KEITH URBAN BRINGS ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016 TO BARCLAYS CENTER ON NOVEMBER 19Feb 19, 2016
BROOKLYN (February 19, 2016) - Four-time GRAMMY-Award winner and American Idol judge Keith Urban will bring his ripCORD World Tour 2016 to Barclays Center on Saturday, November 19, with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris.
Tickets to the show go on sale Friday, February 26 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online by visiting www.barclayscenter.com or www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center beginning Saturday, February 27 at noon (if tickets are still available).
“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” said Keith Urban. “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!”
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 and is already in the Top 20.
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” (currently Top 10 and rising). It is the follow-up to Urban’s groundbreaking release FUSE, his fourth #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.
