Umbrella Academy’s Aidan Gallagher AKA Number Five held a mini-concert to perform his new singles live at 'The Hideout' in Toronto on August 10. Oh, and it also worked out as a mini Umbrella Academy reunion.
But first, let's rewind:
Of course, Aidan's loyal fans will know that when Aidan's not busy filming The Umbrella Academy, he has his hands full writing and producing his very own original songs.
And that's not all. Because we're definitely excited to report that Aidan has already written plenty of original songs.
Er, "Time", "For You", "Blue Neon", anyone? And we definitely can't forget the collaboration, "Miss You", with his best friend, Trinity Rose.
So when Aidan announced that he would be putting on a mini-concert on August 10, fans were a little more than excited. And those who were lucky enough to be living (relatively) near Toronto and were able to attend, were treated to a first listen to some of Aidan's new singles.
And not only did Aidan play his released songs, such as "For You" and "Miss You" live in an acoustic version, he also performed brand new original songs that had yet to be released!
...Who else have "Without You" and "I Love You" on repeat in their heads?
But don't worry.
Fun fact: The concert opened with Aidan and Trinity Rose performing a rendition of their song "Miss You". In a post by Trinity, she revealed that it had been 3 years since they both last performed “Miss You” live together.
Even fellow Umbrella Academy’s co-star Jordan Claire Robbins AKA Grace/Mom, praised her onscreen son, Aidan's “Without You” performance on Instagram.
I“Awesome job Aidan, you killed it!”
Aw! Who else thinks Jordan is a brilliant onscreen and offscreen mom?
Fingers crossed Aidan will put on more shows like this, and it actually seems as if he might since he revealed that he felt live shows were "much more personal". Although he does interact with fans during his livestreams, these live performances allow him to get much closer to the fans and on a more personal level.
And what was the sweetest thing that night?
Well, it was none other than Aidan's sweet interaction with his fans in the crowd!
Between songs, Aidan got to know some of his fans and to make their day even special, Aidan even dedicated some of his songs to them! And cue the excited screams from fans.
And we get them. Because who wouldn't want a song dedicated to them? And especially from your favourite singer.
I“This song’s dedicated to you, Maya.” - Aidan
Best. Thing. Ever.
Now, what's this about an Umbrella Academy's mini-reunion?!
Fellow The Umbrella Academy co-stars, T.J. McGibbon (Young Vanya) and Eden Cupid (Young Allison) attended the show, and Robert Sheehan (Klaus Hargreeves) reportedly showed up, too!
Prior to the concert, T.J. had responded to a tweet from a fan who asked if she was going to Aidan’s concert, and T.J. had confirmed that she would be there.
Anyway, according to T.J's Instagram post, they seemed to have had a blast there as they signed autographs and took pictures with fans!
I"had such an amazing night last night at @trinityroseofficialand @aidanrgallagher ‘s show! Thanks to those who came over to say hi! I loved meeting you all." - T.J. McGibbon (Young Vanya)
I"You made this night even better thank you so much for coming so happy we had so much time together!! Come visit LA soon😍💙 Love you so much🌼🌸🌺" - Trinity Rose (to T.J.'s post)
I"We loved meeting you guys ❤️❤️" - Eden Cupid (Young Allison)
So can we expect any more songs from Aidan?
Aidan is working on his next song, “Dream" and we can’t wait to find out what it's about, and in the meantime, fans are hoping that Aidan will release studio versions of his new songs.
Until then, The Umbrella Academy season 1 is available to stream on Netflix, and according to Screen Rant, The Umbrella Academy season 2 is expected to premiere after spring 2020 at the earliest.
