Keith Urban will help kick off Super Bowl XLV as part of the pregame festivities at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas on Sunday, February 6, the NFL and FOX Sports announced today. FOX Super Bowl Sunday Pre-Game coverage begins at 2:00 PM ET.
The appearance marks Keith’s return to North Texas where, just this past November, he rocked an audience of millions with an electrifying halftime performance at the Thanksgiving Day game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints.
Keith’s Super Bowl XLV performance will feature music from his recently released CD Get Closer, and will serve to kick off his just announced on-sale dates (to begin February 11) for his “Get Closer 2011 World Tour”, which will begin on June 16 in Mississippi.
More than 153 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history. The pregame show and Super Bowl XLV will be broadcast worldwide.
