Big voice, big songs, big show – Carrie Underwood doesn’t know the meaning of small and fans who catch her live on The Storyteller Tour this year will see that first hand.
Underwood and her crew have been working out the kinks recently for the big debut Jan. 30 in Florida. Lighting cues, sound levels, staging and the biggest one of all, the pyro, all need to be perfected before thousands of fans fill these arena seats. Underwood recently instagrammed a clip of herself with crew member Ed testing out the stage pyro, because if there is one thing you don’t want to go wrong during the show, it’s a flash pot exploding underneath you.
Controlled explosions are always a big deal, but it’s an even bigger deal here because Carrie has a well-documented fear of pyrotechnics. You can see she’s still a little gun shy, no pun intended, as she cringes when the countdown commences.
Hopefully she gets used to the booms pretty soon because she’s got quite a few of them in her future. The Storyteller Tour has a packed calendar not only in arenas all over the US, but also hits both Europe and Canada for multiple dates all before the end of May.
