Expect to See an Onstage Collaboration Between Keith Urban & Kelsea Ballerini During Graffiti U World Tour: “I Like Her Spirit”

On June 15 in St. Louis, Mo., Keith Urban will kick off his Graffiti U World Tour with opener Kelsea Ballerini. The 50-plus-date trek will make stops in Nashville, Denver, Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Toronto, Vancouver and more, before capping in Dallas on Nov. 3.

Keith’s tour will feature a new U-shaped stage that will bring his performance “into the audience,” giving many fans an up-close experience. In addition, attendees can expect to see an onstage collaboration between Keith and Kelsea.

“Yeah, I like her spirit, I like her music,” says Keith. “I think it’s gonna be a really compatible night’s music. And I’ll find [a song] that we can [perform] together as well. I love performing with whoever we’re out on the road with.”

“I remember hearing Keith Urban songs that stopped me in my tracks and made me want to drop everything and chase that kind of lyric and heart filled artistry,” says Kelsea. “He’s the best in the business and I can’t wait to fangirl and learn from him this year. Truly an honor to tour with him.”
