After a spring spent in a judge’s chair on American IdolKeith Urban is getting back on the road this summer for a trek he’s named the Raise ‘Em Up Tour.

The tour begins July 12 at the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Alberta and runs through Sept. 13 in Puyallup, Washington.

Brett Eldredge and Jerrod Niemann will join Urban on the Raise ‘Em Up Tour. The new tour will also feature an all-new stage production and music not performed on Urban’s previous Light the Fuse Tour, which wrapped up in February.

“The Raise Em Up Tour will be a complete build from the sky down,” said Urban in a press statement. “New staging, new production, a lot more songs from FUSE that the fans have been requesting, a different mix of previous hits, and some rarities from past albums that we haven’t played in a while if ever!! And we’ll be sharing the stage with Brett (Eldridge) and Jerrod (Niemann) both with killer new albums!!!!!”

According to Urban’s website, Urban will be performing in Australia in June (after the Idol finale, which will likely take place in May). He then plays twice in Canada (July 12-13) before heading to the U.S. for a show July 18 at Jamboree in the Hills in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Additional cities Urban is playing this time include Boston, St. Louis, Hartford, Charlotte, Denver, Irvine and Sacramento (see the full list of Raise ‘Em Up tour dates on
