In addition, Keith Urban will close the Concert Series with a headlining performance on June 13, 2020.
"We are thrilled to announce the return of the RBCxMusic Concert Series, with artist and producer duo The Chainsmokers and the reigning ACM Entertainer of The Year, Keith Urban," said Mary DePaoli, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, RBC.
