Ticket alert: Keith Urban, June 18 at Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre

Ticket alert: Country star, @AmericanIdol judge Keith Urban pulls "RipCORD" tour June 18 at @PerfectVodka

Charming but quiet "American Idol" judge Keith Urban will be making plenty of noise this summer when he brings his "RipCORD" tour to Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre.

Tickets for the Australian country star's June 18 stop in West Palm Beach will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, April 1, via LiveNation.com and KeithUrban.net and will cost $25-$59.75. (Presale tickets, available to fan club members on Urban's website, went on sale Tuesday morning at 10 a.m.)

Urban's visit is in support of his imminent eighth album, "RipCORD," out May 6, a star-studded collection of nostalgia-leaning pop-country with contributions by Nile Rodgers (guitar on "Sun Don't Let Me Down"). That banjo-driven love track also benefits from an unlikely contributor, Miami rapper Pitbull, who lends a "mischievous, sexy swagger" with his rap verse, he told Rolling Stone in an interview this month.

On Tuesday, Urban released "Wasted Time," his third single from the new album, a nostalgic, up-tempo pop meditation on the singer's younger years. Perhaps in defiance of the single's title, Urban will waste little time when he performs the song Thursday night on "American Idol."

Urban will begin the "RipCORD" tour June 2, with Nashville's Brett Eldredge and rising pop-folk singer Maren Morris opening for him on the road. The tour will wrap Nov. 19.
