Country superstar Keith Urban will make his debut at the Minnesota State Fair on Aug. 28. The “American Idol” judge is touring behind his 2013 album, “The Fuse.” He’s billing this as his Raise ‘Em Up Tour.
One of the most exciting concert performers in country, Urban last performed in the Twin Cities in January 2014 at Target Center. A four-time Grammy winner, he was named CMA entertainer of the year in 2005.
Opening the State Fair concert will be newcomer Kelsea Ballerini, 21, the voice of the hot country single “Love Me Like You Mean It.”
Tickets, priced at $64 and $49, will go on sale at 11 a.m. Thursday July 2 at etix.com and 1-800-514-3849.
The fair has yet to announce its lineup for its annual MN Music on a Stick, its final grandstand show for 2015.
