WORTH IT IN SPITE OF SHOW’S CHINTZY FEEL

Just saw the show tonight. The opening act was a karaoke style performance by 3 young guys. Nice voices, blended well but poor quality material that sounded alike for the most part. The Idol show features several standout performers including Caleb, Maddie, Gabbey, Cade (amazing guitar work). Disappointing was the feel that the tour was on a shoestring budget. There was no live band per se. There was an outstanding musician who played keyboards and guitar along with pre engineered? bass and drums and a mixture of the Idol contestants. Cade as noted played incredible guitar on most numbers. But overall the musical instrument sound was not crisp or fresh and the visual excitement of a band’s rhythm (drums and bass) section was badly missed. Kris Allen a previous winner was a pleasant surprise host and cast addon. He was excellent playing guitar and singing. Would recommend it for the enjoyment of talented young singers and Cade’s guitar playing and singing. He has subtle but mesmerizv

GOOD SINGING. ODD SONGS

The singing was goid for the most part but lthey did not sing popular songs or songs peiple would know. Not bad for the price. Caleb was great and had a great stage presence.

TERRIBLE SHOW

Really boring. No special effects or anything fun. Costume changes were a joke. Singing was nothing special. The opening act was cute. (Winners of boy band) We were 6 ppl and so bored we left 3/4 of the way through. Don’t know how we made it that long.
