Nicole Kidman’s husband will be in South Florida this coming weekend, and apparently he sings and plays some sort of country-Western music or something.
Keith Urban, who’s almost as pretty as his wife, is now three decades into his career and couldn’t be more popular. His current tour, the RipCORD World Tour, is his eleventh and a massive one, with 55 stops in total, mostly in the U.S. and a few in his native New Zealand. The sensitive country kiwi, who also sat on the judges' panel for American Idol, is set to take the stage at Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre on Saturday, June 18, and he’s bringing a few friends — Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris. It’s a pop-country radio bonanza.
Urban released his ninth studio album, Ripcord, in 2015, and it received a warm welcome thanks to singles like “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” in which the New Zealander croons a list of traditional American themes. Meanwhile, Eldredge and Morris are equally hot right now, with hit records of their own.
Catch the mini-festival of Keith Urban, Brett Eldredge, and Maren Morris at Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre (601-7 Sansburys Way) in West Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18. Tickets ranging from lawn to pit are still available at livenation.com.
