Country music sensation and original American Idol star Carrie Underwood has announced 2016 North American arena dates billed as The Storyteller Tour. The shows are scheduled to kick off January 30 in Jacksonville, Florida, and travel to 40 arenas across the United States and Canada. The concerts will be in support of her fifth studio album, Storyteller, which was released on October 23, 2015.
Joining Carrie for these shows will be opening acts Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers. Halfway through the tour, Underwood will be heading across the Atlantic Ocean to play a few international Country To Country festivals in London, Glasgow, and Dublin, with other big country acts including Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, and Dwight Yoakam.
Making this tour a unique concert experience will be the "In The Round" stage setup in the middle of all the arenas, giving a 360-degree view of the stage. Helping to put this tour together will be Creative Director Barry Lather and Production Designer Butch Allen.
Carrie shared these thoughts about the upcoming tour on her official fan club website:
I can’t wait to play new music from Storyteller for the fans. I am so blessed to have this career and get to do to the things I do, but there is nothing like that moment when I get to step onto the stage to sing and all the fans are singing along with me.
$1 from each United States ticket will be contributed to the C.A.T.S. Foundation, who helps with general causes, needs, and services in the area of Checotah, Oklahoma (Carrie Underwood's hometown).
