Prepare Yourselves for Carrie Underwood Live @K-Rock Centre This March


Carrie Underwood will continue her critically acclaimed “Blown Away Tour” in 2013 with a stop in Kingston, Ontario on March 30th, 2013!

The donation of $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of “The Blown Away Tour” will continue in 2013 to support Red Cross disaster relief. Every year, the American Red Cross prepares for and responds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the United States. 

This donation will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. Proceeds from her Canadian concerts will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross. 

 Carrie’s performance and the spectacular show production are being heralded by media...

“Carrie’s always been great, but now she’s in a league of her own,” shared WTHT on-air personality Cory Garrison. “It was more than a show, it was an experience.” The Hartford Courant reviewer stated, “Underwood’s stage show was one of the most spectacular in recent memory." 
AOL’s expressed, "Leaving fans and music industry pals thoroughly awed by the perfect storm of visuals, special effects and, of course, Carrie's amazing vocals," while said, "Start to finish, it will be tough for any country artist to top what Underwood is delivering on this tour." 
When Carrie performed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles earlier this month the LA Times reported, "A spectacular production…full of dazzling costume changes, creative staging and megawatts of musical wattage." 

 Later this week, Carrie and Brad Paisley will co-host the The 46th Annual CMA Awards for the fifth time, where Carrie is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. The CMA’s will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, November 1, at 8 PM ET, on ABC.
