While country music isn’t the most popular genre in the UK, those who do enjoy it show out when Keith Urban comes to Britain. With that being said, find out when you can expect to see the next Keith Urban UK tour.
Keith Urban has found himself a decent amount of success in the country music scene, with over 16 million albums sold across his career and a hefty award cabinet at home.
The ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’ singer has a long catalogue of hit songs and albums from across his 30+ years in the industry.
While he and country music as a whole are more popular in the US, Urban does have fans across the world, including in the UK. When he has visited British shores in the past, fans have come from all over the nation to see his shows.
With that said, find out what the artist is planning in 2023, both tour-wise and music release-wise as we ask the question, when could we expect the next Keith Urban UK tour?
When did Keith Urban last release new music?
Keith Urban’s most recent track release was ‘Street Called Main’, brought out in October 2022. The song precedes Urban's new album which is currently scheduled to be released at some point in 2023.
The album will be his first since 2020’s ‘The Speed of Now Part 1’. That album managed to reach number one in the US Country Album chart, as well as in both the official Australian Albums and Australian Country Albums charts.
Given that the album was labelled part 1, it could mean that Urban’s new release in 2023 may be ‘The Speed of Now Part 2’.
He hasn’t confirmed any details of the album so far, or that there even will be a part 2. He did previously say to Country 102.5 in 2020 “there are a lot of songs that I recorded that got left off this record that was heartbreaking for me to leave off. And that’s when I hit upon the idea to do part one and part two, cause I really want those songs to find their way out as well.”
When was Keith Urban’s last UK tour?
The four-time Grammy winner last went on tour in 2022, finally bringing his ‘The Speed of Now World Tour’ to fans after COVID meant he couldn’t do so sooner.
The tour visited Europe, North America and Australia, starting in April and ending in December.
He kicked off the tour in the UK on 28th April at the O2 Birmingham. He had seven dates altogether in the UK, which (excluding the Birmingham date) were:
- 1st May - O2 City Hall, Newcastle, England
- 3rd May - O2 Apollo Manchester, England
- 4th May - Bournemouth International Centre, England
- 6th May - London Hammersmith Apollo, England
- 7th May - London Hammersmith Apollo, England
- 9th May - Edinburgh Playhouse, Scotland
Will Keith Urban tour the UK in 2023?
While UK fans may be eager to see Urban’s newest album soon, they may have to wait a bit longer to see him live back on our shores.
The ‘Somebody Like You’ singer has his schedule for 2023 fairly booked up already, with dates in North America planned for the majority of the year.
From 3rd - 18th March and 16th June - 1st July he will be taking up a residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
There is a gap between those March and June dates where he has nothing pencilled in. However, with his new album still not seeming to be released anytime soon, it seems to be too optimistic to think he will come to the UK for a number of shows.
Looking ahead to the end of the year, his last currently scheduled date is on 22nd October. If he does release his album sometime in the summer maybe, it could be likely that he announces a supporting tour that may start at the end of the year or the beginning of 2024.
