On February 9, The Chippendales performed two shows at The Paramount in Huntington on Long Island. This show was a part of their 2019 "Let's Misbehave" Tour. I reviewed their first performance at the venue. This year's line-up of Chippendales performers included Shiva Paul, Mozart, Tory George, Chris Mike, as well as Lenny Trae, Okewa Garrett, and Adam Barabas.

Musical and dance numbers

The Chippendales are regarded as the top male revue in the country. During their performance, The Chippendales interacted well with the ladies in the audience, and their choreography was superb and spot-on throughout the evening. They danced to such songs as "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" by country duo Big & Rich, as well as Ed Sheeran's "Perfect," and even "Despacito."

The Chippendales also ended with a boy band medley that included classic hits by such multi-platinum pop groups as the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC.

They performed "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," "Incomplete" and "I Want It That Way" from the Backstreet Boys' catalog and "Bye Bye Bye" by NSYNC, where they left The Paramount audience yearning for more. They earned two giant thumbs up for a job well done.

Shiva Paul interview

Prior to the show, performer Shiva Paul sat down and chatted with me about his plans for 2019. "It's good to be back. It's my fourth time here. I like this venue. It's always a good crowd, good energy, and a good establishment," he said. "I try to grow and shed new skin each year. That's my goal for every year."

Paul shared that he would give the following advice to his 18-year-old self: "Calm down and pay attention to things around you.

Life is not yet figured out and it won't be figured out for a long time. Life is a process." For Paul, fitness has become a lifestyle, not just from a physical standpoint, but mentally as well. "Any decision you make will always be for your physical and mental betterment," he explained.

He defined the word success as "becoming the best version of yourself," as well as "reaching your full potential." "Everybody has a different definition of the word success," he said, and he went on to express his gratitude to his dedicated fans. "Stay with me, watch me grow and watch me develop. I always appreciate the love and the support that I get from everybody. It shows you that you are doing something good for people and yourself.

People admire the journey that you are on and it reassures you that you are on the right path," he concluded.
