Keith Urban has confirmed a new tour that will cover North America this summer. The number 20 Granite City Tour will kick off on June 28th in St. Paul, Minnesota and conclude on August 3rd in Los Angeles. Many of Urban’s new songs from his forthcoming album Graffiti U — set for release on March 16th — are also set to be featured on the tour. A news release boasts that all the songs from the new album are “about men who are raw, crying out for some quick, easy healing and love,” which is why the singer is now “deep in the studio again writing songs for another album.”
Graffiti U — which Urban wrote entirely alone — will be the second album the Australian star has recorded since his marriage to Nicole Kidman in 2006. His other studio album, Fuse, released in 2011, garnered Urban a Grammy award for Best Country Album, a couple of Billboard Music Awards and one of the most impressive chart positions of his career, debuting at number 1 on the country charts. “Thank you to the fans. They truly know how to appreciate a great live performance,” Urban said. “It is my honor to play for you. It’s my wife and kids who keep me connected to the music.”
