Will Keith Urban Be Back To Judge American Idol Next Season?

Keith Urban's spotty slate of upcoming tour dates have led to rumors that the country star may be back for another round of judging American Idol.

The second leg of the New Zealand crooner's "Light the Fuse Tour" includes large gaps between shows, which has led to speculation about his plans for the talent program.

However, Urban has not confirmed those rumors:

"We haven't confirmed anything, but we needed to leave some holes there, in case another season happens. If we do another season, those would be where the audition cities would go. But nothing's confirmed at all."

He also explained that he has added a series of indoor shows: "I love playing indoors. I hate being at the mercy of the weather . . . I just feel like there's so much commonality that we're all under one roof."

Urban's "Light the Fuse" tour features support from Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.
