Keith Urban Announces ‘RipCORD’ World Tour 2016

keith urban tour

Keith Urban has long been hailed as one of the industry’s best live performers who has always given his fans, old and new alike, electrifying and unpredictable shows with eye-popping production and a set list that is saturated with many of his 19 No. 1 songs. Electrifying and emotional, face-paced and inclusive, Urban’s concerts are an explosive experience, a roller coaster ride that numerous critics have called “concert events not to be missed.”

‘RipCORD World Tour 2016’ with Brett Eldredge, along with special guest Maren Morris, will debut on June 2nd, in Kansas City, Missouri and thus far will play more than 50 shows in amphitheaters and arenas throughout the U.S. Additional legs will be announced and ticket on sales, which will begin in select markets on January 29th, will become available locally within the next few weeks.

“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” said Urban. “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from RipCORD, all new production, new cities where we’ve never played… and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!!!”

‘RipCORD World Tour 2016’ will not only see Urban’s first headlining shows ever in Youngstown (Ohio), Lincoln (Nebraska), Orange Beach (Alabama), Bloomington (Illinois) and Myrtle Beach (South Carolina), but will see his return to several cities in which he hasn’t appeared in three years, including Tampa (Florida), Kansas City (Missouri), Lake Tahoe (Nevada) and West Palm Beach (Florida).

“I was a Keith Urban fan long before I ever got this music thing going,” said Eldredge. “He is an absolute powerhouse on stage – unlike anyone I’ve ever seen and to top it all off, one of the most down to earth people I know! The Ripcord tour is gonna be on fire! Get ready!”

“When I was asked to join Keith on tour, I was floored,” said Morris. “I’ve personally been a fan of his for as long as I can remember. This is my first tour at this level, and I can’t think of a more respected writer, artist, and musician to join for it. It’s going to be an absolute blast!”

Urban’s ‘RipCORD World Tour 2016’ will debut on the heels of his soon to be released eighth studio album release of the same name, which has already produced two singles – his Grammy nominated, 19th No. 1 song, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and its second single “Break On Me.” It is the follow-up to Urban’s groundbreaking release FUSE, his fourth #1 album, that marked the first time in history that a male Country artist had debuted atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
