Underwood announces fall tour

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 – Carrie Underwood announced this morning during her appearance on Good Morning America to promote her new album, "Blown Away," out today, that she will launch a headline North American arena tour this fall, "The Blown Away Tour."

Special guest Hunter Hayes will open. Tickets will be available for "The Blown Away Tour" beginning Friday, May 11.

The tour will also include an international run of shows this summer sponsored by Olay, including her first-ever United Kingdom concert taking place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on June 21, which sold-out in 90 minutes.

"I can't wait to get back out on the road and perform new music from my new album for my fans," said Underwood. "We have a lot of exciting things planned."

Underwood will donate $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of "The Blown Away Tour" to support Red Cross disaster relief. Proceeds from her Canadian concerts will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross.

Underwood's two previous headline tours, 2008's "Carnival Ride Tour" and 2010's "Play On Tour," performed for a combined total of nearly 250 shows with 2.2 million fans in attendance, and she wrapped both years as the top-ranked female country touring artist.

CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies.
