Keith Urban Announces New “Graffiti U” Album and 58-City World Tour With Kelsea Ballerini

During a pop-up show at Nashville’s Exit/In last night (Jan. 17), Keith Urban revealed that his upcoming album will be called Graffiti U. In addition, Keith announced that he will embark on a 58-city Graffiti U World Tour with opener Kelsea Ballerini this summer and fall.

“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for Graffiti U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before,” said Keith. “I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.”

Keith’s 58-city tour will kick off on June 15 in St. Louis and will make stops in Nashville, Denver, Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Dallas and more, as well as 10 dates in Canada.

“I remember hearing Keith Urban songs that stopped me in my tracks and made me want to drop everything and chase that kind of lyric and heart filled artistry,” says Kelsea. “He’s the best in the business and I can’t wait to fangirl and learn from him this year. Truly an honor to tour with him.”
