing her to reschedule, as they will be needing the Canadian Tire Centre.
The schedule now is as follows: Selena will be performing in Ottawa on May 22 (accompanied by supporting acts Tyler Shaw and Bea Miller) and then on May 25 in Toronto (accompanied by Bea Miller and Joe Jonas and his band, DNCE).
Though it's pretty inconvenient to have a date change this late in the game, at least they aren't being cancelled altogether! Fortunately, if the alternative date doesn't work for you, refunds will be available at point of purchase until this Friday.
The 23-year-old Texan has dubbed this outing her Revival Tour, which makes sense since it's supporting her sophomore release of the same name. Yet, a more appropriate moniker for the trek might be the Arrival Tour.
There were no Orlando Bloom sightings, Justin Bieber signs torn or other tabloid-worthy moments, like there had been at recent Gomez shows. And we didn't need them. She was able to thrill the 10,000-plus fans just by diving into her two chart-topping albums, 2013's "Stars Dance" and last year's "Revival," bolstered by some great choreographed danced routines and a steady succession of cool outfits.
Opening with the arresting electro-pop nugget "Same Old Love," Gomez delivered a well-paced 80-minute set that sparkled with personality and sailed along with a sense of purpose. It was the kind of bold, mature and ambitious outing that we've seen from Beyonce, Katy Perry and, occasionally, Lady Gaga over the years.
Sure, Gomez doesn't have nearly the songbook of those other stars. Too many of her songs still come across like the musical equivalent of cotton candy. Yet, a good sugar rush can be fun now and again. Plus, with the release of "Revival," her catalog is definitely trending up.
She's crazy about her fans - dedicating her Instagram to photos of her with them. And Selena Gomez's dedicated fanbase are just as devoted to her, waiting for hours to grab a picture with the star.
The singer rocked a triumphant pose as she mugged for one of her trademark fan pictures outside her Ottowa, Canada show. The 23-year-old has been traveling through Canada for her Revival Tour, which brought her to the Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday, followed by a stop at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario the next day.
The tiny shorts showed off the hitmaker's toned pins, and she coupled them with a pair of heeled, black boots. She covered up with an over-sized, light wash denim jacket, and looked elated as she posed with a massive crowd of her fans.
Selena's long tresses were styled in voluminous curls, and her eyes were closed in the shot while her mouth was open, as if shouting in delight.
How sweet! Selena Gomez broke down in tears while singing her classic song ‘Who Says’ at her Revival Tour concert stop in Montreal, Canada on May 26. Get the tissues out before you watch this cute video!
Aw! Selena Gomez, 23, has a knack for bringing us to tears, but she has officially outdone herself. The “Hands to Myself” singer lost it while onstage on May 26 for her Revival Tour stop in Montreal. She was performing a touching rendition of her song “Why Says,” and the crowds response prompted her to break down in tears.
Selena Gomez’s Revival album marked several firsts in the 23-year-old’s career. It was the first album she released outside of the Disney-owned Hollywood Records where she got her start. It was also the first time she served as executive producer on her own album, racking up more songwriting writing credits than ever before. Not surprisingly, Gomez is more attached to her new music than her previous work. “I haven’t toured for two years, and there’s such a difference when you perform music that you created,” she tells EW in late April. “Singing songs that represent everything I am is just the best feeling in the world.”
“For all of my songs, I’ve got my full band, and everybody is just bringing a different flavor to everything that we’ve done. All the songs have their own charms to them. None of it really sounds like the record. ‘Hands to Myself’ definitely changed the most.” “We had to speed it up; it was a little slower. We added more support with a guitar [in] the middle to pick up the pace. But it sounds beautiful.”
“I love Stargate more than anything, but it’s very difficult for me to perform live. It’s not my song. To me, it sounds like a Rihanna reject. I’m currently in the middle of figuring out what it’s going to sound like. I’m working with Stargate on the new album—they did ‘Same Old Love’ with me—and we’ve created such an awesome relationship. That was just in the beginning. I was so young. I was wanting a hit: ‘I don’t know if I need a hit, but maybe I do so people can respect me?’ I’m grateful what [‘Come & Get It’] did for me, so it’d be stupid not to acknowledge it.”
“That was produced by Rock Mafia, who I’ve known since I was 14. They produced the first single I ever released, which was ‘Tell Me Something I Don’t Know’ for a TV movie I did. They’ve been with me forever. They know my tone and they know where I can go. [‘Love You Like a Love Song’] was the first time I felt like it was my sound. When you hear it, it’s my song. That was such a great moment for me. We did an even cooler version for the tour. There’s nothing that brings me more joy than to go back and visit that.”
