If you couldn’t get your hands on those Eras Tour tickets, Corks is bringing it to Niagara-on-the-Lake this weekend. 

On Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, Jessica Wilson is Taylor Swift and Angela Seeger is Pink for “Shake it Off! Pink & Swift,” two nights of hit music for everyone. 

Seeger has a long history of impersonations,  performing as Adele, Janis Joplin, Barbra Streisand and more while touring with Abbamania Canada, an ABBA tribute group, and the tribute band the British Legends.

Used to making some physical changes to get into character, Seeger told The Lake Report that Pink may be her most extreme transformation yet.

“Well, I don’t know if (my abs) will be ready for the show. So no promises,” she joked.

Seeger said that in the past few years, she has lost about 30 pounds simply to accommodate the physical aspect of her shows. But for Pink she’s going even further.

“I’m actually doing something I’ve never done before, which is getting my hair done because for that hair you cannot find a proper wig,” she said.

Wilson is all new to impersonations but has natural lookalike traits on her side. 

“For years and years and years people would always ask me, ‘Why don’t you do a Taylor Swift you sound just like her?’ and when I have my bangs on and my makeup just right I look exactly like her,” she said.

When she finally took the plunge to explore impersonations, organizer Ken Lamb was the person she knew could handle it.

“He had the idea to combine Taylor Swift and Pink and it has become something way bigger than I ever thought it could be,” she said. 

Lamb said the show will have a little bit for everyone, featuring hit songs and some deeper cuts. 

He also distributed five tickets to each of the NOTL schools so that superfan students can have the chance to attend.

“It’ll generate 15 kids and their parents who are die-hard Swift fans and probably die-hard Pink fans,” he said.

The Friday is sold out but some tickets for Saturday are still available. Contact Lamb at ktglamb@gmail.com to reserve your spot.
