KEITH URBAN SETS ’22 FOR HIS RETURN TO THE ROAD AND THE DEBUT OF HIS “THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR”

Grand Rapids – “Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in
that moment,” says Urban. “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable
– even for us!” He adds, “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
off the stage.”

Four-time GRAMMY© Award winner Keith Urban has set Summer ’22 for the North American
debut of his first world tour in four years, THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR. The tour’s
newly announced North American leg, with 3x GRAMMY© nominee Ingrid Andress, will add
fifty shows to the previously announced concerts in Australia, Germany, Netherlands and
the U.K. The tour will make a stop in Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena on September
22, 2022. Tickets on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.
Please note that the box office will not be open for the on sale.

“I’ve always considered myself a live performer first,” says Urban. “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.”

Critics from around the globe have hailed Urban’s concerts as ones “not to be missed,” as
unpredictable as they are explosive. Combine his infectious showmanship, virtuoso guitar
playing, effortless spontaneity with a fist-pumping, arena-ready arsenal of hits and THE
SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR promises to be one of the concert event of the Summer.
But what lies at the heart of every great show are the songs. Blue Ain’t Your Color, The
Fighter, Somewhere In My Car, Wasted Time, Somebody Like You, Long Hot Summer, his
latest single Wild Hearts, and his global smash One Too Many with P!NK, will anchor a night
of music from one of the touring world’s best.
