Keith Urban ‘Chomping At The Bit’ For RipCORD World Tour 2016


LAUREN LAFFER • Sounds Like Nashville

Keith Urban is kick off the new week with HUGE news.

The superstar just announced his first arena/amphitheater tour in two years, The RipCORD World Tour 2016.

The tour will debut June 2nd in Kansas City, MO and will hit more than 50 shows around the U.S. Touring with Urban will be “Drunk On Your Love” singer Brett Eldredge and country newcomer Maren Morris.

“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” said Urban. “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!!!”

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

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

The ‘RipCORD’ World Tour 2016′ will begin shortly after Urban’s upcoming Ripcord album is released. The album will feature his Grammy nominated, No. 1 “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and current single, “Break On Me.”

Additional legs of the tour will be announced at a later date. Tickets in select markets go on sale starting January 29.
