If you’re heading to a Keith Urban show in the near future, you may want to stay afterward.
Urban is getting a reputation for staying on stage long after the majority of the audience has gone home.
“Without the audience, it’s just one long sound check,” Keith told One Country and other media outlets at the No. 1 party for “Wasted Time.” “The audience has so much power to make or break a show. We as a performer can only do so much. On this tour — especially — I’ve watched the audience, night after night after night just give so much to me on stage. When that happens, you can play forever. If you didn’t have curfews.”
Yep, venues have rules (and sometimes laws) that require an artist to stop playing by a certain time. But those haven’t kept Keith from coming off stage. He’s been caught staying out and signing autographs and taking selfies with the few fans to stay behind.
“When you want to go to a concert it’s a big deal,” Keith said. “It’s not like going to the movies. Parking, babysitters, are we going to car pool? Tickets are will call, so we need to get there two hours before to line up. It’s a big, big deal. All the expenses, it goes through the roof. My want is to give them the greatest night and give everything I’ve got.”
