Keith Urban is expanding on his Keith Urban Live — Las Vegas residency dates. Taking place ahead of his previously-announced Memorial Day Weekend Vegas shows, Urban’s five new dates will happen in late March and early April at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace.
Urban’s shows at the Colosseum have been happening on and off since late 2019, when he helped re-open the Colosseum with two shows billed as an extension of his Graffiti U Tour. Urban eventually played four residency dates in Vegas in January 2020 before announcing 12 more dates scheduled for later on that year.
After some pandemic postponements, he announced more dates in 2021, and will continue his Vegas run with the new batch of shows in the spring of 2022.
The newly-announced dates are March 25, 26 and 30 and April 1 and 2. Tickets go on sale on Monday, January 31 at 10AM PT, but members of Urban’s official fanclub, the ’Ville, will have access to a special presale starting on January 26 at 10AM PT. Additionally, Citi cardholders have access to another pre-sale.
After he concludes his current run of Vegas shows over Memorial Day Weekend, Urban is heading out on his lengthy The Speed of Now headlining tour. That run kicks off on June 17 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and will extend through early November, wrapping with a stop in St. Paul, Minnesota.
“Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in that moment,” Urban said via a statement. “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable – even for us!” He adds, “After two years we’re finally gonna get the chance to play some of the new songs we haven’t done live before. We’ll throw in a bunch of the songs that everyone comes to hear, a couple of which we’ll rework a bit, and it’s really gonna be tough to get us off the stage.”
The trek will include Urban’s first concerts in Fort Worth, Texas and Savannah, Georgia., as well as a stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October. 7.
The tour takes its name from Urban’s The Speed of Now Part 1 album, which was released in September 2020 and features “Superman,” “One Too Many,” (with Pink) and “Out The Cage” (featuring Breland and Nile Rodgers).
