Keith Urban Reveals More Details About His ‘Light The Fuse Tour,’ Announces Second Leg

Keith Urban revealed more details about his highly anticipated 2013 tour today.

The superstar will embark on the first leg of the ‘Light The Fuse 2013 Tour’ on July 18 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The second leg will kick off October 18 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Urban, who will be bringing Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch along for the tour, has plans to preview new music for fans on the road.

“Even if the record is not out at the beginning of the tour, we will be doing songs off the new album on the tour,” Urban says (quote via USA Today). “So, in a strange happening, we may end up playing songs that people haven’t heard yet. So the first time you’ll hear them will be live.”

While the singer will bring the tour to festivals, amphitheaters, and arenas, he admits he prefers playing inside.

“I love playing indoors,” Urban says. “I hate being at the mercy of the weather. There’s something about having guitars stay in tune. The arenas have been a good setting for that.”

“I’ve always been a big fan of one roof over everybody,” he adds. “I just feel like there’s so much commonality that we’re all under one roof.”

Although he prefers arenas, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like playing other venues.

“At the same time, I have great memories of playing the amphitheaters, too, because you’ve got the crazy crowd up on the lawn, and it’s just a big outdoor party. With this record having a lot of uptempo material on it, too, it’ll lend itself to that kind of environment. So I’m really looking forward to being outside.”
