Carrie Underwood launched her new arena “Cry Pretty Tour” on Wednesday (May 1st), with a sold-out show at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

She tweeted after the show Wednesday night, “Thank you, Greensboro, for an AMAZING first show of the #CryPrettyTour360 ! We truly felt the love tonight!!!”

“I think my favorite thing about performing live is just getting kind of lost in the music and the show,” she says.”I have as much fun as hopefully everybody sitting out in the audience is having. I get to connect with the fans. I get to see people.”

She continues, “The people that are streaming music and downloading music and buying albums, they’re finally in front of me. To get to have that moment with them is so much fun. The lights and the costumes and getting to have moments with my band members on stage, I mean it’s all a lot of fun.”

Tonight (5/3), Carrie plays a show in Birmingham, Alabama followed by shows in Little Rock, Arkansas (May 4th) and San Antonio, Texas (May 6th).

The new tour will play more than 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada.
