Country star Keith Urban has announced his first US tour dates since undergoing treatment for alcohol abuse. The singer, who is married to actress Nicole Kidman, checked into California's Betty Ford Clinic in October (06) for 90 days of rehab, but he's now keen to cement his recovery by playing songs from his 2006 album LOVE PAIN + THE WHOLE CRAZY THING live across North America. The 33-date tour will begin in Phoenix, Arizona on 8 June (07). Urban says, "I'm looking forward to getting back on the road, to reconnecting with everyone and to doing what it is that I love to do. To finally be able to present the songs from Love Pain + The Whole Crazy Thing live is something that I've been looking forward to doing since recording the album."
