February 25, 2016
Two nights of country star Keith Urban are headed to Lake Tahoe this summer.
Urban will play Wednesday, July 27, at the Harveys Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena in addition to a previously announced show on Friday, July 29, at the Stateline venue.
Tickets for the July 29 show are on sale now. Presale tickets for the July 27 show will be available starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23. General tickets for the July 27 show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26.
Both of the summer dates are part of Urban’s ripCORD World Tour 2016 and feature Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris as openers.
“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” Urban said in the press release for the tour. “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from ‘ripCORD,’ all new production, new cities where we’ve never played … and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!”
“Urban’s ‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ takes place on the heels of his soon to be released eighth studio album release of the same name, which has already produced two singles — his Grammy nominated, 19th No. 1 song, ‘John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16’ and its second single ‘Break On Me,’” the release continues. “It is the follow-up to Urban’s groundbreaking release ‘Fuse,’ his fourth No. 1 album, marking the first time in history that a male Country artist had debuted atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
“Brett Eldredge’s current single, ‘Drunk On Your Love’ is the second single from his recently released sophomore album, Illinois. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard top 200 Chart and has already produced the No. 1 single ‘Lose My Mind.’ The 2014 CMA New Artist of the Year co-wrote and co-produced every song on the 12 set disc, which follows on the heels of his 2013 debut album Bring You Back.
“Twenty-five year-old Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself in Nashville’s music community with songwriting and vocal stylings that reflect her country, folk and pop influences, with Rolling Stone Country touting her ‘a stellar solo artist in her own right.’ Songs from her self-titled EP have been critically received and just two weeks after its release surpassed 5.5 million streams, with 3 songs hitting Spotify’s US and Global ‘Viral 50’ chart, zipping to #1 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker Album Chart. Her first single, ‘My Church,’ has been released to country radio.”
