CARRIE UNDERWOOD ANNOUNCES THE BLOWN AWAY TOUR
North American arena tour kicks off in September
On May 1, superstar Carrie Underwood announced during her appearance on Good Morning America that she will headline a North American arena tour this fall. The Blown Away Tour includes a stop at Ottawa’sScotiabank Place on Saturday, Dec. 8.
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 prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London on June 21, which sold out its show in 90 minutes. Additional international concert dates will be announced soon.
The North American tour dates will be presented and hydrated by vitaminwater®, sponsored by Olay and promoted by AEG Live. Special guest Hunter Hayes will open for Underwood.
“I can’t wait to get back out on the road and perform new music from my new album (Blown Away) for my fans,” says Underwood. “We have a lot of exciting things planned.”
Underwood is donating $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of The Blown Away Tour to support Red Cross disaster relief. Every year, the American Red Cross prepares for and responds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the United States. This donation will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food and emotional support for those in need during such crisis situations. 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 and attracted 2.2 million fans. She finished both years as the top-ranked female country touring artist.
Since releasing Some Hearts in 2005, Underwood has sold more than 14 million albums, with Some Hearts, 2007’s Carnival Ride and 2009’s Play On. She’s amassed 14 No. 1 singles, six of which she co-wrote, and became the first country artist in history and the only American Idol winner ever to achieve 10 No. 1 singles from their first two albums. Underwood currently leads the nominations for the upcoming CMT Music Awards with five. She is a five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Hunter Hayes, the multi-talented writer, musician, producer and performer, is the only country artist to play every instrument, write/co-write every song and co-produce his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. As the 2012 ACM New Artist of the Year nominee, Hunter has been touring and performing live for decades, most recently selling out venues across the U.S. and Canada on his Most Wanted headline tour. This multi-instrumentalist, who continues to garner praise from fans and critics alike, made his world-premiere national television debut on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and also performed with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and on Good Morning America. The Louisiana native has shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley and Hank Williams Jr., to name a few. His current Top 40 hit Wanted is quickly climbing the radio charts and has held the unprecedented No. 1 slot for three weeks in a row on GAC's Top 20 Countdown.
