Keith Urban’s story is one unlike any other in country music. Originally a native of Australia, Urban gravitated towards American culture and, taking a cue from the artists he admired, moved to Nashville in hope of breaking into the recording business. He has spent the better part of his life harnessing a deep-seated passion for music and has climbed his way to the top of the country charts, continuously working just outside of mainstream and adapting well throughout his career.
His combined authenticity, talent and intense musical inquisitiveness have made Urban one of the most successful and well-respected artists in the world. He has won four Grammy Awards® thanks to hits like “Stupid Boy” and “Sweet Thing,” as well as thirteen CMAs, three AMAs, two People’s Choice Awards and nine consecutive Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum albums.
Urban’s musical fluidity has made him a true musician’s musician, collaborating with a diverse group of artists such as Billy Gibbons, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Mayer, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and more.
The stage is set for what will be Urban’s biggest tour in nearly four years. The Speed of Now World Tour will play to fans in six countries spanning across three continents. Urban’s concerts are known to be legendary – as unpredictable as they are explosive. An experience of emotion, musical texture, energy and showmanship, Urban’s concerts will touch your soul.
