Legendary country entertainer Keith Urban just unveiled plans for his long-awaited return to the road. 

On Tuesday morning (Dec. 1), Urban surprised fans with the announcement of his first world tour in four years: The Speed Of Now World Tour. To celebrate, the four-time GRAMMY winner revealed the dates for the North American leg of the tour, set to kick off on June 17 in Tampa, Florida. 

“Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in that moment,” Urban shared in a statement.  “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable – even for us!”

The superstar is especially excited to play songs off his 2020 release, The Speed Of Now Part 1

“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 said. 

The North American leg of the tour which includes stops in cities such as Denver, CO, Nashville, TN, and Atlanta, GA, includes a total of 50 dates, adding to Urban’s previously announced concerts in Australia, Germany, Netherlands and the U.K.

 Joining Urban on the 2022 run will be Ingrid Andress

“I’ve always considered myself a live performer first,” the “Wild Hearts” singer shared. “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.”

Urban also has a run of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas planned for May 27th, 28th and 29th.
