Keith Urban Announces North American ‘Raise Em’ Up’ Tour

Currently filming the 13th season of American Idol, Australia’s biggest country music export hasn’t even finished his current ‘Light The Fuse’ tour but has already released Keith Urban tickets for a new North American trek entitled ‘Raise Em Up.’

The singer-songwriter will conclude his eighth headlining tour Down Under in June after fulfilling festival dates at Florida’s Runaway Country Music Festival on March 23, Las Vegas’ ACM Party For A Cause on April 5 and Tunica’s Delta Country Jam on May 24.

But shortly after, he will launch a brand new tour across the U.S. and Canada, kicking off at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on July 12 – tickets for which are available on TicketIQ at a get-in price of $72 and an average price of $207.

The four-time Grammy winner will then combine solo dates with performances at various state fairs and festivals including Morristown’s Jamboree In The Hills on July 18 (4-day pass $115/$287), Bethlehem’s Musikfest on August 10 ($149/$237) and the tour’s finale at the Washington State Fair on September 13 ($75/$213).

There are still hundreds of Keith Urban tickets on offer at TicketIQ for most shows with the Sept 7 gig at Wheatland’s Sleep Train Amphitheatre currently the lowest get-in price at $35 (average price $201) and the Aug 30 concert at Salt Lake City’s Usana Amphitheatre the cheapest average price at $197 (get-in price $58).

Fans with Keith Urban tickets should expect an entirely different live experience from his most recent North American run with the 46-year-old promising new staging, new production and a new set-list as well as support slots from ACM New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Eldredge and Jerrod Niemann, who releases his sixth album, High Noon next week.

Urban isn’t the only male country superstar hitting the road this year. Jason Aldean will kick off his ‘Burn It Down’ tour at the Roanoke Civic Center on May 1 ($85/$148) and will take in various arenas and stadiums before wrapping up at Dallas’ Gexa Energy Pavilion on October 25 ($55/$243). The second North American leg of Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kinda Night’ tour will conclude on the same date at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl ($126/$386) after launching at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on May 3 ($108/$228).

Continuing to promote his tenth studio effort, Wheelhouse, Brad Paisley will begin another major North American trek at Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center on May 16 ($52/$223). While The Voice judge Blake Shelton will resume his ‘Ten Times Crazier Tour’ at the Austin360 Amphitheater on June 20 ($73/$251).
