Carrie Underwood To Release Concert DVD in August

blownawayCarrie Underwood is set to bring her The Blown Away Tour to DVD with The Blown Away Tour: LIVE on Aug. 13

Filmed in concert this past March in Ontario, Calif., the DVD features more than 20 songs, including performances of 12 of Underwood’s hit singles, including “Before He Cheats,” “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Two Black Cadillacs,” and the album title track that inspired her tour name, “Blown Away.”

The DVD offers nearly 100 minutes of performance footage, along with exclusive bonus clips offering a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the tour. Viewers will see interviews with Underwood and Raj Kapoor, the tour director responsible for the large production and the visual elements of her tour. The project will also feature several music videos from the entertainer’s Blown Away album.

The Blown Away Tour launched in spring 2012, making 112 stops in 110 cities, six countries and three continents. Underwood performed for more than 1 million fans.

By the numbers, the stage production for the outing included 575,424 individual LED lights in 3,000 square feet of video walls and 23,063 feet of cable to generate the 172 different colors used in the show’s lighting. As part of each show, Carrie and her band flew 150 feet above the audience on a secondary stage that weighed 5,890 pounds, while a total of 450 CO2 tanks and 222 nitrogen tanks were used during the life of the tour to create the “Blown Away” tornado effect at each performance.

DVD audio for The Blown Away Tour: LIVE will be in Dolby® 5.1 and stereo. The Blown Away Tour: LIVE is available for pre-order at
