In addition to nearly 100 minutes of performance footage, the DVD will include exclusive bonus clips offering a behind-the-scenes look at the tour with interviews from Carrie and Raj Kapoor, the tour’s director behind the production and over-the-top effects throughout the Blown Away Tour. A selection of Carrie’s music videos will also be included.

The stage production for the tour included 3,000 square feet of video walls and 23,063 feet of cable to create the 172 different colors used in the show’s lighting. During each show, Carrie and her band flew 150 feet above the audience on a secondary stage that weighed 5,890 pounds. A total of 450 CO2 tanks and 222 Nitrogen tanks were used during the 112 shows to create a tornado effect at each performance.
