Keith Urban just wrapped his Light the Fuse Tour in his native country, Australia, but he can’t wait to get back on the road. He will kick off his Raise ‘Em Up Tour on July 12 at the Calgary Stampede in Alberta, Canda. The U.S. tour launches on July 17 in Atlantic City. Urban will perform all of his tour shows in outdoor amphitheaters, as he did for the Light the Fuse Tour.

“There’s a big celebratory feeling that was a little more looser and a little more relaxed in that sort of outdoor setting, which is what a summer concert feeling is,” he said. “It’s a different thing to an arena. I mean, audiences know that because they go and they feel that too. It’s a little more liberated, looser, chill, and it feels kind of sexier in a way, actually.”

Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge will join Urban on tour. Before he heads to Calgary, though, Urban will perform on Good Morning America’s “Fun in the Sun 2014 Summer Concert Series” on Friday, July 11. Urban just released his new single, “Somewhere In My Car,” to country radio.
