Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Keith Urban has been teasing a “big announcement” for weeks, and on Monday, he finally revealed the big news: a 2016 world tour.

The Ripcord World Tour 2016 begins June 2 in Kansas City, Mo. and runs through more than 50 cities until November, with additional cities to be announced. Openers include Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris.

“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” Urban says in a press release. “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from RipCORD, all new production, new cities where we’ve never played … and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!!!”

Eldredge, a huge fan of Urban, also shares his excitement to hit the road with the “Break on Me” singer.

“I was a Keith Urban fan long before I ever got this music thing going,” Eldredge says in a release. “He is an absolute powerhouse on stage — unlike anyone I’ve ever seen and to top it all off, one of the most down to earth people I know! The Ripcord tour is gonna be on fire! Get ready!”
