“The Cry Pretty Tour 360” with special guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway JuneOct 31 , 2019 Little Caesars Arena
Seven-time Grammy® winner and Pollstar’s three-time top female country touring artist, Carrie Underwood, will launch a new arena tour, “The Cry Pretty Tour 360”, in Spring 2019. Sponsored by CALIA and promoted by AEG Presents, the new tour will play 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada to include a performance at Little Caesars Arena on Thursday, October 31 at 7 p.m. She will be joined on tour by special guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.
Following her successful “The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round,” the new production will feature a brand-new stage in the middle of the arena floor, creating a unique 360-degree setting to allow fans on all sides of the arena an intimate view of the concert. Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson) is the tour’s Creative Director and Nick Whitehouse/Fireplay (Justin Timberlake, Beyonce) is Production Designer.
“I love performing in the round,” says Underwood. “It’s so much fun for me and the band to play in every direction and creates a much more intimate and immersive experience for the audience, even in a larger arena setting. It’s been exciting to introduce audiences to Cry Pretty and I can’t wait to bring the new album to life on this tour, along with all of the songs we love to play live. I’m thrilled to be going out with an amazing line-up – Maddie & Tae and Runaway June are incredible artists that are going to bring even more electricity to our shows.”
Underwood has arranged for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for “The Cry Pretty Tour 360” to be contributed to Danita’s Children, which provides a safe haven for abandoned and vulnerable children in Haiti, while encouraging families to stay together through their education and malnutrition programs.
Carrie was recognized by Pollstar as the top female country touring artist for each of her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, 2012 and for 2016’s “The Storyteller Tour - Stories in the Round.” Her earlier “Blown Away Tour” played 112 shows in 110 cities across three continents and six countries, including sold-out shows at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall and two nights at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia. She topped Billboard’s Top 25 Tours of 2016 as the leading female country artist and was the leading female artist on Country Aircheck’s top country radio performers list for her success in both 2015 and 2016. Her five studio albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, Blown Away and Storyteller – are certified Platinum or multi-Platinum, each winning an American Music Award as Favorite Country Album and tallying an incredible 40 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Carrie is the first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year. In addition to seven Grammy® Awards, she has won six CMA Awards, 17 CMT Music Awards, 12 American Music Awards and numerous other awards and honors. She recently took home her 14th career ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year for “The Fighter,” her collaboration with Keith Urban.
