Country singer Urban ends rehab, plans tour


Country singer Keith Urban has ended a three-month stint in rehab for alcohol addiction, and his publicist said he is planning a world tour to promote his new album.

Urban, 39, and his wife of almost seven months, actress Nicole Kidman, attended a private party in Los Angeles following the Golden Globe Awards on Monday, People magazine reported. It quoted a spokesman as saying that Urban had been officially released from the undisclosed rehab facility.

Urban, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, entered rehab about two weeks before the November 7 release of his fourth studio album "Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing," which debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. pop charts. It is now No. 30.

In a statement, Urban's publicist said his world tour will begin in April with a short run of club shows in Britain and Germany. He will play arenas in his native Australia in May, and will launch the North American leg in June.
