Carrie Underwood wrapped her ambitious The Storyteller Tour-Stories In The Round on Nov. 28 with a show in Salt Lake City, Utah. Since the trek launched in January, Underwood and her band have performed 92 shows, playing for one million fans. Along the way, the spectacle met with sold-out crowds in New York City (Madison Square Garden), Los Angeles (STAPLES Center), Nashville (Bridgestone Arena), Toronto (Air Canada Center) and more.

During the tour’s final stop, Underwood’s openers Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers, commemorated the tour by surprising Underwood with custom artwork.

The tour has logged more than 50,000 miles, and includes 18 trucks and eight buses to keep the production on the road.

The 150-feet-long, in-the-round style stage included seven stage elevators, three rings of video screen, and a revolving central stage. Barry Lather, who has worked with Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Usher, served as the tour’s creative director. Butch Allen, who has worked with Metallica, Eric Church, and No Doubt, was Production & Lighting Designer. Underwood’s tour wardrobe, designed by Marina Toybina, included 32 custom-made costumes and 214 pieces of jewelry to create different outfit combinations for the show’s five acts in each city.
