Country superstar and hailed guitarist Keith Urban has set his eyes on this summer to return to the road with a four-month long North American leg of his huge “The Speed of Now World Tour”. The tour will make a stop in St. Louis at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre August 19 with Ingrid Andress opening.

The tour, which was initially planned for 2020 but had to be put on hold due to (what else) Covid-19, is now about to begin and will be his biggest tour in nearly four years and will play to fans in six countries, including in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Netherlands, Australia and Canada, on three continents.

“Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in that moment,” says Urban.  “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable – even for us!”  He adds, “After two years we’re finally gonna get the chance to play some of the new songs we haven’t done live before.  We’ll throw in a bunch of the songs that everyone comes to hear, a couple of which we’ll rework a bit, and it’s really gonna be tough to get us off the stage.”

“I’ve always considered myself a live performer first,” says Urban. “It’s what I’ve always done and it’s what my music needs to live and breathe.  Our shows are all about living in the moment.  They’re a totally interactive and immersive experience where everyone can participate in whatever way they want – sing, dance, do whatever.”

Critics from around the globe have hailed Urban’s concerts as ones “not to be missed,” as unpredictable as they are explosive.  Combine his infectious showmanship, virtuoso guitar playing, effortless spontaneity with a fist-pumping, arena-ready arsenal of hits and THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR  promises to be one of the concert event of the Summer.

Keith Urban has spent the better part of his life harnessing a passion for music.  This 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.

But what lies at the heart of every great show are the songs. “Blue Ain’t Your Color”, “The Fighter”, “Somewhere In My Car”, “Wasted Time”, “Somebody Like You”, “Long Hot Summer”, his latest single “Wild Hearts”, and his global smash “One Too Many” with P!NK, will anchor a night of music from one of the touring world’s best.

Last year Urban was featured on two songs from Taylor Swift’s album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) including “That’s When” and “We Were Happy,” a part of the performance of the John Lennon’s “Imagine,” for the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, as well as his return as host for the 56th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards with Mickey Guyton.

The tour includes Urban’s first concerts in Ft. Worth and Savannah, his first appearances at venues in Los Angeles and Jacksonville, as well as shows in Knoxville, Charleston and Madison where he hasn’t played in nearly a decade.

The tour will kick off in Las Vegas for 5 nights in late March before heading over to Europe for a month, then it is back to Las Vegas to begin the North American leg on May 27. Urban will then finish off the year with a month-long tour of his home country of Australia in December.
