The Keith Urban Ticket Hunt Giveaway

Keith Urban Performs At Van Andel Arena This Friday

SMG Grand Rapids will be holding a ticket hunt giveaway for Keith Urban tickets beginning at noon on Tuesday, July 19. A pair of tickets will be hidden somewhere downtown at an undisclosed location for a lucky winner to find and enjoy. Search parties need not look inside any downtown building as the tickets will be placed somewhere outside. The search area is defined by borders at the river going east to Division Ave. and Oakes St. going north to Michigan Ave.

Be sure to check the Van Andel Arena Facebook fan page tomorrow morning for clues about where the tickets will be hiding (Facebook.com). We encourage everyone to brave the heat and get out on their lunch hour to look for the tickets!

Winner(s) will be announced via the Van Andel Arena Facebook fan page and vanandelarena.com. No stone should go unturned, no lion should be tamed, no stage should go ignored and no seat should go unfilled. SMG Grand Rapids wishes all those Keith Urban fans the best of luck!
