Cody Simpsons’ Acoustic Sessions Tour: “Wish U Were Here”

February 5, 2014


Cody Simpson is certainly not a newcomer when it comes to the music scene. With hits like: iYiYi”, “On My Mind”, and “Pretty Brown Eyes” he has made quite the name for himself.  Not to mention opening up for the Biebs himself on the “Believe Tour”.


But the Australian native has been making headlines of his own lately. With projects such as: The Acoustic Sessions Tour, albums; “Surfers Paradise” and “The Acoustic Sessions EP”, and his hit song “La Da Dee”appearing in the children’s film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.”


I had the pleasure of attending one of the “Acoustic Sessions” shows, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Now don’t get me wrong, I was expecting an amazing show based on what I had seen on the Believe Tour and his other performances. But this show was on a whole new level.


Cody’s Acoustic Sessions tour, which was the result of his album The Acoustic Sessions EP was something like an intimate connection with his fans. There were seventeen shows, which took place throughout the US and Canada, just Cody and two band mates, accompanied with their instruments. All of the venues were standing room only, adding to the ambiance of the show.


Everything about this show provided more of a chill and relaxed vibe, rather than the loud, craziness of your typical concert. There was still plenty of energy, but there was also a completely different feel to the show. The acoustic set, standing room, even down to the special opening act “Plug in Stereo” who played an acoustic set as well.

Showing us just how far he has come, Cody featured songs off all four of his albums: Surfers Paradise, Paradise, Coast to Coast, and 4U-EP. Cody also had a nice surprise and covered a variety of artists such as Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder.

This is arguably one of the best shows that I have been to, hands down one of my favorites. I loved the closeness I felt with Cody, his talent and love for fans really came through during this set. From frequently stopping between every song, or every other song to let us know how much he loved us. To letting us pick the next song he sang, really let everyone there know he really loved performing for us.

With this show recently coming to an end, this can only mean one thing for Cody; more work in the studio. He took to Twitter saying “So much peace and love. Now I gotta get back to LA to create some more music. Lookin forward to getting back on the road soon. Love you.”  I am excited to see what will come in the future with Cody. I can definitely say that I will be in attendance at his next show.
