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 20 #1 songs. Electrifying and emotional, fast-paced and unpredictable, Urban’s concerts are an explosive experience, a roller coaster ride that numerous critics have called “concert events not to be missed.”

Some key highlights of this Grammy Award winner’s Canadian tour include first time performances in Kelowna and Prince George, as well as opening the brand new, most modern state of the art building in Canada, Rogers Place in Edmonton.
“Our Canadian shows have always been off the hook giant parties,” said Urban. “From the very first shows I ever did, there was a synergy with the audience that’s only grown stronger over the years. I can’t wait to bring the “ripCORD World Tour” to everyone this year.
The ‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ will now visit three countries, the United States, Canada and Australia. Ripcord, the album will be available beginning Friday, May 6th.
