“Working on the setlist for tour and decided to call a few friends for suggestions. There’s no one better out there to help than all of YOU,” he captioned the post.

Urban was forced to reschedule the Australian leg of his upcoming world tour due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings and interstate travel.
Urban shared the news via Facebook: “I just want to let you know from me personally, that we just got word that our Speed Of Now world tour is unable to come to Australia this December due to potential travel restrictions, COVID issues, capacity issues. I’m so sorry, guys. I’ve been psyched to come and play for so long. We are going to have to push our tour off to December 2022. But we are going to bring it in 2022.”
He added, “I want to say thank you to every one of you for your patience, your passion. Every one of you that has bought tickets, you can hang on to those for next December … On behalf of my band, my crew and all of us, we are so sorry, but we will be bringing it and I’ll be seeing you guys very, very soon.”
Originally scheduled for December 2021, The Speed Of Now was to serve as Urban’s first tour of the country since December of 2019, and his first headline show since earlier in 2020.
