New Keith Urban Dates Light The Fuse

Keith Urban’s upcoming U.S. tour now has a name – “Light The Fuse Tour 2013” – as well as a second leg of dates. With support from Little Big Town and special guest Dustin Lynch, the trek now features 20 new gigs.

An announcement from the New Zealand-born and Australia-raised country singer says the tour will feature music from his upcoming album along with “an all-new production, the size and scope of which have become synonymous with Urban’s electrifying concert experiences.”

The new music is expected to be released this spring. His last full-length studio album is 2010’s Get Closer.

Next month the “American Idol” judge will host his fourth annual “We’re All For The Hall” benefit in Nashville to raise funds for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. He’ll also make an appearance at Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night in Las Vegas, which benefits the Academy of County Music’s ACM Lifting Lives.
