Keith Urban’s “Get Closer” world tour will be kicking off June 16th, and as usual, it will be a Keith Urban tour you don’t want to miss. Fans attending the show can be sure they will “Get Closer” to Keith as he puts on one of the most anticipated tours this year. “I’m going into the crowd on several occasions,” he assures. “This tour is not just called “Get Closer,” it’s literally going to be that, too.”
When walking into a crowd of screaming fans, it is difficult to know exactly what to expect. One thing is for sure though, they will do everything they can to catch a glimpse of maybe even touch the arm of their favorite star. “Maybe from the outside it looks very different, but the lost buttons and ripped sleeves testify to something very different. I’ve come home a few times with scratches on my chest and on my back, and my wife’s gone, ‘What is that?’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I’ll show you,’ and we’ve filmed the audience. She’s like, ‘Oh my god!’ [Laughs] It can be a bit treacherous out there sometimes, but it’s always different, always unpredictable, and I love it.”
During the tour, not only will fans be hearing the new music released from Keith, songs like “Without You” and “Put You In A Song,” but he will be putting a new spin on some of his older songs we well. However, there is no need to worry, all of the fan favorite songs will be left alone. “There are certain songs that are sacred,” he says. “People want to hear them just as they are in their head, they don’t want you messing around with them. And then there are some other songs, if they’ve been around a long time in our set list, that I think we can take some creative liberties with. I’m looking at performing a couple of these songs as if they were remixed.”
This tour will be sure to entertain the audience and keep fans wanting to hear more from Keith Urban. A lot of work has gone into making it one of his biggest tours yet and he may even give Taylor Swift a run for her money. There is no telling what kinds of tricks he has up his sleeve.
