Keith Urban to Debut New Stage Production on Upcoming Tour
Keith Urban chatted with 97.3 The Dawg about his upcoming summer tour, which is going to be full of exciting new surprises and lots of things fans have not seen before. Urban is giving fans more bang for their hard-earned buck by coming up with a creative new stage show and production.
"I've been touring a lot, for 21 years, but so many people have been out to see us multiple times, sometimes on the same tour, so we want to change it up," Urban says. What a considerate superstar he is, working to give his fans more for their money by keeping things fresh. "It's going to be a new stage, new production, lots of new songs," Urban reveals. "Jake Owen is coming out on the American leg and there will be new moments, with us being out in the audience and other things people haven't seen before."
Urban said that he generally sticks to a set list while on tour, but that he will also indulge a spontaneous impulse. "It depends on the moment. I try to be in the moment," he says; And if that moment dictates an impromptu improvisation, Urban will just go with it.
Urban also said that he has spent 20 years living in Nashville and that it has became a true home for him since "both of our girls were born there." The father of two beautiful daughters with actress wife Nicole Kidman said that his favorite part of fatherhood is not changing soiled diapers, but driving in the car and singing with them!
Urban has another "baby" in the form of his Fender Telecaster guitar, which he's had for 22 years. While many musicians give their axes a female name, Urban's is christened "Clarence." He says, "I am not into naming my guitars, but I called it that after the angel in 'It's a Wonderful Life' [because] I wondered what life would be like without that guitar."
When Urban eventually met Leo Fender, who made the guitars, he found out his real name was Clarence. Touche!
