    Review: Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes deliver punch

    Review: Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes deliver punch | The Salt Lake Tribune

    The set began with three massive video screens depicting Underwood running away from a twister in an post-apocalytic wasteland straight out of "The Walking Dead." The Oklahoman sought refuge in a house, and then a house rose at the back of the stage. Underwood, wearing a sparkly blue high-low dress, emerged from the house in a flash of bright primary colors, as if she was Glinda the Good Witch landing in Oz rather than Dorothy. With her clear soprano in fine form, Underwood greeted the crowd with "Good Girl" and gams that could inspire a porn addiction.

    The highlight of the show was when Underwood and three acoustic guitarists, on a small stage with faux-wood guardrails, were lofted up towards the rafters by four lit Japanese paper balloons. As the stage moved towards the other side of an arena, you couldn’t help but think it was a gimmick. But country music nowadays separates itself from other musical performances in a gleeful celebration of gimmickry, as each crooner tries to outdo one another. The show was full of spectacular lighting, a slick stage design, and even confetti near the mid-point of the concert.

    Good review. They didn't like Carrie's Blown AWay album when they reviewed it, so I was expecting a bad one. Glad it is good.

    This is the same guy that did the album review and he gave the album a B-.

    Ugh, a B-. In college that would have been a FAIL for me! I just hope (and from the sounds of it she did) she's won him over with her concert!

    How do they not like an album which has now gone platinum, the two singles released so far have gone
    platinum, and both have reached the top of the charts. They must think, "hmmm, maybe we're not very good judges of music, especially country music".

    How is a B- "not liking the album"?

    It's not like the person gave the album a D.

    I tweeted the Salt Lake Tribune (and all the other local media) about a month ago asking if they were going to be covering the Blown Away concert & they tweeted back that David would be reviewing it & they would have a photographer out there. When I saw his name I winced So I tweeted back a thanks & that I hoped David would try to be objective as he hasn't been in regards to Carrie/country music in the past. Of course they didn't respond to that tweet. I am happy with this review & I even positively commented on the review comments.

    David Burger "with Relish" is generally not pro country music or Carrie Underwood. A B- isn't that bad from him BUT in his reviews on the radio he just tends to be snooty and "above" country music. I bugs me that his personal bias is so evident when he is suppose to be an objective critic.

    Did you enjoy the concert? The crowd must be loud and really into it per Carrie's tweet.

    That is just another reason why what any reviewer has to say good or bad doesn't really mean anything, "personal biases" do work both ways and if a reviewer has a friendship with artist A, they could just as easily give artist A a glowing review because of their "personal bias" just like Davie Burger gives "snooty" reviews because he has a "personal bias".

    It was the best concert I have ever been too. The crowd was literally shaking the building. Hunter did a great job warming everyone up. I couldn't find an empty seat in the place & this time I would say that there were a lot more men there then last time (still probably 2/3 women to 1/3 guys). The only problem was that it was too short. She performed for almost 2 hours and it literally felt like minutes. AND my 2 favorite songs on BA (GIG & WAW) weren't performed which means they probably won't be singles. Oh well. The rest was amazing & the family loved it!

    Yep. Some things people are always going to have an opinion on (politics, religion, music) and in reality their opinion isn't right or wrong - it is just an opinion. I do hate it when the reviews get rude or down right lie.

    I'm beginning to think that they do that because they are beginning to realize their irrelevancy with the popularity of FB, twitter and such.
