    No dates in Oklahoma? That’s really odd.

  • primeminister

    I hope this means Sons of Sylvia will have their album out by then!

  • windmills

    Thanks MJ for giving this its own post!

    No dates in Oklahoma? That’s really odd.

    This is just the 1st leg of the tour and there are lots of markets where she’s done really well (including her home state) that aren’t covered. I’m sure she’ll have at least 1 Oklahoma date, a Nashville date, and more in the next leg of the tour. She didn’t hit Oklahoma or Tennessee until the 2nd leg of her CR tour either.

    I’m excited about the tour! With those opening acts though it’s going to be Carrie’s name alone that sells tickets. Craig Morgan’s been around and he’s still getting radio hits but I don’t know how much of a loyal fanbase he has. It’s awesome of Carrie to give Sons Of Sylvia another chance and at least that means we’ll get to see What Can I Say performed on tour!

    MJ, do you know when tickets go on sale? I think I’m going to try to get tickets as a Christmas present for my mom. Of course, since I’ll go to the concert with her, it’s sort of a present for me, too! LOL

  • Mtlfan

    what? no date in either Toronto or Montreal?
    ..maybe later

    i didn’t buy her albums yet but I’d like to see her on tour!

  • windmills

    eliza: I’m not MJ but according to the press release here tickets go on sale starting next Friday December 18th. I’d guess the fan club presales might be earlier.

  • canadiandcfan

    i wanna see her in Montreal too!

  • onlythegood16

    Oh, man, three dates within an hour of me? That’s bad news.

  • windmills

    Mtlfan and canadiandcfan Maybe Carrie didn’t want to play in the cities of Ottawa’s division rivals while the hockey season was going on!

    I’m just kidding LOL. I think.

  • Sunshinegirl

    I hope they add Kansas City or Omaha to that list! I really want to see her!

  • jack5791

    OMG! I’m so excited. And Sons of Sylvia!!!

  • Trina

    Yeah!! Definitely going to Atlantic City and Trenton!

  • eliza

    Thanks, windmills! I might have to look into becoming a member of her fan club if it helps me snag better tickets!

  • MalwareDie

    Not too keen on Ashley’s vocals but I do wish that fortune will go in Sons of Silvia’s way.

  • Reflections On Life

    both her opening acts are dudes? was this true of her last tour?
    doesn’t she wanna give any country ladies a shot?

    by comparison, doesn’t taylor swift have kellie pickler open for her?

  • windmills

    Yes Carrie does because she has mentioned in numerous interviews that she would love to tour with Miranda and Kellie. In fact Carrie’s vision of the tour is that it would be one super-band and nobody would be the opener despite the fact that Miranda and Kellie aren’t quite where Carrie is as far as headlining status.

    However Kellie is not available for the 1st leg of Carrie’s tour and neither is Miranda. Lee Ann Womack (who shouldn’t really be opening for anybody) is booked on the George Strait tour and so is Reba. Martina is touring with Trace Adkins. Trisha isn’t touring and neither is Patty. Mallary Hope is probably too new to get the gig without a prior tie to Carrie like Sons Of Sylvia has. Sarah Buxton doesn’t seem to be touring right now.

    Too, the CW in the touring industry is that country fans won’t show up for an all girl bill unless it’s heavily teens/tweens which Carrie’s fanbase is not. That’s why you’re getting a mixed bill with a female headliner, a solo male, and a group. For the Carnival Ride tour 2nd leg her opening act was the awesome Little Big Town which features 2 females and 2 males.

    WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE JACKSONVILLE!!!! FML!!!!!!!

    windmills, that’s funny :)

  • ladymadonna

    Gasp! I can’t believe she’s coming right to my backyard. I had to travel more miles than I care to think about to see David Cook, and even Kelly played outside the city and required a drive. Great looking set of arenas there, Carrie! It’s awesome to see one of the Idols garnering this level tour on the strength of her headlining name.
