‚ÄúThis GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR is by far the most insane energy we‚Äôve ever seen at our shows.¬†I always love being able to bring the tour to Oz, but to also have Julia Michaels with us this time is incredible ‚Äď and will be the first time we‚Äôve ever toured together,‚ÄĚ said Urban. ‚ÄúThe way the record has been embraced here too is extraordinary ‚Äď so being able to bring those songs to life and have everyone singing them with us will be seriously awesome!‚ÄĚ

The ‚ÄúGRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR AUSTRALIA‚ÄĚ will commence on 23 January at Newcastle‚Äôs Entertainment Centre, followed by 25 and 26 January at Qudos Bank Arena, 27 January at Canberra‚Äôs GIO Stadium, then will head to Brisbane‚Äôs Entertainment Centre on 31 January and 2 February, before concluding at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on 5 February.

Urban is known as one of the best live performers in the business and has been praised as a ‚Äúbrilliant and consummate performer,‚ÄĚ* and ‚Äúa master in concert.‚ÄĚ**¬†His last tour of Australia was the sold-out ‚ÄúripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016,‚ÄĚ which boasted sales of nearly 100,000 tickets,¬†playing to¬†sold out arenas¬†everywhere. In Canberra¬†Urban played to the biggest audience assembled¬†in the ACT in the last decade¬†and was bestowed the honour of opening Sydney‚Äôs ICC Theatre.

Joining Urban on his ‚ÄúGRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR AUSTRALIA‚ÄĚ is American superstar, Julia Michaels.¬†¬†With a CV that boasts songwriting credits for the likes of Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Britney Spears, Michaels burst into the spotlight with her hit ‚ÄėIssues‚Äô, reaching No. 5 on the ARIA Singles Chart.¬†¬†Michaels teamed up with Urban last year to write the infectious single ‚ÄúComing Home,‚ÄĚ on which she also contributes guest vocals.¬†¬†It will be Australian fans‚Äô first opportunity to see Michaels live in arena setting.

Of the opportunity Michaels said, ‚ÄúI am so excited to be joining Keith on his ‚ÄúGRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR AUSTRALIA.‚Ä̬† Keith is an incredible artist and one of my favorite human beings, and I can‚Äôt wait to hit the road with him.‚ÄĚ

GRAFFITI U is Urban’s first new studio album in nearly two years.  The highly anticipated follow up to 2016’s record-breaking, #1 Platinum album RIPCORD,GRAFFITI U is a natural musical progression that began with Fuse, but it also marks where Urban currently resides creatively. 

Keith Urban has consistently topped charts in Australia and the U.S. over the last decade, amassing more than 22 million album sales worldwide with combined sales of 1.4 million albums in Australia.  His last album RIPCORD was the second highest selling album in Australia in 2016 and the highest selling album for an Australian artist that year. RIPCORD spent 27 weeks in the top 10 and 46 weeks in the top 20 of the ARIA Albums Chart.
