OK! Exclusive: Read Week 5 of Pauly D's Tour Diaries
It’s been a crazy week for Pauly D, but we couldn’t be happier for our favorite DJ and his baby girl! The last week of touring was also a little nuts for Pauly. Read on for the conclusion of his “In a World Like This” tour with Backstreet Boys and Jesse McCartney!
September 1 – Cedar Park, TX
Jesse wasn’t on this tour date, or any of the Texas ones actually, so I went on right before Backstreet Boys. It was awesome to play at a different time slot to see how the crowd changed as it got closer to Backstreet Boys performing. This date was especially great because it was right outside Austin, which is a huge college town and a lot of those kids came out. They had so much energy, it was insane.
September 4 – Universal City, CA
Los Angeles was dope! My managers all came out to this show, and it was really great for them to see the show and see the crowd. I always love to have members of my team at my shows; it means a lot to see their support. That night Kathy Griffin came to the show, and she was hysterical. She hung out backstage and was just cracking joke after joke. I could not stop laughing.
September 7 – Las Vegas, NV
Vegas!! Yeahhhhh buddy!!!! I bought a house out in Vegas recently and I hadn’t seen it since I started the tour, so I had about an hour to spare to check on the house, do some laundry and of course grab some more hair spray. I almost ran out! Vegas crowds are like no other, so I knew tonight’s show would be epic.
September 8 – Concord, CA
This gig was bittersweet for sure. At the end of my set, I normally hop right off stage but I took this time tonight to thank Backstreet Boys and Jesse for making me feel so welcome on this tour. Backstreet Boys gave me an amazing opportunity and I really just wanted to take a moment to publicly thank them. After I was walking to my bus and Backstreet Boys were taking pictures backstage, they ran over to thank me and say goodbye and we snapped one more picture together.
