Keith Urban has announced that he will be heading out on the road later this year on the RipCORD World Tour 2016!

“It’s the greatest show ending on earth that I’ve ever heard,” the 48-year-old country singer said in a statement (via The Tennessean). “That might be my next move.”

“I’m always trying to work more on how to connect and how to do things more intimately in that large setting,” Keith added. “[I want to] bring in some other elements to the show musically that are different than what we’ve done before, [think about] how to incorporate some of the old material in a new way, potentially reaching into some album tracks from way back.”

Keith Urban's Dad Dies After Long Battle with Cancer

Keith Urban‘s father Robert has passed away after a long battle with cancer.

“I’ve been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that [Nicole Kidman] and I, and our family, have received since my Dad’s passing on Saturday night,” the 48-year-old country star said in a statement (via Us Weekly). “His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace.”

“My dad’s love of country music and America set me on my life’s journey, and shaped so much of who I am today,” Keith added. “Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers.”

The sad news comes just days after Keith revealed his dad was in hospice care.

Our thoughts are with Keith, Nicole, and their entire family during this time.

Keith Urban Reveals His Dad Is In Hospice Care & Only Has a Few Weeks Left to Live

Keith Urban has just sadly revealed that his father Robert is in hospice care and only has a few weeks left to live.

“He’s probably only got a few weeks, if that. I’ve just been dealing with that the last couple of days. This has all come at a very strange time where it’s typical of a career that has extreme highs and extreme lows all often at the exact same time,” Keith, 48, told The Tennessean at the Country Music Hall of Fame earlier in the week. “So [the exhibit] is bittersweet a little bit because [my dad] is the catalyst for all of this. My dad is the catalyst for me living in America.”

Keith said his dad inspired him to buy a Don Williams album, which launched his path to stardom.

“I said, ‘How do you know it’s going to be good?’ He said, ‘It’s Don Williams,’” Keith continued. “It hit me in such a way that I thought, ‘I want to make those kinds of records, that people know are going to be solid and they go out and get it.’ I want to thank Dad for starting me on this journey.”
