Underwood sells out Hollywood Bowl
Monday, October 4, 2010
– Carrie Underwood brought her "Play On Tour" to Los Angeles over the weekend performing to a sold-out crowd of 17,000 fans Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl, her first concert at the venue.
"What an honor it is to stand on this stage," Underwood said during the show. "I have never had the honor of being here ever before in my life. I have only seen it on TV and in movies, so excuse me if I get a little emotional tonight. The wall of people in front of me is just spectacular. This is truly an unforgettable night - thank you so much."
Underwood and her band performed alongside the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Among the show highlights was Underwood's vocal delivery on the hymn How Great Thou Art, which brought the entire enthusiastic crowd to its feet delivering the loudest and longest standing ovation of her career, according to her publicist. Randy Travis made a surprise appearance as he joined Underwood for their hit duet I Told You So, and rock guitarist Orianthi played on the number one song Last Name. The concert concluded with an encore of fireworks choreographed to Underwood's hit Before He Cheats and show-closer Songs Like This.

The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
