Iowa State Fair announces first 2022 Grandstand act

The Iowa State Fair Grandstand Concert Series announced today that Keith Urban will bring his ” The Speed of Now World” Tour to the fair, with special guest Ingrid Andress, on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $45-$90.

“Every night is the first time we’ve played these songs for that audience, in that moment,” says Urban.  “It’s why every show is different – spontaneous and unpredictable – even for us. After two years, we’re finally gonna get the chance to play some of the new songs we haven’t done live before.  We’ll throw in a bunch of the songs that everyone comes to hear, a couple of which we’ll rework a bit, and it’s really gonna be tough to get us off the stage.”

The four-time GRAMMY® Award winner has set Summer ’22 for the North American debut of his first world tour in four years. For information on where to get tickets, visit
