Keith Urban’s ‘Ripcord’ Tour Headed to New Zealand
Keith Urban is headed to his native land of New Zealand, and he's bringing one of his most talented friends with him for the journey.
The country singer has just announced that his international Ripcord Tour will be headed to New Zealand's Westpac Stadium with Carrie Underwood in tow. This marks the first time Urban will play a major show in his home country and now sets the current tour to include four countries.
“I'm so psyched about finally getting to play a real show in the country of my birth," Urban says in a press release. "The last time I played music there, I was in a duo playing every weekend at a pub called the DB Onerahi in Whangarei... and I was 17. This is gonna be an amazing feeling!"
Urban is slated to play the New Zealand stop on Dec. 3, just a few days before he jets to Australia to play six shows on the mainland. Underwood will be joining him for both the Australian and New Zealand tour dates.
Before heading down under, Urban's Ripcord Tour will play dates throughout the United States and Canada with openers Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris, both of whom will only play the North American dates. That trek kicked off at the beginning of June and will wrap in Brooklyn on Nov. 19, giving Urban a couple weeks to rest before his very long international flight.
