Keith Urban Announces RipCORD World Tour 2016

Keith Urban will be hitting the road this year! The country superstar has announced his plans for his RipCORD World Tour 2016.

The RipCORD World Tour 2016 will be Urban’s first arena and amphitheater tour in two years. The trek will begin on June 2 in Kansas City, Mo., and currently includes nearly 50 dates throughout the United States and Canada, with more to be announced. Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris will be joining Urban as special guests.

“I’m seriously champing at the bit to kick off this tour,” Urban says in a press release. “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!!!”

Eldredge and Morris, too, are thrilled to have been invited along for the ride.

“I was a Keith Urban fan long before I ever got this music thing going,” says 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!”

Adds Morris, “When I was asked to join Keith on tour, I was floored. 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!”

Tickets for select RipCORD World Tour 2016 shows are scheduled to go on sale on Jan. 29. More information is available on Urban’s official website.

Urban has been teasing the release of new music, his eighth studio record RipCORD. An official street date for the disc has not yet been announced, but the project is expected early this year.
