Keith Urban Pulls the “RipCord” for Three One-of-a-Kind Album Launch Events


Friday, May 6 will mark the much-anticipated release of Keith Urban’s eighth studio album RIPCORD, which has already produced two #1 songs (“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and “Break On Me”) and one of the fastest rising chart singles of his career with “Wasted Time,” the current single streaking to the top of the charts.

The album’s release will be celebrated with THREE unprecedented one-of-a-kind events that will take place within days of RIPCORD’s release, as Urban crisscrosses the country with stops in New York City, Nashville AND Los Angeles.  Fans are invited to attend ALL of the events and should go to for further information.  (Limited seats are available for the Los Angeles event.)

Urban’s first stop will be in New York City, where he’ll premiere all-new music from RIPCORD (as well as some of his hits) at Stage 48.  Those unable to attend will be able to view the May 4th New York City show, titled TIDAL X: Keith Urban, live online on TIDAL, the global music and entertainment streaming platform at 8:00 pm at

Following his May 4th stop in New York City, Urban will return home for a free outdoor noontime show in Nashville’s Bridgestone Plaza, complete with some of Nashville’s finest food truck vendors.  The album release event is being done in partnership with the City of Nashville.

“Keith is an asset to this city on every level,” said Butch Spyridon of The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.  “His talent as a singer, songwriter and musician is unquestionable and as a citizen he is a model for others to follow.  He has given back time and time again and it is truly appreciated.  While he is celebrating the release of his next great record, which is already a hit in our book, he is still giving back! We can’t say enough and it is an honor to help celebrate the album release by partnering with him for this this event.”

After the Nashville event’s conclusion Urban will head off to Los Angeles where he’ll grace the stage of the 200-seat GRAMMY Museum’s Clive Davis Theater for a special intimate evening KEITH URBAN “Inside The Songs Of RIPCORD.” The ‘inside the actor’s studio’ format will include moderator Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, and intimate performances and stories behind the writing, producing and recording of Urban’s groundbreaking new album.

“The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to host Keith in our Clive Davis Theater,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE.  “He’s one of our industry’s most prolific songwriters, insightful producers and most electrifying performers. He’s continued to break new ground through his music and that’s never been more apparent than on his new album RIPCORD. It’s our honor to be hosting this one-time only event.”

The recording of RIPCORD, Urban’s nearly 18-month musical journey, features some of the music industry’s most celebrated and influential musical collaborators from Pitbull to Nile Rodgers to Carrie Underwood and Dann Huff to Jeff Bhasker, Greg Wells and busbee.

Its release coincides with the June 2nd launch of the four-time Grammy Award winner’s ‘ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016’ with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris.

Keith Urban has long been hailed as one of the industry’s best live performers who has always given his fans, old and new alike, electrifying and unpredictable shows with eye-popping production and a set list that is saturated with many of his 20 #1 songs.  Electrifying and emotional, fast-paced and unpredictable, Urban’s concerts are an explosive experience, a roller coaster ride that numerous critics have called “concert events not to be missed.”

‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ with Dallas Smith and special guest Maren Morris, will debut on September 10th, in Vancouver, BC, kicking off the arena leg of the world tour.  The Canadian leg will be highlighted by first time performances in Kelowna and Prince George and the opening of the all-new Rogers Place in Edmonton, where Urban is the first announced artist to be playing the most modern, state-of-the-art building in Canada. In addition the Grammy Award winner will return to Vancouver, Calgary and Saskatoon, the latter of which Urban hasn’t played since 2011.  Previously announced stops include Toronto on July 8th and 9th at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.*

On May 6th, Urban will release his eighth studio album RIPCORD, the groundbreaking new album that has already produced Urban’s 19th (“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”), 20th (“Break On Me”) No. 1 songs, as well as his new single “Wasted Time.”  From Pitbull and Nile Rodgers to Carrie Underwood and Dann Huff to Jeff Bhasker, Greg Wells and busbee, Urban’s nearly 18-month journey creating RIPCORD has included some of the most influential and celebrated musicians of our time.

“Our Canadian shows have always been off the hook giant parties,” said Urban. “From the very first shows I ever did, there was a synergy with the audience that’s only grown stronger over the years. I can’t wait to bring the “ripCORD World Tour” to everyone this year.

The ‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ will now visit three countries, the United States, Canada and Australia.
