We are therefore perfectly placed to bear witness to the roaring success of this operation and confirm that it was an amazing gig! Things in the music world will clearly be defined as pre- and post- this Orange RockCorps concert from the Ting Tings.
In fact, with its slogan, this event was flying the flag of the Ting Tings’ explosive blend of pop/rock, as well as promoting sharing on social networks. After a few numbers to warm up the crowd and stoke up the atmosphere, Katie, the duo’s singer, grabbed her smartphone and asked the audience to start the challenge: to like, tweet, Instagram or check-in at the event on Foursquare using the #orangerockcorps hashtag.
So what happened? After 100 shares, the first surprise was revealed: a Chinese dragon left one mini-stage and paraded through the audience. After 300 shares, a group of dancing girls in white tutus started getting down to the Ting Tings’ groove. After 400 shares, the second mini-stage unveiled a group of singers in period costume. At 600 shares, 3 angels fell from the heavens to perform gravity-defying acrobatics. At 700 shares, a spaceman appeared in a cloud of smoke to accompany the Ting Tings on electric guitar. Finally, after 1000 shares, DJ Fly ended the concert with a live mix as the Ting Tings played their last few notes.
We hardly knew which way to turn! It was an amazing atmosphere, a fantastic party, a ground-breaking idea and an awesome concert! If you weren’t lucky enough to be there, don’t worry – we took loads of photos to show you everything. All you need to do is start the slideshow below!
