Tour to coincide with new album set for release on March 31st
Keith Urban, one of country music’s most electric and critically hailed live performers, will hit the road again in 2009 with supporting acts including Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Glen Campbell, Lady Antebellum, and The Zac Brown Band. The upcoming tour, which will kick off in May, comes following the release of his as yet untitled, 5th studio recording. The singer, who wowed fans and critics on his “Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour” during 2007-2008, is ready to deliver another pulse pounding NEW concert experience. Tickets will go on sale early next year for the tour that will kick off in May and likely extend through the summer.
“We intend to give people their money’s worth, for sure” said Urban. “We’re looking forward to seeing fans’ reactions to the new material, and we’re seeing how we can put a few new twists on some older material. We’ll play for as long as the venues will let us.”
Critics have lauded Keith as “one of the best reasons in the world to attend a live concert” and have been quoted as saying that “fans would be hard-pressed to find a much better country — or rock — show anywhere.”
Keith recently released a new single, Sweet Thing, which has been one of the top selling Country songs on iTunes since its release. His live concert DVD, Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour, is currently available exclusively at all Wal-Mart stores.
