Sorry I'm a little late with this review.The show Saturday night was exceptionally great.All the elements of the show were perfect.Let me start with the venue. The Century Tel Center looked much bigger outside than it actually was inside and it appeared to me to be just right.CW had 2 days off before this show and it looked like the crew unloaded every speaker they had.The sound was great and LOUD!!!The extra rest showed with everyone singing,playing their instruments,and basically just fired up like it was the first show of the tour.Mairead was even more energetic and dazzaling than usual,if you can try to imagine that.At one point I didn't think she was going to stop spinning.The voices were sharp and powerful as Lisa,Chloe,and Lisa belted out some incredible notes.I think Lisa L. tried to keep up with Mairead during Dulaman when she starting spinning and it appeared she would not stop.Once again Amazing Grace blew everybody away and received the standing ovation it typically gets.Chloe gave us some good humor with her southern accent impersonation and telling how they lost their savings at the casinos.Mairead really let us have it with The Mason's Apron and the last of the show had everyone singing,clapping,stomping and screaming.I'm going to call this show the best one I've been to on this tour so far,even though there's no such a thing as a bad CW concert.My thanks to all the forum members and groupies who were there which made the night even more special.It was a wonderful place to be with many good people. The m&g was equally awesome with Chloe and Mairead with a large number of people attending.I was so happy to see them again especially since it had been a year since I saw Chloe.I promise to get some pics posted shortly. I wish I could relive that night again and again.

I was there in that M&G!!!  I loved the show, had the perfect seats.  The exact middle of the stage.  We bought them the second we got the notice so we had to have had the first ones considering where we were seated.   Can't wait to see them in Atlanta next month!!!

Thanks for the nice review.  Roy, I sat to your immediate left on the front row.  I received some nice CW buttons from you as did a lot of other people.  Thanks.  It was nice talking to you and all the other rabid fans.  I was truly in my element.  I posted a link to a video of this M&G.  Maybe you have already seen it.  It is under "SftH On Tour".  I hope to see you again at another CW concert in the future.

There is no Lambe like our Lil' Lambe.  Mairead Carlin is the real deal.
