Keith Urban May Star on Australian Version of ‘The Voice’
Keith Urban is already filling up his 2012 calendar with a headlining slot at a major festival and a possible major television appearance.
Urban is the main headliner at what may well be one of next year’s most star-studded country music festivals, the Bayou Country Superfest at LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rogue, La. Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts are the other headliners for the 2012 Memorial Day festival that includes Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Sara Evans and Little Big Town on the bill.
The report states that Urban would join musicians Seal, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte and Australian songbird Delta Goodrem as mentors on the show if contracts are finalized.
As if that isn’t enough, Urban continues his U.S. tour and has just released his latest single, ‘You Gonna Fly.’ The title seems especially suitable for Urban, especially if he joins the Aussie version of ‘The Voice’ that would reportedly debut in August.
For now, though, we know for sure that Urban will headline the Bayou Country Superfest slated for May 26-27, so get your tickets as soon as they go on sale on October 20. The smart money predicts this festival will be a sell out. Prices for two-day tickets range from $80-500, and single-day tickets cost $50-$250.
