    Talking Carrie Underwood blows away the crowd at first concert of North American tour

    Carrie Underwood blows away the crowd at first concert of North American tour - National Carrie Underwood | Examiner.com


    Country superstar Carrie Underwood kicked off her 55-city tour in Manchester, N.H. last night. With Hunter Hayes as her tour opener, the "Good Girl" singer wowed the crowd with her lavish staging, bedazzled costumes, and mostly uptempo setlist.
    Hayes worked his charm with the crowd and built up excitement for the main event. His six-song set included such hits as "Wanted" and "Storm Warning." He also threw in a special treat, a medley of Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are," Keith Urban's "You're My Better Half" and Train's "Drive By." (See full setlist below.)

    After a brief intermission, Underwood blasted through the screen door of the onstage make-shift house with her No. 1 rocker "Good Girl." Her two-hour concert only took off from there, literally. She followed up her smash hit with such fist-pumping anthems as "Undo It," "Last Name," "Get Out of This Town" and "Cupid's Got a Shotgun," among many others. In total, she performed an impressive 23 songs. Of course, the concert would not be complete without its tender moments as she whipped out lovely renditions of "Temporary Home" and her signature ballad "Jesus Take the Wheel." And just when the show was winding down, she took the reigns on her power-pop crossover "Before He Cheats," with the crowd singing along.Throughout the evening, Underwood impressed with edgy costumes, mood lighting and colorful backdrops. The biggest spectacle of all, however, came when Underwood mounted a square platform that hoisted the singer high above the heads of the audience. Slowly but surely, she glided through the air and performed her summer-ready jam "One Way Ticket," as well as "Crazy Dreams," "Do You Think About Me" and "Nobody Ever Told You."
    In addition, Underwood surprised fans with an Aerosmithcover of "Sweet Emotion" and a duet with Hayes on "Leave Love Alone." She also peppered in a holographic duet with Brad Paisley on "Remind Me" (which was a real crowd pleasure) and left many concertgoers in awe. As an encore, the Checotah native performed an older album cut (from Carnival Ride) called "I Know You Won't" and brought the house down with her current Top 10 single "Blown Away" (tornado included).
    Check out the full setlist:

    Thank you. I based the review on what I saw on Twitter. I don't think I saw one bad thing said about Carrie.

    I loved looking at all your pics and I didn't watch the videos because I really am trying not to spoil it too much

    I am so glad that people loved her concert - makes my heart happy (as Carrie would say )
