20 Magmazing Major Concert Moments of 2013

2013 was a year of crossing off a bunch of bucket list bands and songs to see live. It wasn’t the most stand out year… probably because I didn’t really attend as many major concerts this year. I missed out on a bunch of concerts in Vancouver including two I seriously wish I hadn’t missed. I wasn’t there to see Pearl Jam perform ‘Jeremy’ live in Vancouver. And I missed out on seeing Nine Inch Nails in Vancouver as well. But there were still a ton of memorable major moments I was able to capture on video So let’s get to my Top 20 Magmazing Major Concert Moments of 2013.

Top Concert Moments of 2013: Number 3

<< NUMBER 4 NUMBER 2 >>


3. – Phoenix & R. Kelly at Coachella 2013 Weekend One- Ignition (April 13, 2013)

And the award for most bizarre cameo in a music festival headlining set goes to… R. Kelly showing up to perform a mashup of his song Ignition with Phoenix’s 1901… Phoenix being a headliner was already weird enough. Then there were all the rumors and hype about Daft Punk making a surprise appearance. When R. Kelly started by singing the opening lines from his song ‘Bump N’ Grind’ I think half the audience was wondering “Why is someone singing an R. Kelly song?” and the other half was wondering “who the hell is that?” I guess the bizarreness of the whole situation is what made it memorable and #3 on my top moments of 2013.

18. – Fly Moon Royalty at Rock of The Woods 2013- Step Hard & Piece of Me (July 27, 2013)

Fly Moon Royalty from Seattle were a pleasant surprise for me and many who attended the 2013 Rock of The Woods music festival near Duncan in July. Their high energy show had the festival audience moving from beginning to end. Later in the year they performed a sold out show at Victoria’s Lucky Bar.
