Keith Urban to Headline Australian “Super Bowl”

keith urban

As prestigious as the Super Bowl halftime show is in the United States is the National Rugby League (NRL) Telstra Premiership Grand Final in Australia, which multiple Grammy Award (and ARIA Award) winner Keith Urban will headline.  The final match will take place at the ANZ Stadium on Sunday, October 2nd in front of nearly 100,000 fans.  The appearance will feature songs from Urban’s #1 CMA nominated Album of the Year RIPCORD (an award that Urban has never won).

In Australia RIPCORD has exploded.  It debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album chart and the gold certified album remained in the Top 10 for 15 weeks, setting a new record for Urban for the number of weeks an album has remained in the Top 10 on release.  After 18 weeks the album still is in the Top 20.

During his trip to Australia, Urban will also perform at 2Day FM’s ‘World Famous Rooftop’ in Sydney.

Before it concludes Urban’s “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016” will have visited four countries including the U.S., Canada, Australia and for the first time ever Urban will perform in New Zealand at Westpac Stadium, Wellington. The tour’s arena leg began this month in Canada and will move to the U.S. in October.

Late last month Urban was nominated for four CMA Awards including the coveted Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist, Best Vocal Event (with Carrie Underwood for “The Fighter”), as well as the previously mentioned Album of the Year.
