Keith Urban has announced dates for his upcoming U.S. tour, set to open June 16 in Mobile, Alabama. For the Get Closer 2011 World Tour fans can expect an all-new stage production. The outing will hit more than 45 cities before wrapping in mid-October. On the schedule is an August 6 stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
The tour comes in support of Urban’s sixth studio CD Get Closer, which was released last week. Get Closer follows two previous consecutive Billboard country and pop No. 1 albums, as well as five previous CDs, all of which have been certified platinum or multi-platinum.
“Playing live is what it’s always been about for me,” said Urban. “It’s creating in the moment, it’s the joy, the electricity, the unexpected, the passion and the unknown journey that we’re all taking together. I’ve always felt that the best live concert experiences tap into a deep need in all of us to feel a part of something…to belong. I’m bringing the big boom box and an arsenal of songs and I can’t wait to throw this party!!!!”
