The USA Pear family and some lucky contest winners (there’s still time for you, too – visit www.usapears.org to enter to win) got to experience the opportunity of a lifetime last week when Honor Society came to Portland to open up for the Jonas Brothers’ world tour. Soundcheck with one of the hottest bands in the country? Meet and greet with our favorite new group? Both bands and an American Idol winner live in concert? We got to enjoy all of the above.
The afternoon began with a short wait in the “VIP” line outside the Rose Garden arena in Portland. With the necessary bracelets in place, we joined a select group of screaming girls for the Jonas Brothers soundcheck “party.” The boys sang 3 songs and sounded great – and it was really cool to experience soundcheck – how often does anyone get that kind of opportunity?
Afterwards, we went backstage for our meet and greet with Honor Society. The guys were as awesome and friendly as they had been the day before – they introduced themselves to each and every one of us and posed for pictures, including this one with all of the USA Pear staff that were in attendance – welcome to the USA Pear family, guys! (Notice the USA Pear logo on the backdrop – all that was missing was the red carpet!)
Following the photo ops and Honor Society trivia came the waiting around for the show to begin. Being a VIP is not always as glamorous as it seems! But the show to come was well worth the wait. And they even played the video for “Tastes Like PEARadise” on the jumbotron as we waited – I sang along at the top of my lungs!
Honor Society played an awesome set of 4 songs and totally rocked the Rose Garden – everyone was singing and dancing along, including yours truly! The guys even gave a USA Pears shoutout to the huge crowd – watch below and meet the guys of Honor Society as they introduce themselves.
The concert continued with Jordin Sparks and the Jonas Brothers. I had a blast, and I know I wasn’t the only one. Don’t forget that you can still enter to win the same opportunity – you don’t want to miss it, it’s truly an evening to remember!
