    Carrie Underwood opens the new Hard Rock on comeback weekend in Atlantic City - Philly

    he goes on about the venue...here's the Carrie parts( I eally liked the bolded part :-)

    There was a long snaking line to get in to Underwood’s show, which was advertised as being sold out. But even after everybody got in, there were plenty of empty seats, surely more than Underwood is accustomed to seeing.Not that the less than full house affected the 100 minute show. Underwood isn’t much for quiet moments or subtlety, but she’s a seasoned performer with a big voice and a confident stage presence.
    Thirteen years after her Idol victory, Underwood still projects the self-styled “All-American Girl” image she mapped out for herself on her 2008 hit of that same name. She’s one of the extremely few female artists who get regular play on bro heavy country radio playlists, and her spirited set had its share of songs that overtly signified an adherence to Christian beliefs, including “Jesus Take the Wheel” and the baptism conversion saga “Something in the Water.”

    But along with those testimonies of faith, Underwood also has a taste for melodramatic struggle and strife. All sorts of unsavory, untrustworthy dudes appear in her songs, most of which she co-writes.
    The best of the bunch on Friday was the tire-slashing headlight-smashing intensely satisfying revenge song “Before He Cheats.” But there was also an abusive husband who gots his just reward in “Church Bells,” an unhappy relationship that needs to end in “Undo It,” and a good for nothing “Cowboy Casanova,” who is “like a disease.”
    The band includes a banjo, fiddle and dobro, and you can hear the Oklahoma in Underwood’s voice. But while retaining a mainstream country identity, Underwood really operates as a full throated rock stylist, with a big back beat sound that can recall ‘70s country rockers like Marshall Tucker, a vocal delivery that leans toward Janis Joplin and a predilection for story songs that suggests a taste for Bobbie Gentry.
    Underwood has a tendency towards the too slick, but she’s grown steadily as an artist. She caught the audience by surprise by playing a wailing harmonica solo on “Choctaw County Affair” and announced that she’s making her debut as a producer of her own music with Cry Pretty, her new album due in September.
    The Celine Dion-worthy power ballad title song from the forthcoming worked well enough as an over- the-top anthem of feminist solidarity. But “The Champion,” which made it debut in the telecast before the Eagles Super Bowl victory in February, is an awkwardly over-determined attempt to engineer a music-and-sports crossover product, not aided by a guest rap from Ludacris. Still, Underwood declaration that she’s “a fighter like Rocky … knock me down, I get up again” was well suited for a comeback weekend in Atlantic City, when the struggling resort is attempting to get up off the canvas, one more time.

    I'm loving her set-list for this mini promotional tour she has been doing before the album comes out. Especially since once it is out she is going to be singing all the new songs. Bummer about the Hard Rock not having it together but I'm glad she was safe and her set was awesome!

    They've been advertising for some time that it was sold out and people on twitter were bemoaning the fact that she was so close and it sold out before they could get tickets. Really is Hard Rock's fault, or maybe it truly was sold out and everybody was too drunk to make it out of the casinos in time for the show. At least, in the videos, it looked as though the floor seats were full (probably people moving down from other sections).

    Yeah I read it was sold out. I was on the floor seat section and I noticed that a lot of people had an “Invited Guest” pass on. I think since it was opening weekend, the concert may have been a free perk for some people. Most of the people around me didn’t even seem like fans and were leaving throughout the show

    I sure hope we hear if Carrie gets her lost luggage back. I wonder if she was the only one in her group that had that happen to????

    I wouldn't necessarily blame Hard Rock (other than for the shaky security check, sure), but I thought the reviewer was too harsh. This was just like any typical casino show. A significant number of the tickets are comp'd, especially on the floor. Perhaps it was a really big number of tickets on this night (maybe even as much as 20% - 30% of them) since it was opening night and they wanted to go all out to display their new venue. Some of those people then eventually turn their tickets back in, and then the venue re-opens them for sale very late. It's surprising that a critic that supposedly reviews concerts for a living didn't recognize that.

    They really did go all out. Parking was free, and they were giving out free food samples even on the food court level (not just in the casino area). But it was evident that the real fans were largely sitting off the floor and in the higher rows and up. We had front row in the side section, and after we got in our seats we could've literally taken all of 3 steps forward to get a floor seat -- and the difference between those 3 steps was $350 vs. $150. Unless you're blowing your nose in money, it's really not worth it to pay an extra 200 bucks to take 3 steps forward. But if it was any other show, we would've been on the floor.

    Since the people on the floor generally drive the enthusiasm of the concert with a trickle down effect (if they stand, everyone else will stand. If they sit, everyone else will sit), that's why the crowd looked dull to the reviewer. Which is why casino shows typically suck as far as crowd enthusiasm goes.

    But after the show was over, thousands of people flooded out the exits. The real fans were there, they just were just packed into the upper rows.

    I don’t think he was too harsh,I think he was just being honest from his point of view.The whole ticket thing is probably something that he didn’t have time to research with what was going on & all.Its not fair to criticize him for something he didn’t know anything about.For a lot of the people that weren’t necessarily there to see Carrie,their enthusiasm may not as been high as her die hard fans that were truly there to see her as their level of excitement & enthusiasm would’ve been much higher & been more noticeable if the real fans had been closer to the stage.
