Keith Urban is heading to the Land Down Under in December, and he’s taking Carrie Underwood with him. The two superstars are joining forces for the final 2016 leg of Keith’s Ripcord Tour in Australia.
“We are announcing officially that we are coming to Australia,” Keith says in the video clip. “And we’re also going to come to New Zealand, so if you’re watching from New Zealand, come on down and see us in Wellington.”

The nine-date tour will kick off on Dec. 3 in Wellington, New Zealand, wrapping on Dec. 17 in Brisbane, Australia. This is not unfamiliar territory for the traveling duo as Keith and Carrie co-headlined their Love Pain & the Whole Crazy Carnival Ride Tour in 2008, have performed together countless times and even recorded the song, “The Fighter,” together for Keith’s Ripcord album.
The tour comes right on the heels of the fall leg of Carrie’s Storyteller Tour, which wraps on Nov. 28 in West Valley City, Utah, while Keith will wrap up his year in Nashville, headlining the city’s New Year’s Eve Celebration before heading out in June 2017 for an extended leg of his very successful Ripcord Tour.
