While they were up there walking around and welcoming everyone to their soundcheck, Candace threw a red men's thong that she had bought with a little note attached to it to Trevor up on stage. He picked it up and started to play with it. He put it over one of his legs and then stopped, saying "No no, can't do that. There are cameras around!" He draped it over his microphone stand for a while, and then moved it to Clyde's head. Then Ashley got hold of the thong, and since he wanted to be cool like Trevor, he went and put it completely over Tommy's head. Tommy was less than amused, so he took it off and threw it by the drums where it stayed until the end of soundcheck when Trevor picked it up and walked offstage, twirling it on his finger.
The boys performed four songs during soundcheck (These Are The Days, I Showed Her, The Joint, and Craving), and gave an encore with one fan requested song (All or Nothing). During The Joint, Trevor warned everyone they hadn't done this for a while, and to forgive them if they messed up, which they did. They seemed to keep running into each other! When they asked the fans what they wanted to hear, one of Trevor's best friends from back home in California suggested Shy Girl, and Trevor immediately told somebody to "get that guy outta here!" Jacob agreed and they all laughed. Someone wanted to hear All or Nothing, so after Dan disregarded Candace's suggestion of singing Hot in Here, he started singing in his normal voice at first, but the next time hed his mouth, he made his voice all
Overall, the soundcheck was fun to watch, but there was little one on one action between the guys and the fans. It was awesome to see them messing around on stage, but we hope that soundcheck parties don't replace the meet and greets. They may be rushed, but at least there's time to speak to each guy.

After dancing for Trevor (that's what Candace did to get the tickets and sound check passes!), and a rushed flight down to Florida from Ohio for Amanda, neither of us could wait for the O-events to begin! We lined up to get into soundcheck at 4:15 pm, but when the official start time of 5 pm rolled around we were still waiting (when is O-Town ever on time?), and it was 5:20 before we finally were able to go in. We went right up at the fence separating the floor from the stage and our spots were a little off center in the front row. From our viewpoint, we could see the side of the stage where the guys were talking and working out single dance steps before they all took the stage. After teasing everyone who could see them back there, they finally came out to the main stage to start the soundcheck.

deep and low to sing. He made everyone laugh, and he didn't sing normally again until the concert. During All or Nothing, Jacob was walking around the stage and by the time his part had rolled around, he had forgotten where to come in and everyone was looking at him waiting for him to sing. He laughed and said "I've been waiting around soooo long, I forgot to come in."
Theyd the show with Ashley, Dan, and Jacob on guitar for Suddenly. It was a great way to get the show started! They were in perfect harmony and it was so good to be seeing them again in a concert setting. They were having such a great time on stage. This time when they sang The Joint, the choreography was close to perfect. After performing a few other songs including I Showed Her, the new single, it was time for the solos.
