KEITH URBAN AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD SET TO CO-HEADLINE “Love, Pain & the whole crazy Carnival Ride Tour”
24-City Tour To Launch On January 31st
Grammy Award winners Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood are set to hit the road together in ’08, a 24-city tour that combines the music of two of the music industry’s most powerful performers. “Love, Pain & the whole crazy Carnival Ride Tour,” a name that combines the titles of each artist’s most recent album; Keith’s double platinum #1 debuting Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing and Carrie’s recent #1 debut second album Carnival Ride,” will feature 12 #1 songs (7 for Urban and 5 from Underwood). Tickets are set to go on sale as of December 1st.
“I’m looking forward to hitting the road with Carrie, and to bringing our audiences together for what I think will be a magical night of sights, sounds, songs and solos,” said Urban.
“I can’t think of a better person to begin 2008 with than Keith,” shares Underwood. “He is an amazing entertainer and a well-respected musician, singer and songwriter.”
Urban, who will release Greatest Hits: 18 Kids on November 20th, has been on the road since April in support of his #1 album Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing. In that time, he’s performed shows on three continents, to packed houses, frantic crowds and widespread critical praise. Electrifying performances and world-class production combine with songs that have helped define a career; “Somebody Like You,” “Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me,” “Better Life,” “Days Go By,” “You’ll Think Of Me,” “Once In A Lifetime,” as well as his latest single “Everybody,” and more.
Underwood’s new album Carnival Ride recently debuted at #1 selling over half a million copies in its first week, immediately becoming the best-selling debut of any female artist in 2007. Earning the highest debut-week sales of any sophomore country album in over a decade, the album contains four Underwood co-penned songs including its first hit single, “So Small.”
