Keith Urban has announced a slew of summer tour dates. The run includes numerous music festivals, arenas, and stadiums, as well as a few previously announced shows alongside The Eagles and The Dixie Chicks.
The outing opens April 16 at the Country Thunder festival in Florence, Arizona. Dates are scheduled through Sept. 4 in Essex Junction, Vermont. More stops are expected to be added in the coming weeks.
Urban is stopping in many cities where his 2009 Escape Together World Tour did not appear, and in some markets for the very first time. The 2009 world tour played before sold-out crowds in the United States, Canada and Australia, in support of his latest album Defying Gravity.
Last year was a big year for Urban, who won his first American Music Award, and his first People’s Choice Award. He followed that in February with his third Grammy, winning Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “Sweet Thing.” He is nominated for Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year at the upcoming ACM Awards.
