I love him. He's an amazing singer, musician and songwriter. He also seems like a really nice, down to earth guy. What's not to love?

Top 3 show that I've seen in the last 30 years. Keith is a great performer that leaves nothing on the table when he's done. He played every song old and new that you could ever want to hear from him and did it with an energy that few could match after almost 3 hours. While his voice gave out over the last couple songs the crowd more than carried him which he seemed to enjoy immensely. Just watching (how into the music) and listening (to them sing) you can see a very special connection between audience and band. What a great night, a great performer, a great band and a great crowd. That concert will be hard to beat.

Pop and rap artists tend towards narcissism. Country is down to earth. Favorite Keith Urban song, "It's a Love Thing." (#51 in his itunes library)

Keith should thank god for Hair plugs and make up! He hasn't wrote a great song in 10 years . Can you say cruising along ...

Keith Urban's music changed my life, his live concerts are the best, loved your review spot on, and hands down he should win EOTY no question about it....

I've been at a lot of the big country concerts here this year (Sugarland, Big & Rich, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood etc.) but it would be hard to top this one. Perfect end to a "long hot summer".

So disappointed that I had to miss this concert. Very impressed, though, that I didn't have to read the usual negative review! Thanks for giving an actual rundown of the concert in a positive light for a change.

It was once again proven to me that the Target Center is a very poor concert venue. The echo coming off the high back wall was so bad. I do agree though, the concert was off the hook and I don't/didn't know who KU even was. (I don't pay much attention to CW music but listen on occasion.) come on TC, hang some sound absorption curtains on the walls. Cheap.

Steelman, Were you at the concert? We saw three hours of energy, humor, heart, soul, and talent. I don't think Keith claims to be the greatest songwriter on the planet. But, for a large venue, I don't think I have ever seen a performer connect with the audience the way he did. What a performance!! I am glad I was there!
