Prior to the launch of his Graffiti U World Tour Australia, four-time GRAMMY Award winner and 2018 GRAMMY nominee, Keith Urban will give a special performance, ‘A Benefit Show for Rural Aid Drought Relief,’ to take place as part of the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival at Tamworth Town Hall. All ticket sales will go directly to Rural Aid, who provide a holistic support program to rural Australia, including those in NSW and most of Queensland who were hit hardest by the drought.
An established charity, Rural Aid was formed to provide assistance for the relief of poverty, illness, distress or disadvantage of individuals and families conducting primary production businesses that have been adversely affected by natural disasters. With record dry conditions, financial hardship brought on by the drought means money is needed for essential items.
Keith Urban said, “A no frills, no production, free form set list and all to help people who could really use it. It’s gonna be a blast playing the old Tamworth Town Hall!”
Way Too Long is the recently released new single from Urban’s chart-topping, Gold-certified album ‘GRAFFITI U’, which just this past week received a GRAMMY nomination for the song Parallel Line. He’s consistently topped the charts in Australia and the US over the last decade, amassing more than 22 million in album sales worldwide, with combined sales of 1.4 million albums in Australia.
A five-time ARIA Award winner, Urban also has a total of 14 ARIA Platinum selling singles and albums and recently hosted the 2018 ARIA Awards.
