|August 15, 2018||Keith Urban - Graffiti U World Tour||The Graffiti U World Tour 2018, also the name of Keith Urban's forthcoming ninth studio album (Graffiti U), will kick off in June and will visit 58 cities
including visits to cities in Nevada, Oregon, Alabama and Arkansas where Urban has yet to headline.
Urban's shows have become concert events that electrify. They're unexpected, if not unpredictable, and have been hailed by media around the world as a "concert experience not to be missed." The tour will feature many of Urban's 23 #1 songs, as well as brand new songs that have never been performed live and an all-new concert production that promises to be as spectacular as never before.
"I've been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for Graffiti U, a lot of whom I've never worked with before," said Urban. "I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating."
The tour also includes CCMA nominee Lindsay Ell as the opening performer for Urban's performances on this leg of the tour, as well as for his debut performance at the Walmart AMP. This is Ell's second time in two years to play the venue.
