LAS VEGAS (March 6, 2023) – Global music superstar Keith Urban debuted his new headlining Las Vegas residency this past weekend at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Keith Urban: The Las Vegas Residency is a brand new show, custom designed for the Zappos Theater stage. It features jaw-dropping production, as well as a more than two-hour musical journey through the celebrated entertainer’s barrel of hits.
From the first notes to the last, Urban showed why he is one of the best live performers of any musical genre. The night featured a host of his #1s, including “Somewhere In My Car,” “Somebody Like You,” “Blue Ain’t Your Color" and “Wasted Time,” as well as songs never played before, and some not played live in nearly a decade. The fast-paced, immersive experience also clearly showed why Urban is considered one of the best guitarists of this generation.
This year will not only see the release of new music from Urban, including a new studio album, but the launch of a new Las Vegas residency that premiered this March at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Urban also plans to perform at numerous fairs and festivals throughout the country.
The all-new Vegas residency premiered on March 3, 2023 and includes 16 performances in March, June and July. The shows are highlighted by a new set-list that features never-before-performed songs, as well as hits like “God Whispered Your Name,” “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” “Wasted Time,” “Somebody Like You,” “Long Hot Summer,” and “One Too Many,” Urban’s 43rd Top 10 single that garnered over 100 million Spotify streams. The past year (2022) was highlighted by Urban’s massive THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR 2022 – a critically hailed amphitheater and arena tour that had critics calling Urban “awe inspiring,” “the entertainer of a generation,” and “one of the finest axe players to walk the planet.” As to the show? “A utopian experience,” said one reviewer.
In addition, 2022 brought new music. The semi-autobiographical, fist-pumping, arena-ready track “Wild Hearts” and Urban’s current single, “Brown Eyes Baby.” Both came on the heels of “One Too Many” (his duet with P!nk), the last from The Speed of Now Part 1, which marked his fourth in an historic streak of simultaneous #1 album debuts in the United States, Canada and Australia.
The year served to remind music lovers around the globe why Urban is one of the world’s best live performers. His concerts have become legendary - as unpredictable as they are explosive. An experience of emotion, musical texture, energy and showmanship.
Urban’s musical virtuosity and fluidity has made him the musician’s musician. He’s collaborated with a diverse group of artists that include, among others; Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Mayer, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Dzeko, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and Vince Gill.
