Carrie Underwood has sold out all 22 dates performed on her Blown Away Tour so far this year with each crowd totaling more than 10,000 fans each night. The tour broke records at the WFCU Centre in Windsor, ON, Canada as the fastest sell-out to date for the arena, as well as record-breaking attendance. The Blown Away Tour has played across the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland, and Australia, and will perform a total of 111 dates before wrapping on May 23 in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.
After performing in St. John, NB, Canada earlier this week, Carrie is taking a quick break from her tour to debut her new single, “See You Again,” on American Idol on April 4. She will then perform at the ACM Awards on Sunday where she is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Blown Away.
Carrie has headlined three major arena concert tours in her career so far, including 2008’s Carnival Ride Tour, 2010’s Play On Tour and 2012’s Blown Away Tour, each resulting in her being named the top-ranked country female touring artist of those years. In 2012, Carrie performed for over half a million fans on the first leg of the “Blown Away Tour.”
$1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of the Blown Away Tour goes to support Red Cross Disaster Relief. Each year, the American Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the United States. The ticket donation helps provide shelter, food and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. Proceeds from Canadian tour dates will go to the Canadian Red Cross.
