Just two months after the release of his 11th studio album, The Speed of Now Part 1, Keith Urban has announced a run of world tour dates in support of the record.

Set to take place in December of 2021, the tour will serve as Urban’s first tour of the country since December of 2019, and his first headline show since earlier in 2020.

“Releasing The Speed Of Now this year, and seeing it embraced so quickly and so passionately, was truly phenomenal,” Urban explained. “But this album is built to play LIVE, and waiting on that has been ‘teeth grinding’. I’m literally jonesing to get back on the road and do what we LOVE to do. CMON 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Releasing The Speed of Now back in September, Urban managed to top the Australian ARIA album chart, in addition to the US Top Country Albums chart as well, his fourth consecutive record to achieve the latter feat.

The upcoming tour will see Urban play a run of headline dates throughout Australia, including multiple shows in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne. Tickets to Urban’s ‘The Speed of Now’ world tour go on sale from 12pm local time on Tuesday, December 8th, while a pair of pre-sales take place in the coming days.
