Keith Urban is gearing up to play a few more shows in Vegas! The country artist announced on Instagram on Tuesday morning (January 25) that “we’ve got five brand new shows being added to our Las Vegas residency...” later this year. “Keith Urban Live — Las Vegas” is coming back to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Five new, upcoming shows are set for March 25 through April 2, Urban announced. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale Monday, January 31 at 10 a.m. PT.

The announcement comes after Adele put her highly-anticipated residency on hold. Adele tearfully addressed fans in an emotional Instagram video when she announced the sudden postponement one day before she was set to kick off her Las Vegas residency.The “Easy On Me” singer was “gutted” and “so upset” to have to push her residency back because of COVID-19 and delivery delays. Making it up to fans, she called some ticket holders on FaceTime to thank them for “being so graceful to me.” Adele has also assured that all dates would be rescheduled and more information would be announced soon.

“Urban is one of the world's most electrifying live performers in music today,” Caesars reads. “His concerts are critically hailed the world over and feature many of his 24 chart-topping songs including Graffiti U's, ‘Coming Home,’ Ripcord's ‘Wasted Time,’ his mega hit ‘Blue Ain't Your Color,’ and seminal No. 1’s… Never knowing what will happen next, crowds have seen Urban performing with fans, with special guests, giving away used show guitars and performing solos perched atop audience seating.” Fans can find more information about the award-winning singer-songwriter’s Las Vegas residency here.

Urban has previously played the residency at the Colosseum, including several dates in September. Around that time, he told Rolling Stone that the three-in-one venue was the “tipping point” that attracted him to the Colosseum: “You’ve got an arena stage that truly is, I mean the production you can put on a stage is massive. You’ve got a lot of theater seating and a theater vibe, but then you’ve also got this club happening down on the floor where everybody’s standing. It’s rowdy, it’s a raucous vibe. The three venues that I love playing the most are all in one place.”
