Keith Urban will perform at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas this Sunday, May 22, live on ABC. This is the first time Keith has performed on the show and he is set to perform music from his latest album, Get Closer. “Without You,” Keith’s current single, just became his 25th Top 5 single and has been the No. 1 video on GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown for several weeks running.
Besides performing on the Billboard Music Awards, Keith is gearing up to hit the road on the North American leg of his Get Closer 2011 World Tour, which kicks off on June 16 in Biloxi, Mississippi. The tour wound its way around Australia in April and had “audiences leaping to their feet from the first note and staying that way for much of the concert,” according to a review in Brisbane’s The Courier Mail. Jake Owen will open for Keith on all of his U.S. dates, with The Band Perry taking over for the ten Canada shows in July.
Lady Antebellum is also scheduled to perform during the awards show. The Billboard Music Awards air this Sunday on ABC at 8:00 PM/ET.
