Keith Urban is hitting the road for another world tour!
The 48-year-old country star announced he’s embarking on a 50-city tour to promote his new album, Ripcord, on Monday, Jan. 11, according to Rolling Stone.
“It’s all amphitheaters and arenas,” Keith said of his new tour, which kicks off on June 2 in Kansas City, Mo. “Last year, we were doing mostly festivals and that sort of thing. It wasn’t a conceptual production, really. This is us getting back to that world.”

This will be Keith’s 11th tour. Ripcord is the American Idol judge’s 10th studio album. His first, Keith Urban, was released in 1991 and his latest, Fuse hit shelves in 2013.
“I’d love to dedicate an entire year to making a record, and doing nothing else, but that’s not the way life is for me,” he said of recording his newest album. “So I make records within the life that I have, and that’s got its own advantages, too. You’re not so myopic. You can do some work, get away from it for a bit, then come back. There’s an advantage to that.”
