    [Aug 12, 2012] Boots and Hearts Concert

    Yay, I got to create another official thread!

    Anyway, I'm gonna be at this concert...It's just going to be my 2nd Carrie concert ever!

    The schedule was just released for the show...I was initially worried that she'd have a short setlist and would barely be on stage, because some rather HUGE names are there. Yet, Carrie has got a LONG slot from 9:15-11:00 pm! That's almost two hours.

    Questions for you experienced people - Will they honour that slot? Will she really be on stage for almost 2 hours? And how many songs do you expect her to sing? The PO tour was roughly the same size and she squeezed in over 20 songs, so....Any chance it'll be in that range?

    I also noticed there's almost 45 minutes between the end of Lionel Richie's show and the start of Carrie's....Does that mean there will be lots of stage effects? Or is it just that way?

    I'll obviously post a detailed account of all that goes down

    Obviously, I have not been there, but I have been to two separate concerts in two different venues and states. In both, her set lists were varied and she sang for about 90 minutes straight. She doesn't talk asmuch as some entertainers and to me it always seems a little forced....like she knows it is expected but preferred not to do it. I am there for singing not chatter. In spite of her painful shyness, she admits she is in a bubble or zone when she sings as it is clear she has no such stage fright singing. Almost like Mel Tillis and his painful and extreme stuttering, yet how sweet is his singing voice. I envy you....I have to wait til Nov 3 to see her, but what a birthday gift that will be.....none better that I can imagine. All of my kids and grandkids are healthy and happy, so there is nothing in this world other than a Carrie concert to make an old girl a happy woman.

    Have a special time and please...photos and a review!

    Why would you be worried about Carrie getting enought stage time. I do believe Carrie is one of the 'headliners' of the show and her show sold out rather quickly (hope I'm not getting this mixed up with another concert of hers). You mean there's someone there bigger than Carrie?

    Anyway....have a great time, wish I was going.

    The 45 min between sets is needed to remove the opener's band stuff and the moving of Carrie's band stuff into place. It is normal.

    YES, 45 min is also needed for me to go to the restroom (toilet for international fans )

    Why is it necessary to keep all the gay crap on this fan site?

    Sorry, but your screen name is pretty gay...

    Oh, and for someone who's posted a whopping 12 times here, you sure don't have anything to say of importance when you DO post.

    Just sayin'!

    Before anyone says "Why do you always have to say something?", let me just inform everyone that if you haven't noticed, I'm the KING of having "something to say"!

    I guess you're mixing it up with some other concert...This show isn't sold out. And although Carrie is the biggest star on her night, there are quite a few big names.

    Well, Ok..but Carrie is the headliner and perhaps I should have said that she's as big a star as the other big stars. To me, however, she s the biggest star at this gig.

    1963 movie Nutty Professor staring Jerry Lewis. Alter ego buddy love. If I post more often I can be as prominent as you. Can't wait.

    I'm so jealous! I want to go so badly!

    When I saw Carrie last year at Capital Hoedown, her slot was from 9:00-11:00 as well (I think)... and she only played until 10:20ish (I think). I can't remember the exact times, but I was pretty disappointed that she had finished so early... At every outdoor concert I've been to, the artist/band has always played right until the 11:00 curfew or a bit after. Hopefully you'll have better luck!

    We might want her to perform longer, but typically, 90 minutes is a concert performance. That is a lot of singing,especially the way Carrie belts. We wouldn't want her straining her vocal chords to give us a looooooooong concert.

    90 minutes is about it for everyone but Keith Urban.
