Carrie Underwood’s ‘Play On’ Tour Rocks One Million Fans
Carrie Underwood, like Bon Jovi, has seen a million faces and rocked 'em all … literally. The country music superstar and former 'American Idol' recently wrapped her 2010 headlining arena tour, dubbed the 'Play On' tour, and the numbers are staggering. Underwood played 108 shows across the US and Canada to over one million fans.
The tour clocked 35,000 miles via a convoy of 13 trucks and eight buses. The trek began in March and wrapped last month.
For 2010, Underwood was once again the top ranked female country touring artist, an honor she enjoyed in 2008, as well. The tour also received a nomination for Most Creative Stage Production for the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards, with winners to be announced on Feb. 5.
One of the standout features of the 'Play On' tour was the set design, fabricated by Raj Kappor, who also served as production designer for Michael Jackson's 'This Is It.' Additionally, costume designer Soyon An created unique, custom costumes for Underwood to sport on stage.
Congratulations to Underwood and her crew for a show-stopping 2010.
