Is Magcon about to make a comeback?
Last night, Vine stars Cameron Dallas and Carter Reynolds went on Twitter to encourage the Magcon family to get back together and take another show on the road. However, sadly, not everyone in the family agrees with the pair.
Their tweets pushed #BringBackMagcon to become the #1 trending topic in the U.S. for most of last night, with thousands of fans tweeting their support for the return of the original Magcon lineup. It didn’t take long for the other Magcon boys to break their silence, and most of them made it clear that they don’t want to be part of Magcon ever again.
Taylor Caniff said he didn’t want to be a part of it because he has his own tour. But Cameron tweeted a screenshot of this private messages with Taylor, and it seems like he’s might be coming around to the idea.
However, the others seem to be set in their ways. Cameron specifically called out Matt Espinosa and Nash Grier, saying it’ll be hard to get them to re-join:
And he was right. Less than an hour later, both Matt and Nash wrote cryptic tweets suggesting that they have no interest in being a part of another Magcon tour:
Sadly, it looks like Magcon will never return to its former glory.
Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas , Shawn Mendes, Jack Gilinsky, Jack Johnson, Aaron Carpenter, Taylor Caniff, Matthew Espinosa, and Carter Reynolds were the original nine headliners of the Meet And Greet Convention (MAGCon), a social tour that marked a huge change in how fans interact with their favorite internet celebrities, and provided a platform for these stars of social media to effectively collaborate with each other in real life while growing their audiences together at the same time. Hayes Grier and Jacob Whitesides also joined the tour at a later date.
At first, everything worked perfectly for both the organizers of the tour and the headliners, with thousands of young fans (mostly girls) paying between $20-$175 to meet their favorite internet celebrities. But it seems the organizers wanted more from the headliners, and the headliners wanted more from the organizers, and no one could come to an agreement so most of the boys ended up leaving.
“We’ve been back and forth with the head of organization at Magcon for months now, but we couldn’t work out a deal that we thought was best for both of us,” Nash explained in a video explaining the split in 2014. He also explained that he has aspirations to be an actor, and doesn’t want to do social tours for much longer.
The tour continues on to this day with smaller stars like The Dolan Twins, Reed Deming, and former O2L member Sam Pottorff, but it never reached the heights it did when the original line up was a part of it.
The tour effectively made the original lineup famous, and both Cameron Dallas and Carter Reynolds made it clear they’re not ready to let it go just yet.
