Keith Urban Announces Ripcord World Tour Dates

His 2016 arena tour will also feature Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris.

On Monday (Jan. 11), Keith Urban announced the dates and special guests of his 2016 Ripcord World Tour.

Beginning June 2 in Kansas City, Mo., Urban has plans to play more than 50 shows in amphitheaters and arenas around the country, with more to be announced later in the year. Along the way, he'll bring rising star Brett Eldredge and country newcomer Maren Morris with him.

“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” Urban says. “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,” Brett adds. “He is an absolute powerhouse onstage—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,” Maren agrees. “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!"

Keith's Ripcord World Tour is named after his forthcoming eighth studio album. It has already produced two singles—"John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16." and "Break on Me"—but its release date has yet to be revealed.
