Keith Urban Gets Closer With Fans

(Gibson) 300 fans, friends and industry insiders convened at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium yesterday afternoon for a sneak peek at Keith Urban's upcoming Get Closer tour.

The show provided an inside look at a band midway through rehearsals for a massive stage show. Before the performance, Urban sat on a stool at the front of the stage and spoke with the audience about the show. "We've never done this before," he confessed. "I'm a bit nervous."

The performance was a truncated version of the show the group is taking on the road next week. Entering to the strains of The Beatles' "A Day in the Life," Urban and his four-piece backing band tore into "Put You in a Song," from the Aussie's 2010 album, Get Closer. The group then played 90 minutes of other Get Closer tracks mixed with fan favorites from the past decade. Highlights included the tender "Making Memories of Us," a foot-stomping take of "You Look Good in My Shirt" and a center-of-the-arena-roundabout performance of his hit, "You'll Think of Me." The show also featured mash-ups with video performances by Little Big Town and vintage Waylon Jennings, and a rocking "Days Go By" medley that included snatches of U2, Tom Petty and AC/DC. more on this story
