Keith Urban Announces Album & Tour

Published On January 18, 2018 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Keith Urban played one of his pop-up shows in Nashville on Wednesday, January 17th at the Exit/In, but his time he brought a very special guest and announced some big news. First of all, Keith said that his new album will be called Graffiti U, which he hopes will be out “very soon.” Then there’s the Graffiti U World Tour 2018, which will kick off on June 15th in St. Louis, MO and run through November 3rd in Dallas. Keith will be joined by special guest Kelsea Ballerini, who joined the headliner on stage to perform Camila Cabello’s “Never Be The Same.”

Keith entertained the crowd of about 350 fans with a two-hour set. He also invited one lucky Belmont University student on stage to help him announce the Nashville date on the tour — August 24th — and when he found out she is an aspiring singer, he invited her to sing “Without You” with him. Keith also tapped some lucky fans to be part of a video promoting the tour and rolling out the dates.

“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for GRAFFITI U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before. I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.”

The tour includes a couple of stops in the area:

Jun 22 — Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Music Theatre

Jun 29 — Toronto, ON @ Budweiser Stage
Jun 30 — Toronto, ON @ Budweiser Stage

Sept 15 — London, ON @ Budweiser Gardens
