Keith Urban Gets Creative and Shirtless for Ripcord World Tour

Keith Urban Gets Creative and Shirtless for Ripcord World Tour

The music business is a crazy and competitive world and artists are constantly being challenged with developing new ways to market themselves, their music and their tours. Props to Keith Urban for utilizing one of his favorite forms of artistic expression—tattoos—to promote his upcoming Ripcord World Tour.

In a new video, Keith not only gets “inked” with the tour dates, he gets an impressive piece of art on one of the bare spots on his bare torso.

Pay close attention though. The artist, designer Jody Steel, isn’t actually tattooing Keith, but is instead using markers for this living, breathing tour poster. Jody, an artist from Los Angeles, uses body paints and markers to create lifelike, but not necessarily permanent, body art.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
