The country superstar seemed to lack the energy of past shows but he certainly entertained his 15,000 fans.

To be a music star and to lack the "energy" to entertain a stadium is pathetic. This guy is blessed with talent yet disappoints. Hey sounds like the MN sports scene.

I am sure you mean "reality check" to refer to the platinum album of Scotty McCreery in 3 months? I hope this helps as a guide for your reality check. Wishing you clearer reviews!

I think you meant "sound check" not reality check, because in your follow-up comments you discussed Scotty possibly needing a sound engineer to work on a better balance between Scotty and his band. (I'm paraphrasing deliberately for clarity.) In the first two cities, no writer even suggested this issue...and none of the audience reports mentioned it. It could be there was a problem in St. Paul, or it could have been the fact that the audience was even louder and appreciative than when he was on in St. Paul than the first two stops on the tour.

I think Jon meant, Scotty is too young to drink yet was singing about drinking. Was all in fun. It is a great song. Jon must not be a country fan, because that combination last night of Brad, Scotty and Band Perry was simply awesome and very entertaining. Loved it all. We were in the second row, so can't comment on sound, it was plenty loud, sitting right by the speakers.

In two years Scotty will be a memory. 900.000 or more of those cd's must have been bought by 13-17 year old girls.

I'm guessing Mr. Bream did not see Scotty's set at all, and missed half of The Band Perry's performance, from this review and his later comments. Probably figured since the normal pattern for attendance at these shows is that the seats are pretty empty for the opener, and half full for the next act...who would know if his review was accurate or not? Problem was, the place packed at 7:30 -- and there were lots of cheering audience members for McCreery and TBP. Mr. Bream based his review of the two front-end acts on their set list -- and their appearances at the end of Brad's portion. Be sure to read the follow-up piece he did about Brad's show. BTW, I'm a 33 year old male who bought Scotty's CD.
