Urban Downunder

What could be better than seeing one of country music’s biggest stars performing on his own turf? Grab your passport and start checking flight schedules. Keith Urban plays Australia in April.

Although born in New Zealand, Urban began his music career in Brisbane and returns to the continent for a series of shows beginning at the Adelaide Convention Centre April 8.

Other dates include April 9 at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena; April 12 in Tamworth at the Entertainment Centre; April 14 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre and April 15 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Lady Antebellum supports on all dates, marking the first time the group has played Australia.

This will be the first time Urban has launched a global tour in Australia. The artist’s North America run begins June 16 in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.
