Metro Station will be making a stop in Easton’s One Centre Square on their farewell tour on Thursday Oct. 12, bringing with them a “last opportunity to ‘Shake It,’” as tour manager McCanne Sanford said.

Lead guitarist and vocalist of the pop rock group Mason Musso said in an interview with The Lafayette that the band would love to meet Lafayette students when they visit Easton on their tenth anniversary tour.

“Hopefully [Lafayette students] come out and we get to hang with them,” he said.

Musso added that the band has seen fans ranging from pre-teen to late twenties on this tour, showing how far their music ranges in appeal.

“It’s cool hearing stories about how [fans] heard us when they were little, and then what’s interesting too is that we have [fans] anywhere from 13 to 27,” he said.

Musso said that the audiences love hearing the band’s biggest hit, 2007 single “Shake It,” which sold over two million singles in the U.S. Among their other popular songs are “Kelsey,” “Seventeen Forever” and “Control,” he added.

Kat Smith ’20 wrote in an email that she bought tickets “as soon as [she] found out about the show [in Easton], about a month in advance.”

“They were my favorite band in middle school and their music takes me back to that. Sometimes it’s nice to relive 5th grade and forget your problems for a bit,” she wrote.

Booking agent Tom Taylor, who booked the band at One Centre Square, pointed out that the tickets to the Easton show were $18 online, about half that of other venues the band will be performing at on tour. A longtime friend of the band members, Taylor said he is excited to be bringing them to Easton.

Alongside Musso in the band is lead singer and guitarist Trace Cyrus and drummer Spencer Steffan. Musso is the brother of Disney star Mitchell Musso and Cyrus is the brother of singer and former Disney star Miley Cyrus.
