Keith Urban is currently readying The Speed of Now World Tour 2022, and he recently surprised a few lucky fans to get their help for the tour. In a video posted to Instagram, Urban cold calls fans to get their song requests for the setlist. The fans are audibly shocked to hear Urban’s voice on the other end of the line and the singer looks equally happy to be speaking to his fans. Some people requested classic Urban hits such as “You’ll Think of Me,” while other fans suggested Urban play deep cuts from his albums. The singer also encouraged fans to share their song requests in the comments of the video. 

“Working on the setlist for tour and decided to call a few friends for suggestions,” Urban wrote alongside the clip. “There’s no one better out there to help than all of YOU! Drop a song (or ten) that you want to hear in the comments.” 

The Speed of Now World Tour 2022 will kick off in Birmingham, UK on April 28, after which it will run through the UK and Europe through the end of May. Urban will begin the North American portion of the tour on June 17 in Tampa, FL, with that leg running through November. Grammy-nominated country singer Ingrid Andress will open for Urban on all North American dates. Urban announced the North American dates in early December by way of a video showing him rehearsing for the tour his in backyard. 

“NORTH AMERICA, we’re ready to get this thing out of my back yard and onto a REAL STAGE,” wrote Urban. “THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR is coming to you in 2022! We’re bringing the incredible @ingridandress along for the ride, and it’s gonna be a blast.”
