The Joy Of A Great Concert Review

Martina McBride (click to read her recap of her family Christmas at home) wrapped up her Holiday show schedule in Chicago on 12/22 and Tribune writer Chrissie Dickinson liked what she saw:

Like Bing Crosby and Andy Williams before her, Martina McBride understands what it takes to deliver a Christmas show. You have to have an authentic touch. The mood must be warm as a fireplace. Most of all, you have to create the elusive magic of the holiday.

McBride delivered on all counts Friday night at the Chicago Theatre, the final stop on her "Joy of Christmas" tour.

The members of her stellar 12-piece co-ed band were clad in tuxes and evening gowns. The stage was decked out with evergreens frosted in white. The singer herself went through a handful of wardrobe changes including a snappy red satin dress, glitter pants and floor-length gowns.
