New arena tour treks 43 US cities
On the heels of her triumphant headlining return to the iconic Stagecoach Festival, Carrie Underwood announces her new arena tour, The Denim & Rhinestones Tour with dates in fall 2022 and spring 2023. The new tour, promoted by AEG Presents, will kick off on October 15th in Greenville, SC, making stops in 43 US cities including New York’s Madison Square Garden, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, and LA’s Crypto.com Arena before concluding in Seattle, WA on March 17th. Underwood will be joined by special guest Jimmie Allen on all dates. After teasing fans about the impending announcement on social media and on last night’s episode of American Idol, Underwood made the official reveal this morning.
Allen will join the trek as his star continues to rise, following his first GRAMMY Award nomination for Best New Artist in 2022 and CMA and ACM Award wins for New Artist of the Year & New Male Artist of the Year, respectively, in 2021. His third album Tulip Drive will be released June 24th.
Tickets for the concerts go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, May 20th at 10 am local time. A limited number of exclusive VIP Packages will be available which include an amazing selection of tickets, Meet & Greets, custom merchandise, and much more.
“I’m thrilled to be hitting the road again with The Denim & Rhinestones Tour,” says Underwood. “I’m having such an amazing time with my Las Vegas residency and look forward to continuing that next year after the tour. I’m excited to bring the new music of Denim & Rhinestones to life on tour, as well as put new spins on familiar favorites. We’ve been working hard already preparing an amazing show, and I can’t wait to see everyone on the road!”
The all-new production will be directed by Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), and Nick Whitehouse/Fireplay (Justin Timberlake, Beyonce) is Production Designer.
Since early in her career, Underwood has designated a portion of ticket sales from her tours to support worthwhile charities and organizations. She continues that tradition by arranging for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for The Denim & Rhinestones Tour to be contributed to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which has been helping America’s heroes since 9/11 by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. The Foundation is also committed to eradicating veteran homelessness and aiding the victims of major US disasters.
Underwood will release her highly-anticipated album, Denim & Rhinestones, on June 10th via UMG Nashville. The album is her latest collaboration with David Garcia, with Garcia and Underwood having co-produced her critically-acclaimed 2018 release, Cry Pretty, which marked the first time Underwood produced her own album. Garcia and Underwood also co-produced Underwood’s 2021 GRAMMY Award-winning album of gospel hymns, My Savior. The lead single from the new upcoming album, “Ghost Story,” is currently climbing the charts and has garnered over 30 million global streams. The song’s cinematic music video, directed by acclaimed director and photographer Randee St. Nicholas, is available now.
Denim & Rhinestones signed CD box set and vinyl box sets are also available, which include an exclusive t-shirt, rhinestone pack, denim tote bag, and album slip mat in limited quantities. The vinyl edition will be available in July and a cassette version on August 5th.
2022 dates for Underwood’s ongoing Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency at the Resorts World Theatre continue through May 21st. The first artist to grace the largest and tallest stage in Las Vegas, Underwood opened the new 5,000-capacity, world-class theatre with a sold-out engagement in December 2021, followed by sold out runs in March and April 2022. 2023 dates for Reflection will be announced at a later date.
