The New York Mets couldn’t have picked a better night for the final show of their concert series. It was a perfect late September night that kicked off with hundreds of young dance and cheer squads from the tri-state area doing a fun routine to songs by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande. Dance Cheer Night meant there were significantly more teenage girls than usual in the stadium – oh, and the fact that Austin Mahone was performing after the game! Between the cheerleaders and the fangirls in attendance, it’s safe to say that it was one of the loudest crowds Citi Field has ever seen (especially whenever Austin Mahone showed up on the big screen).
After the game (which the Mets ended up winning 2-1 in the 9th!), a stage was quickly rolled out behind 2nd base for the concert, which started just after 10:30pm. Austin performed a 12-song set, including an acoustic section that showcased his vocals and guitar playing. And we all know he can dance! The one man boy band showed off his smooth choreography to hits like “Banga Banga” and his latest, “Secret,” which sounds like a 2014 update of a 90s Backstreet Boys song (and is the Secret Fangirls theme song). Austin even invited 1 lucky fan on stage to serenade during “U.” We always knew he was a great dancer, but this was the first time we got to see his choreography up close, and we were majorly impressed.
Austin Mahone Mets Concert Series Set List
1. “Banga Banga”

We can’t wait to see who the Mets will have in the lineup for the 2015 concert series! Besides Austin, recent shows have included Boyz II Men and Third Eye Blind. It’s a fun way to see your favorite artist, and to spend a perfect summer evening with some baseball, music and BBQ (or Shake Shack, or a burger…the food options at Citi Field are endless).

When we first heard Austin Mahone’s “Say Something” and
“Say You’re Just A Friend”, we instantly loved his classic pop sound (We’ve never been happier that we actually clicked on an Amazon music suggestion.) But it was his hit single from last summer, “What About Love,” with its 90s sound and the video’s sweet choreography, that earned him the nickname “the one man boy band.”
Austin Mahone succeeds where others have yet to venture – filling the 90s boy band void in our hearts! (We’re talking real, dancing boy bands)! His debut EP, “The Secret,” out this week, draws inspiration from and gives more than a few nods to 90s boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys. Songs like “Secret”, “Next To You”, and “Til I Find You” all have those classic throwback elements from the blaring bass in the chorus to the breakdowns that are just begging for a slow lean and pop, *NSYNC style. If you have Backstreet Boys’ “The Call” stuck in your head after hearing Austin’s EP, we did too. The (kind of) title track, “Secret” shows off the flashy bass line and synths that sound like an early Backstreet/*NSYNC track that never made the album cut – like that weird *NSYNC song that only got released in Germany.
Austin’s slow jams whole-heartedly channel the likes of 98 Degrees and O-Town (who are reuniting by the way). While every album needs a good love song, some of these might fall short of a 98 Degrees “Because Of You”. Those are big shoes to fill but Mahone took a chance and reached for it, and we have to give him major brownie points for trying!

Fresh off his first headlining tour, Austin Mahone premiered the music video for his latest single “MMM Yeah,” featuring Pitbull. We’re a little bummed that there is less choreography than usual (because the kid can DANCE!) but it’s a great video nonetheless. Check it out below!
And does the video set remind anyone else of *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye?” Or is that just our uncanny ability to relate anything to *NSYNC? We’re calling it another Mahone boy band throwback either way. Keep it up!
