    Review: Carrie Underwood underachieves in Oakland

    Carrie Underwood's Blown Away Tour doesn't deliver on its lofty promise.
    The trek's stop at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Monday included some moderately entertaining theatrics, a nice enough set list and a handful of vocal highlights. It was not, however, something that blew you away.
    Chalk it up as further proof that Underwood's live show remains the one glaring weakness to her game. She can crank out the hit singles and albums, win countless awards and charm TV audiences. Yet, she still can't figure out how to reach comparable heights in concert.
    This is troublesome. Blown Away is Underwood's third headlining jaunt -- following 2008's Carnival Ride and 2010-11's Play On tours -- and one would've hoped to have seen some noticeable signs of improvement over the years. If anything, however, she seems to be slipping in the wrong direction.

    He was being a real jerk on twitter the night of the show. He made some snarky comment about her dress and Carrie ever so politely let him know she didn't give a blank what he thought. (I'm working from memory but her response was something like 'Im sorry you didn't like it but I love my dresses')

    What??

    Carrie has improved in LEAPS and BOUNDS since her Idol days. This review is ridiculous. I can't fathom people who still see Carrie as that stiff farmgirl from Idol. Ugh.

    Ugh. I honestly wish Carrie didn't even waste her precious time writing a response to this fool. Carrie is so professional though and always has tact.

    from reading the comments on that article yesterday, apparently this isn't the first time he's written a bad review for Carrie, so he seems to be a Carrie hater

    And this is the negative stuff I stay away from. When I see a headline like that, I don't bother opening up the article.

    WOW! He really should have allowed someone else to have handled this assignment beings he was so against Carrie to begin with. He really has a hearing and visual problem to have all the complaints he did!! I sure wouldn't waste my time opening that article either!!

    Not going to give this guys hits on his site. He clearly went in there with an opinion and that is sometimes really hard to change that in people.

    I read it and 100% of the comments call him crazy.
    I also wrote him a personal email and gave him some food for thought (wink). Just about who he is as a person verses who Carrie is and what she was trying to accomplish that night.
    You cant change people but at least you can shed light on their ugliness.

    This guy and all the rest of the fishwrap writers around the country need to realize that NO artist is looking to make them happy, the only people who any artist is looking to make happy is the people who ACTUALLY paid money out of their own pocket to go.

    This.

    I'm not usually the guy to jump on the HATER! bandwagon (I actually like reviews that criticize Carrie)...This guy just DOESN'T seem to have put any effort into it...Not buying it.

    Exactly, he wasn't even good at picking at her.

    He reads like a bitter old queen who is still upset that Cher announced her retirement, AGAIN!!!!!!!!
