K-Pop group GOT7 hit the stage at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (June 30) during their Keep Spinning World Tour, giving fans a high-energy, song-packed night to remember.
As someone who’s relatively new to the world of k-pop, and whose knowledge of GOT7 and their music pales in comparison to the passionate fans who filled out the arena, GOT7 delivered an electrifying show that was befitting for both long-time and new fans.
The group kicked the show off their with their single Eclipse from their latest EP, Spinning Top, before performing over 20 song, including songs off the new EP and some of their other hits, like Lullaby and Just Right.
Throughout the three-hour show, GOT7 brought an impressive amount of energy, with several dance-heavy songs with choreography that had me mesmerized to the point where I spent more time watching the in-person versions of the group more than their big-screen projections so I could could watch them move together as a group.
But the show wasn’t all just about eye-catching performances. JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom also showed a more personal side of themselves with frequent breaks to chat with the crowd, where they talked about their performances, the ideas and meaning behind their music, and also shared a little bit about themselves. Again, as someone who went into the concert not entirely sure of who each of the members were, I walked out knowing each of their names and faces and feeling like I really know the group as a whole.
During their lengthy encore, it was also heartwarming to see GOT7 take the time to have some fun and interact more closely with their fans, throwing water at the crowd (and each other), playing with toys from fans, and getting closer to fans by taking selfies with their cameras and phones and greeting them up close.
Another thing that caught my attention was the crowd itself. Apart from their undying enthusiasm, light sticks and fan chants, I don’t think I’ve ever encountered an audience so friendly and at-ease with one another. It was hard to believe they were complete strangers, as many seemed to naturally turn to each other to strike up conversations, exchanging stories on their GOT7 and k-pop experiences, talking about their biases, and how lucky they are to be able to see a k-pop group perform live in Canada. Also, their energy was truly infectious.
GOT7 made themselves another fan that night. Since the concert, I’ve added quite a few of their songs to my music library and may have listened to Page a little too much. If you have the chance to check them out in a city near you, I’d say, go for it. You’ll be in for an enjoyable, electrifying night!
The group are set to continue their tour tonight (July 3) with a show in Dallas, Texas, before heading to Los Angeles for a show this weekend (July 3).
