One of contemporary country music’s most original and multi-faceted female artists, Gretchen Wilson went almost overnight from talented obscurity to phenomenon. In 2004, Gretchen’s debut single, “Redneck Woman,” became the first by a solo female singer to top the Billboard country singles chart in over two years, and reached #1 faster than any single in the previous decade. With her pure country style, Gretchen has secured her place in country music’s history with such hits as “Here for the Party,” “All Jacked Up,” and “Work Hard, Play Harder.”
Opening for Gretchen Wilson will be The Cadillac Black. Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray are three Nashville natives who describe their sound as somewhere between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock, and traditional Southern folk.
The opening band was very poor
The band who opened for Gretchen were horrible. The music was so loud that I could not understand one word they sang. I had to hold my hands over my ears to tone it down and they played for a long 45 minutes-Ugh! Many people sitting near us felt the same way. We also saw a group of 4 and 2 different couples leave the show during the time the opening band was still playing because they were horrible. They used bad language and talked about drinking...
Facilities are Outstanding! Prices - all around - are very reasonable. Sound, however, at this show was the pits. Could not understand singers the few times we could actually hear them. Hope this was a board man fault, and not theater acoustics.
Enjoyed Gretchen's show, but not the opening act.
Sound was too LOUD!
The opening act was terrible and they played for too long.
EXTREMELY LOUD pretty well sums it up.
The only things that I did not like were how some audience members were rude to the opening act, and it seemed reserved for a Gretchen Wilson concert. I think Gretchen belongs more in an outdoor setting.
To loud and you can't understand what they are singing
I love her music and own 4 or 5 of her CDs. She's very animated and friendly on stage. Very upbeat and full of energy.
HATED the first group. Amps were way too loud. Even with ear plugs (thanks to your gift shop :-) it was still way too loud.
If the opening band wasn't so bad this would have been a five star event
over priced for quality of entertainment. Opening act couldn't understand anything they were singing
opening act too long and too loud
music was way to loud,why does the band have to be that loud that you can barely here the singer. The group that opened the show were terrible I sat holding my ears shut the whole time they were on stage. This was the worst show I ever saw at AMT.
I think the balcony seating we had was very nice. The thing I did NOT like is the music was louder than the singer's voice. You could not hear what she was singing. I was at the Trace Adkins concert in Jully, same thing. Please do something about that. It is disappointing to pay money for tickets and not be able to hear the singer.
I thought that Gretchen Wilson was terrific. My only complaint was the openeing act-HORRIBLE!!! Not sure who hires the opening acts but this band should not be opening for a star as good as Gretchen Wilson. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!
The opening band (Cadilac Black) was a little loud. Was no prior information on this opening band.
Opening act was not very clear their sound was distorted.
Her band was so loud that I thought it was really hard to hear her clearly, but I was in the balcony.
The staff goes out o ftheir way to help you.
The opening band was not appropriate. They were fine opening for ZZ Top because I was at that show also but heard allot of complaints from others in the audience at the show in the bathroom etc.
We wish you served alcohol at your venue. We were also disappointed in the lack of enthusiasm by the audience members.
Did not like TCB did not seem appropriate as an opening act. Does she really need one? They were more like Heavy Metal.
The wrmup was loud and a bit sloppy. I felt the lead had been smoking something. It was over amped so you couldn't understand his words. Gretchen, whom I was looking forward for some relief, came out with the band being amped beyond pleasent sounds to the point where they sustained a single base note for 15 sec in a most unmusical manner and only to create noise. No senimentality only hard rock. I would not want to attend one of her shows again.
Hated the TCB!!! I came alone because $69.00 was a lot of money and to spend for two tickets would have been difficult.
I thought I was booking to see COUNTRY music... not 3 kids who were playing extremely LOUD, singing poorly words we could not understand and for an entire hour!!! It was horrible .. we had to leave our seats, only to be told to put in ear plugs!! I didn't pay $70. to put ear plugs in for an unknown band & then when Gretchen came on it was the same type of music! Her voice is lovely if you could hear it above the instruments. Her guitar players did play extremely well.. but certainly not country in my view point! AND obviously those around us, all kinds of people waiting in the lobby for the "opening band to STOP the noise" and I also witnessed a man holding his ears shut with his hands......now tha'ts bad. You should know what kind of music you booked & explain t hem on line much better!!
except the band that opened was not good. They were just a bunch of noise. Tickets were expensive!
Was not impressed with what Gretchen played during her concert. She made her bones as a country singer ya always a bit on the edge with more of a southern country vibe but her concert the other night turned into more of a head banging rock concert. Guess i should have known something was wrong when her warm up band hit the stage. yikesss were they bad!!! Hate to say this but in my and my wife's humble option her concert was not worth the $70 per seat ticket price and I am sure from what i saw from alot of the other fans that were seated around us they felt the same way.
She was very upbeat in interaction with the audience.
I was not expecting to listen to 1 hour of heavy metal prior to Gretchun Wilson. You couldn't understand or hear what they were saying. Gretchun Wilsons sound system was messed up so bad you couldn't even hear what she was singing. Before I come to another show, I would appreciate knowing what the pre show is going to be. I was very disappointed and upset with this show.
Iwould have given 4 or 5 stars had I been provided information about the opening act, The Cadillac Black.
My family has been blessed to see Gretchen live in concert a few times, and each one was worth the trip!! If you want an action packed,goodtiming pure redneck country girl performance with alot of energy, come see this future country music hall of famer.I promise you want go away disappointed!!
