Re: Larkin Fan you still around here?
A little late with my reply *okay, a lot late*, but it was AWESOME!!!
I see myself as being a life long Keith Urban fan. I may someday be one of these crazy fanatical old women that follow him all over the country. As long as he performs, I'll be there to listen.
The Palace theatre was an awesome show. I don't know how he does it, but he just keeps getting better and better with every show. He had to whole place eating out of the palm of his hand. He seemed to really enjoy being back in Louisville, he mentioned Coyotes several times. "I played there about 7 years ago when I was a member of the Ranch, and I think about 6 people showed up. I want to thank those 6 people for spreading the word."
My favorite part of the concert was during Blacktop he jumped off stage and went up the aisle out into the lobby and climbed the steps to the balcony without missing a beat. When he got back he said "Wow, you Louisville people are really friendly..... I think my clothes have been stretched 3 sizes."
His acoustic set was better than ever. Homespun Love was wilder than ever, I don't know how he doesn't break his guitar. He played Raining on Sunday with more passion than I had ever heard. 'Shirt' is one of my favorites and he played most of it sitting down or laying down on stage. LOL. You'll Think of Me is a showstopper. Tonight I Wanna Cry on the piano was great, he seemed less nervous playing the piano than he did in Cincinnati. She's Gotta Be was WOW again, but different than in Cincinnati. It amazed me how he doesn't play the songs exactly the same each time, he just kinda wings it and each time the results are amazing. It must be scary in a way to have that much talent.
It's really cool to take along someone for the first time and see their face when he "lets loose" on the guitar. Of course, if she's a female, to see the dreamy look on her face during Your Everything and Making Memories of Us is priceless.
Did you hear that they filmed his last two concerts for a live DVD? I can't wait to get my hands on that. BTW, you mentioned that he plays piano on the 1991 version of Clutterbilly, how did you know about that? I told my friend that and she said I was confused. That some guy *cannot for the life of me remember his name* played on that song. Where did you get your info. I'd love to prove my friend wrong.
OOps almost forgot.....The coolest thing I've ever seen at ANY concert is when he came out and played gango and sang backup for Katrina on her song No End in Sight. I've never seen a headliner do that before. Did he do that at Cleveland? He just came out and didn't try upstage her in anyway, he was just part of the band. I heard he started doing that so people wouldn't make a mass exodus to the concessions or bathroom near the end of her set. Is he a great guy or what?
Hey, are we the only two Keith Urban concert attendees on this board? If so, these people don't know what they are missing.
Talk to you later
