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.

“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.

Mohegan Sun Arena Welcomes Back One Of The Best Rock Bands Of All Time On August 11th

UNCASVILLE, CT (February 22, 2016) – As Tom Scholz wrote in the Rock anthem on the BOSTON album Don’t Look Back, ”It’s a Party, Party, Party!” Indeed, the 40th anniversary BOSTON tour promises to be a celebration honoring the group’s loyal fans. Many of them have supported BOSTON since 1976 when the debut album, Boston first hit the airwaves and took Rock radio by storm, so it’s not surprising to see concert audiences that span generations.   The tour heads to Mohegan Sun Arena for a Thursday, August 11th concert, set for 7:30pm!

Tickets are $49.50 and go on sale Friday, February 26th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  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 Saturday, February 27th, subject to availability.

Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the extraordinary sound that is faithful to their studio recordings.

BOSTON became an iconic Classic Rock fixture when they joined the music scene with their self-titled album in 1976.  With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” Rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second album, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in Rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON has stood the test of time.
Fans can expect to hear all the classic songs they have grown to love, and will be treated to wild Hammond organ work, soaring harmony guitars, and exceptional vocal arrangements, as well as BOSTON’s unique visual stage presentation and plenty of extra-terrestrial sounds heard nowhere else on Earth.
