Keith Urban has spent the better part of his life harnessing a deep-seated passion for music. This, when combined with his authenticity, talent and driving musical inquisitiveness, helps to understand why he is one of the most successful and well-respected artists in the world. He’s won four GRAMMY© Awards, thirteen CMAs, fifteen ACMs, three AMAs, two People’s Choice Awards and celebrated nine consecutive gold, platinum or multi-platinum albums.
His latest studio album, The Speed of Now Part 1, marks the fourth in an historic streak of simultaneous #1 album debuts in the United States, Canada and Australia, and produced his global hit and duet with P!NK, “One Too Many,” which has had in excess of 400 million streams worldwide and spent over 44 weeks in the top 50 UK airplay charts.
The album placed Urban on sales and radio charts all over the globe with hits including “Polaroid” and “Superman”, both of which were Radio 2’s ‘Record of the Week’ and in the top 30 UK Airplay charts, as well as, a collaboration with Chic legend Nile Rodgers and rising country-trap star Breland on his single “Out The Cage”.
This summer saw Urban be part of the performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” for the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. He also featured on two songs from Taylor Swift’s album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) including “That’s When” and “We Were Happy.”
While plans for a 2020 U.K tour were put on hold due to COVID, Urban will return in 2022 for a run of shows throughout the UK and Europe as part of the THE SPEED OF NOW World Tour.
Urban’s concerts have become legendary - as unpredictable as they are explosive - and his “GRAFFITTI U WORLD TOUR” was no different. One of Urban’s most successful, it played to more than 1.5 million fans in seven countries on three continents. An explosive experience of emotion, musical texture, energy and showmanship, Urban’s concerts connect to and touch every soul whether in an arena of 15,000 or outdoors in front of 50,000.
Urban’s musical virtuosity and fluidity has made him the musician’s musician. He’s collaborated with a diverse group of artists that include, among others; Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Mayer, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Dzeko, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and Vince Gill.
