Keith Urban (Photo: Jason Kempin)Need a laugh to get over the Wednesday "hump"? Country sensation and American Idol judge Keith Urban has that for you, along with the welcome announcement of his 2013 North American tour dates. Instead of merely issuing a press release or anything boring like that, Urban and his tourmates--Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch--have a special video serenade for fans that's sure to get a few smiles.
The video starts out with "Holiday Road" playing from the classic comedy National Lampoon's Vacation, and then shows Urban, Lynch, and LBT packing into a car, with the premise they'll be driving to each tour stop. That's when the craziness begins. To amuse themselves during the drive, the musicians burst into renditions of a truly staggering variety of tunes.
Some of the artists covered? Poison, Bon Jovi, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, Culture Club, Snoop and Dr. Dre...oh yeah, and that most famous singalong by Queen (I'm sure you know which one I mean). It must simply be seen--er, heard--to be believed, and if you aren't laughing by the end, you have to be in one foul mood!
Urban, Lynch, and LBT will kick the 2013 tour off July 18 in Cincinnati, and travel to 25 cities before wrapping things up October 5 in West Palm Beach, Florida. See a full list of dates and cities here.
