In Your Hands: Atlantic City, NJ June 15

Fri, Jun 15, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Atlantic City, somehow we knew you wouldn't disappoint! The signs, the Sugarpit, the energy – oh my! In a practically brand spanking new venue, Revel Ovation Hall, I think it's safe to say we left our hand prints there forever. Or did we just leave a 400 foot sign with hand prints? Yep, you heard it right! Not only did Atlantic City bring crazy spunk, but the signs may have been the most impressive we've seen yet!

A couple of signs specifically caught our attention. One sign requested "Irreplaceable", and the other Jennifer said was "so gigantron and awesome that they have to play it!" Note to future Sugarland concert goers: If you make your sign shiny with blinking lights it WILL get noticed!

One of the most anticipated turn of events for the night had to have been when J.Rome from Duets took to the stage, creating an enormous uproar across the arena. He even had signs for him in the audience! This was a hometown show for J.Rome which made the moments he and Jennifer shared on stage all the more magical! Their movements on stage were so in sync, and their overall presence was moving. They shared the song "Tonight" together and now it may never be the same!

Duets are kind of our thing, and it was no exception when the incredible Ayla from radio station WPUR was whisked on stage to sing "Baby Girl"! Her friends were among the ones holding signs in the Sugarpit, but their signs were all encouraging notes for their friend! What a fun moment that was for everyone!

Another song that got the crowd dancing and glowing was "Find the Beat Again". When we say that people were kickin' off their shoes and dancing, that's not just an expression! This song actually had our friends in the Sugarpit holding their shoes in the air while swinging, twirling, and jiving.

Jennifer fired up the crowd once more during the encore by putting on a pink sparkly cowboy hat and tipping it to the audience. Of course we chose none other than Bruce Springsteen's "Atlantic City" as the beginning to the encore. Wait, you all know that song?!

Thanks again for a night that will live in our hearts forever, Atlantic City! You are so precious to us!

    Such great news! I asked my husband on Saturday night if he thought you were pregnant. He said no, but I'm always right. Time to write Lullaby lyrics.

    You guys were awesome! You sang almost all of the songs I wanted to hear.I love "Just Might Make Me Believe!" Besides "Baby Girl," that's my favorite! Jennifer, your voice is beautiful! I also love that you said we're the ones with the accent! Cute! I hope someday to meet you! Congratulations on your very exciting news! When you came out on stage I said to my husband that you didn't look like you were feeling your 100% perfect self. Of course, he said I was crazy! When I saw you close up on the screen, I thought pregnancy! You must've had that glow! Then today my daughter tells me the news. I yelled, "I knew it!" Lol! Anyway, my best to you and your husband and may God Bless you and your new little one always! Hope to see you in concert again real soon! xoxo

    What a great show.. you guys sure do know how to entertain and make your audience feel like that are getting a once in a lifetime show.. When Jennifer sat down at the piano I thought "Oh here it comes.. Red Dirt Road".. no such luck, but I LOVED the different arrangement for Love..

    Just got back from my Atlantic City/Wildwood weekend. WILD! I was thrilled by the music! My poster was taken away from me and I thought it was too obnoxious, but the guy who took it said he was taking it to the stage for Jennifer to read.( it was a good smuggling job) And then my balloons floated through the sugarpit and spent the whole concert on stage. Gee, I would have loved to sit there and watch just one song from the stage. Thanks to the guy who posted all the pics, i have a really great pic with Jennifer and Kristian with my balloons. Guess thats about as close as i can get. See you in Delaware. Already Gone!

    Dear Sugarland,
    I just got home from my Father's Day Weekend with my girls in Atlantic City. The weekend started off with another awesome Sugarland show at the Revel's Ovation Hall! My daughter Megan was the lucky girl who was asked up on stage to sing with the band during "Everyday America"! It was sooooooooo awesome! Needless to say she didn't sleep that night and is still all a glow from the experience! We love Sugarland and for their kindness they showed my daughter! It was a night our family will never forget!! The new Revel Ovation Hall was awesome as well, hope to see them play there again!
