Get a sneak peak at Keith Urban’s new tour before it comes to Fox Country!

“It’s a rehearsal, not a tour,” Keith Urban said this afternoon as a few hundred fan club members, radio winners, station staffers, media and industry gathered at Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium for a preview of the Get Closer 2011 Tour. The informal, abbreviated set opened with “Put You In A Song,” revealing staging that included a large, circular screen and roller coaster-like track assemblies behind and above the stage on which wheeled carts carried moving multi-colored lights. “I came in at the wrong time, didn’t I?” Urban asked his band after the opening number. “I’m new here,” he joked with the crowd. “We’ve got a week to get it right.” A rising satellite stage and a guitar giveaway were part of the show that was “about 25% of what you’re going to see on tour,” Urban said. Sponsored by AT&T and Samsung, the Get Closer 2011 opens next Thursday (6/16) in Biloxi, MS and will head to Jonesboro August 25th!  ( photo and story from Country Aircheck)
