Carrie Underwood Blown Away Tour Breaks Records
Carrie Underwood‘s Blown Away tour has returned to play several sold-out arenas in North America. All 22 tour dates performed so far this year have been sell-outs, including Buffalo’s First Niagara Center, Hamilton, Ontario’s Copps Coliseum, the Spokane Arena in Washington state and Fresno, Calif.’s SaveMart Center, each with sold-out crowds of over 10,000 concertgoers.
The Blown Away trek broke records at Canada’s WFCU Centre in Windsor, Ont., as the fastest sell-out to date for the arena, as well as record-breaking attendance. The tour, which launched last June, has thrilled fans in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Australia and will have performed a total of 111 dates in less than a year before wrapping up on May 23 in Abbotsford, B.C., Canada.
Tonight (April 4), the country superstar will debut the fourth single, “See You Again,” off her platinum-selling album, Blown Away, on “American Idol.” On Sunday (April 7), Carrie will perform on the ACM Awards airing live from Las Vegas. The singer is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Blown Away.
In 2012, Carrie performed for over half a million fans on the first leg of the Blown Away tour, from which a donation of $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of the trek continues to support Red Cross disaster relief. Each year, the American Red Cross prepares for and responds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the U.S. This donation will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. Proceeds from Carrie’s Canadian concerts will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross.
