Promoters MICHAEL CHUGG and ROB POTTS said the show was sure to be the envy of many American fans.

``This is a double-bill that US audiences would kill for'' Chugg said.

``We're incredibly fortunate that these two artists' schedules have allowed us to bring them out to Australia - or in Keith's case, back to Australia - together on one tour,'' Potts said.

Rimes last toured Australia in 1997 after the success of her number one debut single Blue which she released at the age of 13.

Joining Rimes is Australia's own Urban who has become one of the biggest stars in the US music scene.
