Opening Act Spends Entire Set Asking Crowd How They’re Doing Tonight
May 14th - Reports indicate that the opening act at a Jason Derulo concert in New Orleans, Louisiana, spent their entire 20-minute set loudly yelling various questions to the audience asking about their current well-being.
Jimmy T & The Bee Stings, a locally popular heavy metal/country/smooth jazz group from Manchester, New Hampshire, made the surprising decision to avoid playing any songs from their albums in an attempt to develop a stronger relationship with the audience.
“They really had me going when they came on stage and yelled ‘How you doin’ tonight New Orleans??’ I was so pumped up at that point that I almost cancelled my plans to do cocaine in the bathroom before the show began,” said Louis, a New Orleans native who says he was doing quite well. “But it didn’t stop there. They strummed a few chords on an electric guitar and then shot confetti out of a cannon while screaming ‘ARE YOU HAVING FUN NEW ORLEANS’ for a solid five minutes. There’s no doubt in my mind that this was one of the most amazing displays of showmanship I’ve ever seen. By the time the confetti stopped falling, the band was just walking through the crowd asking every individual person to describe how they were feeling tonight on a scale from 1 to 10.”
Despite not having played a single song the entire night, Jimmy T & The Bee Stings sold a staggering 175,000 copies of their album “You Still Good? Just Checking” within 24 hours after the show.
