Keith Urban Wins Billboard Award, Brings Fans To Australia

Jessica Phillips  |  November 13, 2009

Keith Urban, along with partners KC Masterpiece and Kingsford, won Billboard's Concert Marketing and Promotion Award, for his "Escape Together World Tour." The partners created some unique experiences for Keith's fans on his tour, including the "Keith Urban Backstage BBQ Experience," a VIP pre-show event where fans have been able to eat BBQ and get a special pre-show concert from Keith. World champion pitmaster Chris Lilly created special recipes especially for the BBQ experience.

As Keith gets ready to escape the US and head Down Under for a string of shows and an appearance at the ARIA awards, he's planning on taking two fans with him. Thanks to his tour sponsors, a Keith Urban fan (and a friend) will get the chance to travel to Australia to see Keith in concert. Using Verizon's V-Cast Live, fans can sign up to create a green screen video. Fans will vote on the videos and narrow them down to three finalists, based on the creativity, originality, and energy of the videos.

The finalists will then be voted on until a winner is chosen. The grand prize includes a four-day, three-night trip for two to Sydney, Australia, a hotel stay, 2 tickets to Keith Urban's concert at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, and $500.00 spending cash.
