Four-time Grammy Winner and Country Music superstar Keith Urban will be stopping in the Big Easy for one of the last dates on his 58-city Graffiti U World Tour 2018. 2017 Best New Artist Grammy nominee Kelsea Ballerini (“Peter Pan”) will be Urban’s opening act for the Friday, Nov. 2 show at the Smoothie King Center. Fans in New Orleans should be treated to an unpredictable and electrifying performance that has been hailed as a “concert experience not to be missed.” The tour is set to feature an all-new concert production, many of Keith Urban’s 23 #1 Country hits including “You’ll Think of Me” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” and brand-new songs that have never been performed live.
“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for Graffiti U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before,” said Urban. “I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.” New Orleans has undoubtedly become a favorite destination of the New Zealand Australian Country Music icon, most recently appearing at the 2015 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and at the Smoothie King Center in October 2016 as part of his Ripcord World Tour. Tickets for the upcoming Nov. 2 show will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 16 at Ticketmaster.com.
