Keith Urban is hitting the road this summer for the 2019 festival and fair season, and he’s bringing along an entirely new production to mark the occasion.
Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour has already played in amphitheaters, arenas and stadiums on three continents, but he’s put together an entirely new concert experience for his summer run of dates, with brand-new staging and lighting design and a revamped set list that includes his latest single, “We Were.”
The reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year debuted the new show during a performance on Friday (June 7) at the 2019 Taste of Country Music Festival, which took place amid the natural splendor of Hunter Mountain in upstate New York. Urban’s set leaned heavily on up-tempo songs including “Sweet Thing,” “Little Bit of Everything,” “Somebody Like You,” “You Look Good in My Shirt” and more, balanced with some slower songs that included “Parallel Lines,” “Cop Car” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

“I’m always looking for something a bit different when I go to see a show, especially when I see someone more than once — the set list, production, lighting, even just the vibe,” Urban says in a press release. “So I decided to change it up for the summer — have some fun and do something a bit different.”
Urban’s next summer festival date is scheduled for June 22 at the Lakeshake Festival in Chicago. He’ll keep busy in July and August, and perform a couple of shows in September before wrapping up his summer tour with a show at the Choctaw Grand Theater in Durant, Okla., on Oct. 18.
