Keith Urban 8.6.11

Last night I went to see Keith Urban in concert for the fourth time, so I thought I'd share a few of the 200 or so pictures I took to mark the occasion. :)

Jake Owen was the opening act, and he was fantastic - high energy, great live performance.


And now for the main attraction:


And then things got really interesting...it's going to be hard to top this concert, since my seat was so fabulous I got this close:


It was after this set that Keith left the stage and walked right in front of me. RIGHT. IN. FRONT. OF. ME. I freakin' touched Keith Urban. True story. (And then it happened AGAIN!)


It's quite fitting, really, that this is called the Get Closer tour, since I got close to Keith not once, but TWICE. And I am here to testify that up close and personal and dripping with sweat, Keith is still freakishly perfect. (Nicole and daughter Sunday Rose were in attendance last night, but I have no idea where they actually were in the arena.)

Since this is my fourth KU concert (trust me people, this nevr gets old), there's really not much I can say that hasn't already been said about Keith, his band, or the whole concert experience. He and his team go above and beyond and literally pour themselves out  on the stage, a study in excellence and artistry and watching someone do what they love and do it well. Being a part of that is an incredible high. :)

I'll leave you with a little Jake and Keith:

Jake Owen - "Barefoot Blue Jean Night"



Keith Urban - "'Til Summer Comes Around"

Cool...good for you, Ruth! Lucky you getting such great seats. This reminds me of the Chris Botti concert when he played right in front of us.

Ruth said...

@Lori - Thanks! I had so much fun! :) And you are not kidding - Botti right in front of us at the Ryman, that was AMAZING!

Awesome, Ruth! I cracked up, once again, at your use of capital letters and italics. :)

Keith is definitely one my favorites--he and Nicole are one of the joys of red carpet shows.

Do you have a favorite song? Mine is....I think...I can't pick =D

Ruth said...

@Kristin - I can't help myself. :)

@Ella - Oh I just love seeing the two of them together! I don't know that I can pick an all-time favorite - off the latest album, Get Closer, my "current" fav is probably "You Gonna Fly."
