Review: Latest American Idol Live Tour has all the right stuff
WILKES-BARRE TWP. - 2011's version of the American Idol Live Tour express roared into town Sunday night and as usual, the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza was jammed and the amazing phenomena continued before a capacity crowd of 9,000 people.
Now that the voting is over and the butterflies of the tour experience should be worked out, how did the Idols do when the real judges looked on - the paying audience? Well, at Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, some people who have attended all of the tours thought this one was the best by far!
Whether it was the seeming innocence of Season 10's winner, 17-year-old Scott McCreery, or the beautiful allure of 22-year-old Pia Toscano, this version of "American Idol Live" was as entertaining as any that had preceded it. This group of 11 has it all
And isn't building anticipation and saving the best for the last American Idol's basic premise? So by the time 2011 winner Scott McCreery was scheduled to make an appearance, the screaming teen and pre-teen fans were building to a fever pitch to hear the purity of this 17-year-old belt out "Your Man," "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not?" and his new single "I Love You This Big." (Press deadline and a late start to the show prevented a review of his work.)
McCreery's boyish charm and classic country baritone make for an interesting combination and the steering of his artistic ship must be carefully chosen. He must have the right production and artistic direction to be taken seriously in the long haul. His single is lingering in the top 20 now and that's a good start.
Not everyone will always agree but let's face it, the American public did well voting on this group. Very well.
I have posted mainly what pertained to Scotty to read the complete review you can follow the link below.
