Canadian pop-rock band Marianas Trench kicked off their Face The Music Tour last Saturday to an enthusiastic crowd at Fredericton's Aitken Centre. The show began with smoke filling the stage while videos of the band projected on several large screens. Lead singer Josh Ramsay flew out over the crowd on wires while he belted out the first song of the night and set a dramatic and over the top tone for the rest of the show.

The following high energy set was filled with the band using every inch of the stage (including two catwalks) to interact and hype up the crowd as much as they could. Besides showing off their musical abilities, Mike Ayley (bassist and vocals), Ian Casselman (drummer and vocals) and Matt Webb (guitar and vocals) also showed off their other, um, assets by yanking off their tearaway pants and revealing their tighty whities. After this, Ramsay rose from the stage in front a screen displaying the iconic living set of "Risky Business" in a white dress shirt and briefs.

After holding a contest that asked fans to send videos of themselves singing one of the band's songs, the lucky group of fans that won had their chance to rock out with the band on stage. The winning group of young women, called Chain Reaction, are students at Sackville's Tantramar Regional High School and sang back-up on "Fallout" and "Stutter".

The tour was a great representation of Marianas Trench's work. The band clearly isn't afraid to have fun but doesn't mess around when it comes to their music. Their musicianship and love for their fans made this a show you definitely want to see if it comes to your town.

Check out the slideshow to see all the fun.
