UNDER THE WEATHER
I have seen Martina in concert before and she is pitch perfect and powerful. I think she was recovering from a cold or flu because her voice was not up to par last night. You could tell when she was speaking to the crowd she sounded slightly hoarse. She even kept visiting her water and warm tea a lot. It was still a great evening listening to one of the greatest voices on earth!

A PURE ENTERTAINER
1st time we saw her in concert. Drove down from Vancouver Canada. Great band, great sound, well performed, smooth running concert. Encore was my favourite Pat Benatar song.. Great way to end the show! Overall, Martina can cone up to Vancouver BC anytime and perform. She definitely still has it!!!

SINGS WITH PASSION
If she was a beginner she would not get famous but I have such respect for her music and the music she has gave to us for years so yes she is very pitchy but she is an amazing person and put her best forward. I wouldn’t pay a lot to see it but I know she is respected and is loved by many. I really enjoyed it but wouldn’t pay to go again

A LIL BIZARRE?
My goodness. I know that she is beyond talented, but her voice just wasn’t there last nite. So strange. It’s hard to believe that she recorded a Christmas album? I kept telling my friend that she needed to keep her earpiece in her ear. She clearly was not hearing the musicians behind her. Too, her outfits were strange & out of date. They looked like Loretta Lynn’s old dresses? If so, I’d understand why she wore them. She came out in one pant outfit that was adorable & SO her ‘style. I agree with others....she was very ‘off her game’ last nite’. The two songs that were ‘hers’ & not holiday....was perfect & wonderful. Others were crazy pitchy. I bought the tickets for my for my friend for Christmas....fortunately, she is one who sees the positive in everything:) We had a fun nite:) I hope the glitches get figured out & I’d leave out the many dress changes. Thanks, Martina. I hope you feel better. You are beautiful:) Merry Christmas!

I was disappointed in Ms. McBride's pitch. She kept touching her ear so maybe she was trying to fix her ear piece. I'm not sure what the reason for her being out of key, but I have heard her sing on television numerous times and she sounded angelic. Last evening was disappointing to me because I spent a lot of money (for me) and it was a Christmas gift to my brother as we have wanted to see Martina McBride's Christmas show for years. If this was a technical error on the venue or artist's part, I hope you fix the problem for future concert goers.

DISAPPOINTED- EVERY SONG SHE SANG WAS OFF KEY - POOR SOUND?
I splurged on 2 tickets, $149 each -took my Mom as her Christmas gift. Front row, Orchestra. Great view and up close. Cushioned folding chairs with cup holder was strange - but comfortable enough, except large person next to me hogged armrest. Martina is beautiful - I've never seen her in concert and was so disappointed in her voice. It was obvious the sound was off and seemed she couldn't hear herself in the monitor as she frequently struggled with the ear piece. Hence, she was way off key for every single song. Cringe worthy at times. Such a shame because I'm listening to her now (online recording) and her voice is beautiful. Backup singers were spot on so not sure what happened. I don't understand why the problem couldn't be corrected during the intermission. Musicians were great and I liked the overall look of the show. But not worth $300 due to her poor voice quality. I wish I could see her again when able to actually perform at her peak. Wish I could get a refund.

PITCHY AND BORING
The entire show was a disappointment. She was pitchy throughout and kept adjusting her earpiece. Her own songs didn't sound like herself. If she had said she was fighting a cold and gave us some reason maybe it would have been more acceptable. Overall the content wasnt very good... her dresses were old-fashioned no music playing for the military personnel presented, her walking through the audience was ridiculous.... she was pretty lifeless on stage... very disappointing!!
