It might seem like Keith Urban has been a bit quiet lately, but that’s not actually the case. For the past few months, the Australian country star has been hanging out on his home soil filming the Aussie version of ‘The Voice.’ But Urban just announced that when filming for the show wraps in January, he’s heading back out on tour, and he’ll be kicking off his next run Down Under.

According to Urban’s website, it sounds like he’s definitely ready to get on the road. “I can’t wait to tour in Australia again, new music, new show,” he says. I know we’re gonna have a blast!! Really looking forward to playing to a rowdy summer crowd!!!”

After several months coaching upcoming singers on ‘The Voice,’ Urban is probably ready to pick up his guitar and do his thing his own way. The ‘You Gonna Fly’ hitmaker will surely be playing tracks from his latest Australian album release ‘The Story So Far’ when he hits the land Down Under. Concertgoers will also probably get to hear an in-person performance of ‘For You,’ his latest charting single.

So far, four Aussie dates have been announced, but that’s just the beginning. We’re anticipating a full list of around-the-globe stops soon. Tickets will go on sale on Monday June 25 at 9AM ET. Aussie fans — purchase yours at www.ticketek.com.au.
