Keith Urban Announces 2023 Las Vegas Residency

Keith Urban is returning to Las Vegas! The country music superstar announces Keith Urban: The Las Vegas Residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. opening Friday, March 3, 2023. Urban will perform 16 dates as part of his residency, concluding on July 1.

Urban admits he was initially hesitant to become a Vegas singer, but once he began performing in Sin City in 2019, he was hooked.

“I resisted a residency in Vegas for a few years. We got asked to come there quite a few years ago,” Urban tells Billboard. “I just didn’t think I would like it because in my head, it just seemed like the word residency just felt like, ‘Oh, you just doing the same show in the same place night after night after night,’ and that just sounded like an episode of Severance to me. But when we saw the Colosseum, I was ‘Oh my God, I think we’ll have a blast in here.’ I was surprised how much I loved it.”

Urban has performed, quite literally, all over the world, but the New Zealand native has a certain fondness for the audiences in Las Vegas.

“[They are] probably a little bit drunker on certain nights, which is right up my alley. I love a drunk audience,” Urban says. “I’m all about it. But one of the things that I noticed was I’d always say, ‘Who lives here in Vegas?’ and I would see a lot of hands go up. I love the fact that a lot of the locals wanted to come out and see us play. Obviously, they can go and see everything and they’ve seen everything, and the fact that they’re seeing us really, really moved me.”

Urban has performed multiple shows over the past three years at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, but will have a brand-new, custom-designed show at Zappos Theater next year. The Las Vegas residencies run the gamut of an artist and a guitar, a la Garth Brooks, all the way to Carrie Underwood‘s fully-staged theatrical performance. For Urban, he says his show will be “somewhere in the middle” between a simple show and an elaborate one.

“I want to take advantage of being able to build certain things that you can’t disassemble and move and reassemble easily night after night,” says the singer. “I want to take advantage of being able to build stuff that’s just going to stay, but the spirit of my show, I’m never going to change that. I’m going to have a certain way of playing that isn’t going to be too dependent upon behemoth props and production that kind of sweeps and drowns me. I’ve never been a fan of that for what I do.”
