The tour comes in support of the Australian-born singer’s sixth studio CD, Get Closer, which was released in October 2010. The album follows two previous consecutive Billboard country and pop #1 albums, as well as five previous CDs, all of which have been certified platinum or multi-platinum. His last effort, 2009’s Defying Gravity, produced five  hits, including chart-toppers Sweet Thing and Only You Can Love Me This Way, bringing his total of No. 1 songs to 11.

Critics have called Urban’s shows one of the best reasons in the world to attend a live concert. Urban’s catalogue of hits including Better Life, Somebody Like You, Days Go By, You’ll Think Of Me, Sweet Thing and his latest, Without You, combined with an all new production will give his fans a concert experience that has earned Urban a reputation as one of music’s best live performers.

The Band Perry, consisting of sister Kimberly and brothers Neil and Reid, launched its country music career in 2009 and hit paydirt with its second single, If I Die Young, which went to No. 1 on the country music charts in summer 2010.

Tickets for the Sept. 24 show go on sale 10 a.m. on June 17 at the SOEC Box office, the Wine Country Visitor Centre or by phone at 1-877-763-2849.
