Fresh from rehab and happy to be living a “healthier lifestyle”, country singer Keith Urban is pulling a page from Al Gore’s book and running his entire U.S. tour on bio-diesel.
Apparently, Keith experiment with bio-diesel started earlier this year; while playing to packed houses in the U.K., Germany and other locales around Europe. From the article,
“‘Iâ€™m ready. So far the tour has been incredible â€“ fantastic crowds â€“ a great vibe.,’ says 40-year-old country music cowboy, according to Westwood One. ‘I canâ€™t wait to get back to America.â€ During his 30-city North American tour for his latest album Love, Pain & the whole crazy, Urbanâ€™s entourage will include miles of cable and thousands of pounds of machinery that will be running on Bio-Diesel. ‘Iâ€™m especially proud to be able to do what we can for the environment,’ says Urban.”
No word yet on where Keith is sourcing his bio-diesel from or if there will be other green initiatives to reduce the footprint of his tour. A great first step nonetheless to promoting alternative fuels and making summer music that much greener.
