Tim McGraw, Keith Urban Visit Canadaís Cowboys

Published: 2005-02-08
More proof that the prairies find joy in living up to their cowboy stereotype comes in the fact that Tim McGraw's only confirmed Canadian tour dates of 2005 fall on the flatlands. The cowboy hat wearing singer won't hit this country until the far-off month of July, but odds are tickets for his stadium show will sell out fairly quickly. Ticketmaster.ca is doing the selling, with prices ranging between $80 and $90.

Mr. Faith Hill is touring North America in order to promote his latest disc "Live Like You Were Dying"; the single of the same name (a tribute to McGraw's late father) is currently a staple on country radio. Featuring plenty of tracks (16 to be exact), "Live Like You Were Dying" is McGraw's eighth studio album.

A bit more broad-minded a country artist is Australian native Keith Urban, who will reach past the prairies and perform a few shows in Ontario this April. Urban's world tour starts on February 17th with 10 dates Down Under, followed by two months in North America and a few days in the UK. He'll hit 11 Canadian cities along the way (and visit the Junos), all in support of his November 2004 album "Be Here".

Keith Urban's upcoming performances:

March 26 Vancouver, BC - Orpheum Theatre
March 28 Red Deer, AB - Centrium
March 29 Grande Prairie, AB - Grande Prairie Arena
March 31 Calgary, AB - Pengrowth Saddledome
