Additional Notes

The most anticipated concert tour on the road this spring launched last night as Carrie Underwood’s “Play On Tour” played to a sold-out crowd at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA with special guests Craig Morgan and Sons of Sylvia. The “Play On Tour,” hydrated by vitaminwater® and sponsored by PEDIGREE® Brand, is currently slated to run through June 20 in Saskatoon, SK at the Credit Union Centre.[8]

Tour Preparation

The tour was reportedly being rehearsed in Mobile, Alabama for two weeks behind locked and tightly sealed doors to keep all hints and clues about the tour completely unknown. Underwood was spotted with stage crew and 6 semi-trucks hauling stage props and pieces to the arena the tour was being rehearsed in. Underwood reportdely paid a near $500,000 for the stage preparation.[9] In interviews, Underwood stated that there will be a lot of "moving parts" on the stage. During the show, she swings from vines, gets transported and lifted across the arena audience while sitting in a large blue pickup truck, has interchangeable backgrounds for the stage backdrop, a lifting stage piece, and does a virtual duet with Randy Travis from what appears to be the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, performing her Grammy-Award winning collaboration "I Told You So".[10]
