About Keith Urban
Four-time GRAMMY® Award winner Keith Urban is back with the highly anticipated ‘THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR 2022’.
Critics around the globe have hailed Urban’s concerts as ‘ones not to be missed,’ as unpredictable as they are explosive, with no two shows ever alike and ‘THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR’ promises to be no different. Combine hits from his career, including his global smash hit duet with P!NK, One Too Many, which has amassed over 400 million streams worldwide, Parallel Line, Blue Ain’t Your Color, The Fighter, Polaroid and Superman, with his infectious personality, virtuoso guitar playing, showmanship and seemingly effortless spontaneity and together they make for one truly unforgettable night of music.
Summer 2021 saw Urban as part of the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games in Tokyo performing John Lennon’s “Imagine.” He also featured on two songs from Taylor Swift’s album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) including “That’s When” and “We Were Happy.” Keith returned to the stage with a handful of shows in the U.S., including the return of his run of concerts at Caesars Palace in the autumn of 2021.
With ten full-length studio records, four GRAMMY® Awards, and millions of albums, songs, and tickets sold worldwide, Keith has wowed fans all over the world with his exhilarating live shows. One of the most well-respected artists in the world, Keith has scored 24 career number ones and has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide as well as collaborating with a diverse group of artists that include Post Malone, Taylor Swift, P!NK and Nile Rodgers.
