Tour buses and GRAFFITI U wrapped trailers, twenty-two in all, and a crew of ninety-three have hit the road, hauling enough cable to carry electricity from Nashville to St. Louis and nearly forty guitars for the launch of Keith Urban’s “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018.” 
A 23-song, two-hour plus set, marks the four-time GRAMMY Award winner’s first world tour in more than two years. 

After only a few shows, fans have been treated to Urban’s now expected unexpected. His fast-paced party-like performances reveal an unrivalled triple threat entertainer.  Vocalist, virtuoso guitarist and ever the showman, Urban’s connection to his fans always features spontaneous moments and “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018” has been no exception.

He revealed that his opening night featured guests, the innovative blues, Americana and rock duoLarkin Poe, will accompany him on the tour through August, performing “Where the Blacktop Ends.”   In addition, Urban has not only made a phone call to a fan’s friend (from the stage), he’s given an onstage pre-wedding first dance performance of “Making Memories of Us” to a Detroit couple.
It should come as no surprise that critics are raving.  Of his show in Indianapolis the Star said, “Urban reached an undeniable peak of energy exchange between performer and audience. He had the crowd hanging on every line…you’d be in decent shape if you wagered on Urban in a guitar duel against any living player.”

The “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018” debut in St. Louis led their Post-Dispatch to proclaim that, “Urban has made (his show) memorable from opening to closing.”  And Pittsburgh’s Post-Gazette states that “(Urban) maintains a special inexplicable quality seen in few musicians.”
The 58-city, 63 show North American leg of his “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018,” features GRAMMY Nominee Kelsea Ballerini, who will accompany Urban on the U.S. leg as his supporting act and Lindsay Ell, who will accompany Urban on shows north of the border (not including June 29 and 30 in Toronto).
