Upon its release nearly four months ago, Keith Urban’s eighth studio album Ripcord debuted at #1 in the U.S. and Canada. It also took the top spot in Australia on their ARIA Album Chart and since then has not relinquished its slot inside the Top 10 – a career best for Urban. In fact, RIPCORD has remained in the Top 10 for the entire 15 weeks since it’s release – currently at #6 on the all-genre chart, up from #9.
In addition, the ‘ripCORD WORLD TOUR AUSTRALIA 2016,’ with Carrie Underwood, has announced additional shows in both Sydney and Melbourne, as both previously announced performances have sold-out. The concert in Sydney will be the first official performance at the ICC Sydney Theatre, located within the iconic International Convention Centre. In Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena will play host.
The previously announced December 3rd concert in New Zealand’s Westpac Stadium, Wellington, now brings to a total of four countries that the “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016,” will now visit.
Ripcord was #1 in Australia on the ARIA Album chart, #1 in the United States and in Canada for two weeks on release. It’s the second consecutive time that Urban has had a #1 album debut in multiple countries, having achieved the same historic milestone with Fuse.
