Seven-time Grammy winner and Pollstar's three-time top female country touring artist,Carrie Underwood, who just released her fifth studio album, Storyteller, will launch a new arena tour in 2016 to take her new music on the road. The Storyteller Tour - Stories in the Round, in association with award-winning cosmetics brand ALMAY, will kick off on January 30 in Jacksonville, Florida, playing 40 arenas across the U.S. and Canada.
"I can't wait to play new music from Storyteller for the fans," shares Underwood. "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."
The Storyteller Tour - Stories in the Round will be Underwood's first tour "in the round." With the stage in the middle of the arena floor, the 360-degree setting will allow fans on all sides of the arena to get a very intimate and unique concert experience. Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Usher, Michael Jackson) is the tour's Creative Director and Butch Allen (Metallica, The Eagles, Eric Church, No Doubt) is Production Designer.
