Carrie Underwood will be hitting the road in no time, as her 43-city Denim & Rhinestones Tour is set to kick off on Oct. 15 in Greenville, SC. Underwood recently posted a black and white photo on her social media showcasing a wide view of rehearsals. The image shows her and her full band running through a song on the highly anticipated setlist.
“The gang’s all here. Are you ready?” She asked fans in her post, previewing the trek.
Fellow American Idol alum, Jimmie Allen will be joining the “Ghost Story” as direct support on this set of shows. In another post, she shared a photo of herself and Allen with the caption, “We’re just one month away from the #DenimAndRhinestonesTour! Do you have your denim and rhinestones ready, @jimmieallen? 👖💜💎 “
The “Down Home” singer sported a basic Montgomery Gentry T-shirt in the photo, but based on his response, it sounds like he’s got his on-theme wardrobe ready for the upcoming shows.
“We ready !! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 denim ✔️ rhinestones ✔️,” he wrote.
Allen then shared the same photo of him with Underwood and his caption confirmed that he is looking forward to all the glitz and glamour that will be included on the tour. He said, “Bring ya favorite shades cause This tour bout to Shine-NAY!! Denim & Rhinestones.”
Produced by AEG Presents, this dazzling tour will launch in October before hitting cities around the U.S. including New York, Nashville, Los Angeles. Underwood recently revealed a few details about what fans should expect, including a setlist that will feature new tracks, throwbacks and potentially, some covers.
“It’s going to be very spectacular, there will be some surprises as far as songs. If we can pull it off it’ll be a fun, cool moment,” she told host Lon Helton during an interview with Country Countdown USA. “I might cover a fun song. So there’s that. You should look up from time to time. I have a B stage, so I’ve got to get out there somehow. I may be dangerous.”
In addition to all the outfit changes she teased, the shows will also include an all-new, visually stunning production directed by Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), and Production Designer Nick Whitehouse/Fireplay (Justin Timberlake, Beyonce).
This next stint of shows follows Carrie Underwood’s first-ever residency, REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency, which was held at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas and concluded on May 21.
A portion of ticket sales from her Denim & Rhinestones tour will go towards charities and organizations. $1 from each ticket sold for The Denim & Rhinestones Tour will be donated to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Since 9/11, this nonprofit has worked towards helping fallen first responder families by providing mortgage-free homes to them and also smart houses for injured veterans.
The Denim & Rhinestones tour will kick things off on October 15 in Greenville, South Carolina and will continue until March 17 when she makes her last stop in Seattle, Washington. Click HERE to purchase tickets.
