Since school is out for the summer (happy dance anyone?), what’s the best way to celebrate the time off in the warm, sunny weather? Well, hitting up Big Time Rush’s Summer Break Tour doesn’t sound too shabby!

Thanks to Kool-Aid, Hollywire was given an exclusive look at the tour, including everything from their sound check, a meet-and-greet and, of course, one super energetic show in San Diego to kick off the summer season! And oh hey, guess what? We got a contest for you where you could get the same VIP treatment! 

Contest details are at the end of the post. But first, let's talk about our epic BTR journey....

Starting the adventure off with an intimate sound check, Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan gave acoustic performances of their hits “Windows Down” and “Music Sounds Better With You.” And a handful of dedicated Rushers were able to participate in their Q & A session that went along with it, where we found out some fun facts on the guys. FYI, James is in love with Breaking Bad. But aren't we all?

After, we got the chance to say hello to the BTR boys backstage and were introduced to their opening acts, Jackson Guthy and Olivia Somerlyn! And we can’t forget the fellas’ leading lady, Victoria Justice, who took the stage before BTR to perform 14 songs, including her new single “Gold” and her cover of Icona Pop’s “I Love It.” This girl seriously knows how to move and showed off her Zumba Fitness dance moves during her performance of “Shake” and yes, we may have joined in from our seats.

And at long last, Big Time Rush hit the stage and let’s just say they did not disapppoint. Showing off their hilarious personalities during “24/Seven” and “Get Up,” these guys certainly know how to put on one energetic show. Plus, they had a trampoline and confetti falling at the end, so points for that!

Now here’s the best part: You could win the chance to give the same experience as we did! You heard me!
