“Unquestionably one of the best live performers.”
“The best entertainer in country music today.”
“Delivers one of the best shows of any musical genre”.
Combine an unpredictable concert experience with jaw-dropping showmanship and16 #1 songs and it’s easy to understand why Keith Urban’s show is “a concert experience not to be missed.” Urban returns to the stage this Summer for his “Raise ‘Em Up” Tour with Jerrod Niemann and special guest Brett Eldredge, which will feature an all-new stage production and music not performed on the “Light The Fuse” Tour. Sure to highlight the “Raise ‘Em Up” set list will be first-time performances of music from Urban’s #1 album FUSE and even more of his numerous #1 hits. Tickets for Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up” Tour are now on sale.
The “Raise Em Up” Tour will be a complete build from the sky down,” said Urban. “New staging, new production, a lot more songs from FUSE that the fans have been requesting, a different mix of previous hits, and some rarities from past albums that we haven’t played in a while if ever!! And we’ll be sharing the stage with Brett (Eldredge) and Jerrod (Niemann) both with killer new albums!!!!!”
The “Raise ‘Em Up” Tour kicks off on July 12th in Canada at the Calgary Stampede and will debut in the United States on Thursday, July 17th. The 21-city Summer Tour crosses the country with concerts in cities including Boston, Hartford, St. Louis, Atlanta, Denver, and Sacramento before its close at the Washington State Fair on September 13th.
The six-time 2014 Academy of Country Music nominee, who will perform on the show on April 6th, has been in Los Angeles filming the 13th season of American Idol. He will headline The iTunes Music Festival in Austin this Saturday, March 15th.
Urban’s 2013 release FUSE, debuted at #1 on the all-genre Album Charts in three countries (The United States, Canada and Australia) and has already produced two #1 songs, “Little Bit of Everything” and “We Were Us,” a duet with Country superstar Miranda Lambert. His third and current single from FUSE “Cop Car” is fast climbing the charts.
Jerrod Niemann will celebrate the release of High Noon on March 25–the follow-up to Niemann’s acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free the Music–that features his current smash single, “Drink To That All Night.” His chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the #1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” For more information visit www.JerrodNiemannOfficial.com or follow Niemann online on Twitter at @jrodfromoz and on Facebook @jerrodniemann.
CMA and ACM “New Artist of the Year” nominee Brett Eldredge released his debut CD, Bring You Back, in August 2013 and marked the occasion with performances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Today” and “Live with Kelly & Michael.” The album features his No. 1 hit single “Don’t Ya” and his current Top 15 single “Beat of the Music.” Whether opening for superstars like Taylor Swift, writing hits for fellow artists like Trace Adkins, or displaying his unique sense of humor on Twitter, Eldredge continues to impress fans with his prolific talent, contagious energy and unmistakable voice.
