Keith Urban Announces United States Leg of The Speed of Now World Tour

Keith Urban is coming to America! The New Zealand-born superstar will embark on the United States leg of his The Speed of Now World Tour, kicking off on June 17 in Tampa, Florida. Ingrid Andress will serve as his opening act. The new tour dates are in addition to previously-announced shows in Australia, Germany, Netherlands and the UK.

“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 of the stage,” Urban says in a statement. “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.”

The father of two performed in Las Vegas earlier this year, but is ready to hit different cities night after night, engaging with fans all over the globe.

“[I’m most looking forward to] re-igniting that person-to-person connection I feel with everyone that comes out to see our shows,” Urban tells People. “It’s pure magic when you look out and see everyone just letting loose. I’ve really missed that!”

It’s been more than a year since The Speed of Now Part 1 came out, but Urban has never had the opportunity to perform those songs live on tour, until now.

“I can’t wait to play those,” Urban says. “Visually, I think it’s really important to create something that lends itself to the show’s energy, but it’s a bit early to know exactly what that’ll be for this tour — I have a few ideas though! I’m just so looking forward to playing, playing, playing!”

Tickets for all of Urban’s upcoming shows will go on sale on December 10, at 10:00 AM local time. See a list of tour dates below. Find more information at
