Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Global superstar and one of country music’s biggest stars, Carrie Underwood has announced The Cry Pretty Tour UK, bringing her to Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and London this summer.
The dates come in support of last year’s album Cry Pretty, Underwood’s sixth full-length studio release.
She’ll be joined on all dates by special guests and biggest selling UK country act ever, The Shires
Emerged from her 2005 American Idol win to become a true global star, Carrie Underwood has a strong relationship with the UK. Instrumental in establishing Country To Country Festival, she has headlined the event twice including the inaugural event in 2013.
As well as taking to London’s O2, she has also performed on the stage at the iconic Royal Albert Hall to a sold out crowd.
Her charting power is equally as impressive, selling over 64 million records worldwide with 26 No.1 singles to her name. Cry Pretty, her latest album, hit No.1 on the stateside Billboard 200, securing its place as the biggest debut by a female in 2018.
Carrie Underwood now holds records as the only woman to reach the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with four country albums, and the first female country act to top the Billboard Artist 100 Chart.
The title-track also topped the download charts in 38 countries, and her critically acclaimed live shows have seen her awarded with countless accolades.
In 2018, Underwood celebrated a decade as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in a year that also saw her co-host the CMA Awards for the 11th time alongside Brad Paisley.
