Posted by Kristina Burton on 06/03/2013
She was Pollstar’s Top Female Country Touring Artist of 2012, and six-time GRAMMY® winner Carrie Underwood now brings the magic of her sold-out Blown Away Tour to DVD with the August 13 release of “The Blown Away Tour: LIVE”.
Filmed in concert this past March in Ontario, California, “The Blown Away Tour: LIVE” features more than twenty songs, with performances of a dozen of Carrie’s #1 singles, including such favorites as “Before He Cheats,” “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Two Black Cadillacs,” and the album title track that inspired her tour name, “Blown Away.”
Alongside nearly 100 minutes of performance footage will be exclusive bonus clips offering a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the tour, including interviews with Carrie and Raj Kapoor, the tour director responsible for the large production and effects that defined the remarkable visual elements of The Blown Away Tour. Among the additional content is a selection of music videos from Carrie’s Platinum-certified Blown Away album.
DVD audio for “The Blown Away Tour: LIVE” will be in Dolby® 5.1 and stereo.

Carrie’s remarkable Blown Away Tour launched in the spring of 2012 and continued through May 23, 2013, for a total of 112 dates in 110 cities, six countries, and three continents, playing for more than 1,000,000 fans and selling out every concert this year.
By the numbers, the state-of-the-art stage production for the Blown Away Tour included 575,424 individual LED lights in 3,000 square feet of video walls and an incredible 23,063 feet of cable to generate the 172 different colors used in the show’s lighting. As part of each show, Carrie and her band flew 150 feet above the audience at a speed of .3 feet per second on a secondary stage that weighed 5,890 pounds, while a total of 450 CO2 tanks and 222 Nitrogen tanks were used during the life of the tour to create the “Blown Away” tornado effect at each performance.
Carrie’s two previous headline tours, 2008’s Carnival Ride Tour and 2010’s Play On Tour, performed for a combined total of nearly 250 shows with 2.2 million fans in attendance. She wrapped 2008, 2010, and 2012 as the top female country touring artist.
