The DigiTour 2012

The DigiTour 2012 made their stop in Orlando this past weekend, bringing the most popular musicians of YouTube to the stage.

The night started off with The Key of Awesome, a trio who perform parodies of popular songs. The crowd seemed to enjoy their takes on hit artists like Owl City, Adele, and Maroon 5.

Second up was singer/songwriter Alex Goot. His piano style is reminiscent of performers like Gavin Degraw and The Fray, and his songs were both catchy and emotional.

After Alex Goot was Dave Days, a guitar slinging pop-punk artist who commanded the stage. He performed new and old songs, including some from his new EP “We’re Just Kids”. His set was my personal favorite. He was joined on drums by Ricky Ficarelli, one of the most popular drummers online.

NicePeter was the next act to perform on the DigiTour stage. His viral videos, “Epic Rap Battles of History”, are currently topping the YouTube charts. His impromptu style and clever lyrics kept the audience guessing. His performance stood out as one of the more entertaining, bringing crowd members on stage to perform raps.

Following NicePeter was Ricky Ficarelli’s own band, Wellington. Their pop rock sound is interesting, and they certainly bring more to the table than a solid drummer. His four piece band gels very well and played together perfectly.

Closing out the night were Booboo & Fivel, a pop group featuring the actor who plays Seth in the Twilight films, BooBoo Stewart. Their music is in the vein of 90’s pop, such as Brittany Spears and Backstreet Boys, right down to the backup dancers and flashy costumes.

Over all, The DigiTour is a night of fun and music that any YouTuber can enjoy. Fans of all acts sang along and laughed for hours. If you are a YouTube music enthusiast, be sure to check it out when it comes to your city!
