Sam Hunt Live At Mohegan Sun

Monday, May 16th, 2016

Performing in the Arena on October 22nd

UNCASVILLE, CT (May 16, 2016) – Country superstar Sam Hunt has announced plans to hit the road this fall, and he will be making his way to Connecticut for his debut performance in Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, October 22nd at 8:00pm.

Tickets are $99.00 & $79.00 and go on sale Saturday, May 21st at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Sunday, May 22nd, subject to availability.

At first glance, Sam Hunt might seem like a fairly typical young Country singer—he grew up in a small southern town; spent his school days concentrating on sports, but feeling his attachment to music grow deeper and deeper; and came to Nashville with little idea of how the music business worked, but with big dreams.   But a closer look instantly reveals that there is nothing typical about the music that Hunt makes, nor about the way he has introduced his work to the world. In a short time and on his own terms, he has become one of Nashville’s most hotly anticipated new artists, and his debut album, Montevallo, delivers on the buzz and the promise—and then some.

The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round heads to Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, October 28th

UNCASVILLE, CT (April 1, 2016) – Seven-time Grammy winner and ACM “Female Vocalist of the Year” nominee Carrie Underwood has just announced The Storyteller Tour- Stories in the Round will extend through the fall including a highly anticipated night at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, set for 7:00pm. The in-the-round arena tour launched to rave reviews in January and has already played sold out shows across the U.S. Carrie recently returned from Europe where she played five shows in five countries, each part of Country to Country Festival (C2C).

Tickets are $81.00 and $51.00 and go on sale Friday, April 8th through Ticketmaster and aeglive.com at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, April 9th, subject to availability. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets for the U.S. shows before the general public beginning Monday, April 4th at Noon local time through Thursday, April 7th at 10:00pm local time. For information on fan club and D2C pre-sale opportunities and VIP packages go to carrieunderwood.fm.

“I always love being on the road performing for my fans,” shares Underwood, “but something about this tour feels more magnetic than ever. Having a 360-degree view of the audience gives me the opportunity to connect with more fans and feed off their energy. I can’t wait to continue this tour into the fall!”

Concert review critics have applauded Underwood’s confidence and command over the massive stage that spans the entire length of the arena floor. The Washington Post claimed she’s “at the top of her game,” and the Hampton Daily Press said the show’s “presentation is overwhelming, from start to finish- a spectacular sensory overload that had the crowd roaring all night long.” Rollingstonecountry.com praised “the in-the-round setting provides each concertgoer with the best experience possible. Simpler still is the storytelling aspect of the show and Country music’s reliance on conveying memorable stories in song.” The Boston Globe stated, Underwood “demonstrated that she now truly can stare unflinchingly into those lights and dominate a stage, with a confidence, defiance and a sense of ownership that have been a treat to watch come to fruition. A rock-solid, deftly sequenced hour-and-45-minue long set, which moved from playful to solemn, smooth to twangy, and from cinematic scope to smaller, intimate moments. The most stunning part of the production however, remains Underwood’s voice, strong and nuanced.”

The North American tour, promoted by AEG Live, will include special guests Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers.

Carrie will continue a donation of $1 from each ticket sold at the U.S. dates of The Storyteller Tour to be contributed to the C.A.T.S Foundation to help aid its causes including Checotah, Oklahoma’s education and literacy programs. Established in 2009, the C.A.T.S. (Checotah Animal, Town, and School) Foundation helps with general causes, needs, and services in the area of Checotah, Oklahoma, Carrie’s hometown, to directly impact the community.
