Keith Urban had lots of surprises last night when he played a pop-up show at Nashville's Exit/In.

He revealed his plans for a new album and tour in 2018, both called "GRAFFITI U".

This will be Urban's ninth studio album and the follow-up to his platinum selling "Ripcord" that brought hits like "Blue Ain't Your Color", "The Fighter" and "Wasted Time."

A release date for "GRAFFITI U" was not announced.

The other big news was that Keith will be embarking on a World Tour which will kick off June 15 in St. Louis and will wrap up in November. Kelsea Ballerini will provide direct tour support.

The complete tour is listed below. And as you can see, he's coming to Louisiana as the second-to-last date on the trek will be at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Friday, November 2nd.

We'll keep you updated as to when those tickets go on sale and of course you know we'll have the free ones for you!
