    Carrie Underwood, along with a special guest appearence by Hunter Hayes, performed in the First Niagara Center on Tuesday to a crowd of over 20,000 fans as a part of her Blown Away Tour.



    There was a dress code in Buffalo on Tuesday night: Cowboy boots, white lace dresses, cowboy hats resting on top of bouncy, curly hair and lots of denim.


    Carrie Underwood performed with special guest star Hunter Hayes at the First Niagara Center on Tuesday to a crowd of around 20,000 country music fans on her Blown Away Tour.


    Hayes started the show on a low note by informing the audience he had a sore throat and would need its help to sing his chart topping hits. That wasn’t a problem for the audience, as he started his set with “Somebody’s Heartbreak” and held the microphone out to the masses.
    The audience let out a resounding cheer as Hayes sat down at the piano and played the first few notes of “Wanted,” his current hit single. The voices of thousands of fans came together in unison and sang the chart-topping hit’s chorus as Hayes played along.
    Hayes concluded his set with a twang as he sang Storm Warning,”and despite the issues he had, Hayes gave the song his all and thanked the fans “for being too good to him.”


    If anything, at the end of his short set, the fans had more of a sore throat than Hayes.


    “I won’t be able to talk for a day,” said Holly Loveless, a junior at Utica College, who attended the concert with her boyfriend.
    The country music fan waited anxiously, along with the rest of the stadium, for 45 minutes until Carrie Underwood started her performance.
    It has been 10 months since Underwood’s latest album, Blown Away, was released in May 2012 and fans couldn’t wait to hear her sing their favorite songs.


    When the lights went out, Underwood enthusiasts screamed as three movable screens appeared on stage. The screens showed the six-time Grammy winner strutting through desolate farmland and then running from a tornado accompanied by her five-person band.

    The reviewer was right on with what I saw and felt from the audience at the concert- people whooping and seeming to have a great time - it's nice to find out whose cowboy hat she was signing at the end - how sweet of Carrie to do that

    Thanks for finding the review Tee!

    Don't get too excited as that may not be right. Maybe this venue holds up to 20,000 ppl but I doubt Carrie played for this many. Remember that Carrie's stage is big so that knocks out 2,000 ppl, plus the rows behind the stage and side is not released. Therefore, I think it will be between 8-10k attendees.

    Also this writer used a pic from the Play On tour (lazy much...lol), therefore, I think the writer just used 20,000 as a reference bc this venue holds this many ppl. (Of course, I hope I am wrong).
