Keith Urban announces 2011 'Get Closer' tour


NASHVILLE (AP) - Keith Urban is trying to make his fans and his family happy with his touring schedule this summer.

The country star is hitting the road June 16 on a 44-city arena tour in the U.S. The schedule gives him time to be with his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, and their two-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose.

Urban told The Associated Press that he purposely structures his tour so he plays for two or three nights, then comes home for a few days before heading back out again.

The "Get Closer" tour starts in Mobile, Ala., and makes stops in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Nashville.

Urban plans to release international tour dates and opening acts later.
