Keith Urban announces The Speed of Now World Tour

North American leg features Ingrid Andress

Four-time GRAMMY Award winner Keith Urban has set summer ’22 for the North American debut of his first world tour in four years, The Speed of Now World Tour. The tour’s newly announced North American leg, with 3x GRAMMY nominee Ingrid Andress, will add 50 shows to the previously announced concerts in Australia, Germany, Netherlands and the UK.

The tour includes Urban’s first concerts in Ft. Worth and Savannah, his first appearances at venues in Los Angeles and Jacksonville, as well as shows in Knoxville, Charleston and Madison where he hasn’t played in nearly a decade. The US start June 17th in Tampa and run through November 5th at St. Paul.

Tickets for shows on May 27th, 28th and 29th, part of Urban’s run of dates at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, go on sale on December 10th at 10 am via Ticketmaster. Other US tour dates go on sale December 7th at 10 am local time.

Critics from around the globe have hailed Urban’s concerts as ones “not to be missed,” as unpredictable as they are explosive. Combine his infectious showmanship, virtuoso guitar playing, effortless spontaneity with a fist-pumping, arena-ready arsenal of hits and the trek promises to be one of the concert event of the summer.

“Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in that moment,” says Urban. “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable – even for us! After two years we’re finally gonna get the chance to play some of the new songs we haven’t done live before. We’ll throw in a bunch of the songs that everyone comes to hear, a couple of which we’ll rework a bit, and it’s really gonna be tough to get us off the stage.”

He adds, “I’ve always considered myself a live performer first. It’s what I’ve always done and it’s what my music needs to live and breathe. Our shows are all about living in the moment. They’re a totally interactive and immersive experience where everyone can participate in whatever way they want – sing, dance, do whatever.”

But what lies at the heart of every great show are the songs. “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” “The Fighter,” “Somewhere In My Car,” “Wasted Time,” “Somebody Like You,” “Long Hot Summer,” his latest single “Wild Hearts,” and his global smash “One Too Many” with P!NK, will anchor a night of music from one of the touring world’s best.
