Carrie Underwood is nearing the end of the 1st leg of the Blown Away arena tour, a 55-date trek to be followed by another 45+ North American and UK dates in 2013. Unfortunately she has been under the weather this week, tweeting on December 13th after her show at the United Center in Chicago:
Sweet Chicago! You were amazing tonight! I’ve officially lost my voice!!! I guess my day off tomorrow will be spent at the doctor! #noshots!
She went ahead with last night’s concert at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa despite being under the weather, and performed a 90+ minute set with a only a couple songs cut from her regular set. But because she was not satisfied with her performance, she told Des Moines concertgoers that she would donate everything she was to have made off this show back to the local community. Check out video of Carrie (with a very croaky speaking voice) making that announcement.
The venue staff tweeted after the show:
@carrieunderwood thank you so much for a great show even though you were sick! You didn’t sound anything less than amazing #carrieDM
This morning, Carrie’s team announced that Carrie’s sold-out Kansas City, Missouri concert scheduled for tonight has been postponed until May 1, 2013 due to her illness, moving the Springfield, Illinois show originally scheduled for that date to May 6, 2013. Carrie’s next concert is now scheduled for December 18, 2012 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee, so she’ll have a few days to rest. Feel better soon, Carrie!
