The Red Hotts (Very Loudly) Rock The BJC Saturday Afternoon
The Red Hotts took to the stage at the BJC on Saturday afternoon to perform in front of a relatively packed crowd. THON spectators, who were energized ahead of the Pep Rally, danced in the stands as the band performed pop and rock classics.
To start the act, The Red Hotts launched into “Party In The USA” by Miley Cyrus, which the crowd dutifully sung along to. Next, the band performed a rendition of “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake followed by “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers and “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi. The atmosphere in the BJC during “Livin’ On A Prayer” was electric.
After the rock detour, The Red Hotts dished out “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston to get the BJC dancing again. To keep the pace going, the band performed “Your Love” by The Outfield, “All The Small Things” and “Please Tell Me Why” by blink-182, and “Raise Your Glass” by P!nk.

At this point in the performance, the Bryce Jordan Center hit capacity and the packed lower bowl was definitely getting more hype. Right on cue, the Red Hotts launced into “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes and the entire BJC chanted accordingly. Without a beat, the band started in on “Locked Out Of Heaven” by Bruno Mars followed by “Ride Wit Me” by Nelly, “Going Back to Cali” and “Juicy” by The Notorious B.I.G. The Red Hotts kept it up with the throwbacks with a rendition of “Umbrella” by Rihanna feat. Jay-Z and capped off the performance with “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” by Fall Out Boy. The volume on the speakers might have been a little loud, but the energy was just right.
