Keith Urban may have crafted the most creative tour announcement ever, with the help of opening acts Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch .
In a parody of the Vacation movies, Keith climbs into the driver’s seat of a small sedan, setting out on a road trip with Dustin on the passenger side and Little Big Town in the back seat. Along the way, the six sing an unforgettable mash-up of eighties tunes and current hits.
It starts with Dustin doing Wham ’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” then into Keith singing Bon Jovi ’s “Living on a Prayer” and Little Big Town reclaiming Culture Club ’s “Karma Chameleon.” Everyone chimes in on versions of “We Built This City” by Starship and “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Guns ‘N Roses . Before the trip is over, Jimi Westbrook offers his take on Rihanna ’s “Only Girl in the World,” and Keith gets a traffic ticket.
If the announcement is any indication, Keith’s North American tour should be quite a show. It kicks off July 18 in Cincinnati.
