Grammy Award-winning superstar Carrie Underwood wrapped the first leg of “The Cry Pretty Tour 360” on June 23 in Lincoln, Nebraska, culminating with a run of seven straight sold-out shows. Of the final show on this leg, the Lincoln Journal Star declared: “There can’t be a better arena show on the road than the spectacle Carrie Underwood brought to Pinnacle Bank Arena. … (She) is the reigning queen of country.”
Underwood is also the current cover star and No. 1 reason of PEOPLE Magazine’s annual “100 Reasons to Love America” issue, on stands now (https://bit.ly/2KCrtYl).
“The Cry Pretty Tour 360” has consistently garnered both critical and fan acclaim for its innovative production and stage design. The show takes place in the middle of the arena floor to create an intimate view for all attendees. It boasts Underwood’s standout vocal performances, and is interactive, with one fan pulled up on stage at each performance.
As part of the tour’s ongoing contest, fans submit stories about what Underwood’s hit anthem, “The Champion,” means to them. They enter for a chance to join her on stage and perform the rap originated by Ludacris on the Platinum track.
The show utilizes 36 projectors and 19 video projection screens, with 15 stage elevators and more than 400 moving lights. Throughout the set, Underwood can be seen playing acoustic and electric guitar, piano and percussion at various times with her talented eight-piece band, who play 22 different types of instruments – 45 in total.
Underwood is now across the pond for her “The Cry Pretty Tour UK,” which will stop in Birmingham, England; Cardiff, Wales; Glasgow, Scotland; Manchester, England; and London’s Wembley Arena, with the UK’s best-selling country act of all time, The Shires, as special guest.
“The Cry Pretty Tour 360” will resume in North America on Sept. 10 in San Diego.
Underwood will perform in Buffalo on Sunday, Oct. 13. She will visit KeyBank Center alongside opening acts Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.
