Jake Owen opened for Keith Uban and we were pleasantly suprised. He was very energetic and did great job getting the crowd primed. Great interaction with the crowd, including bringing an older lady up on stage and dancing with her. Crowd ate it up.
I've seen Keith twice before but this was the first inside a coliseum style venue. The Allan War Memorial is an incredible venue and would be willling to see anyone there. Sound was perfect and wouldnt be a bad seat in the entire place. Keith was incredible, even by his tough standards that he has set with each show. Great variety of his hits from all albums. Was a little suprised that the show was dominate on his new songs from 'Get Closer' but refreshing at same time. Stage effects were great and the HUGE HD monitor behind him helping with pictures, especially for those with seats that were far away. Ketih let the crowds come up to stage and hang out. He came into the crowd twice and my wife got to touch him both times!! (thanks Keith, just for that now I have to cut up my wifes food and brush her teeth for her since she refuses to do anything that will get her hands wet!! joking!!) He signed a guitar and gave it to a lady in the back of the arena, so if you are buying tickets, pick your seats wisely!! Aim for a seat close to an isle.lol. The band did a fantastic job and they were very tight. Great experience overall, with the show and the coliseum!!!!!!!

I was just reading the reviews here and went to the U-Tube video. I had to laugh......evidently you that thought he was off the whole concert are not use to a performer not singing a song exactly as it was recorded. He was throwing in different runs through out that song but nothing was THAT off key. I would like to see you get up there and sing an entire set with out being a little off once in awhile. I didn't hear the note you thought was off at the 1:28 he was just adding a little different run to the tune (hint he didn't sing it exactly as it was recorded). I have been going to Keith's shows for 15 or more years. Who is to say he hadn't done 5 shows in the last few days and his voice was a little tired. I know my gives out after using it too much. At least he doesn't use the voice correctors or lip sing like a lot of the big names do........

you got that right...I'm a HUGE fan. what you DONT have right was that he was off the entire performance. what have you been smokin' man? or do you just have a habit of exaggerating?
"off the entire performance" HAHAHA hey everyone...check out the YouTube video of his LIVE performance and see for yourself if he was off the ENTIRE performance. read the comments below. even they agree he hit a bad note at 1:28 or so.....big deal.

you're a fan...more power to you. Im not completly unbias on my favs either. Doesnt change the fact that Urban was off key the entire performance.

Hooterville - it must have not been Keith Urban you were watching perform...or perhaps it was your $29 b&w pawn shop TV, because we all watched that performance at the Daytona 500 and he sounded GREAT!
Boring songs??? he performed 3 hits!! he played two of his most famous from his past album and followed that up with "Sweet Thing", which is his first single from the new "Defying Gravity" album that comes out tomorrow. I don't think Keith Urban even has any boring songs. i've been to 4 Keith Urban concerts and can't wait to see him this summer.
I'm not being bias, but you have it totally wrong, Hooterville. Keith Urban is one of the greatest singers/guitar players there is.

Did you watch Urban at the Daytona 500? That had to be one of the most pathetic performances ive ever seen. He was off-key the ENTIRE time...and what boring songs. I would say it was even worse than the Springsteen at the Super Bowl

Even better than when I saw him in June 2005. His band is absolutely perfect, as was Keith's voice. Venue seating sucked, but performance made up for it. I would go see him every week if I had the opportunity. My boyfriend compared this concert to seeing Tom Petty, etc, and listed it as one of his favorite concerts ever--and he only thought I liked Keith for his looks! Go see Keith and logon to keithurban.net!

Keith was awesome! For those of you who do not consider yourself country fans, or guys who have a girlfriend who likes Keith and you think it is only because of his looks, this is a rock guitar show too! He plays the guitar like a rock star, sometimes until he falls over on his back and plays laying down! His band is SOOO talented. Very fun show, sang almost all hits, a couple covers, no "new music" to bore people with. Best show I've seen in a long time, and I usually only attend rock concerts.
