Keith Urban to Return to the Stage Post-Surgery for Charity Show
One night before Keith Urban's concert on Feb. 11 in San Antonio, Texas, the singer will give his as-of-now first public performance since undergoing surgery in late November. KWTX in Austin, Texas reports that an event called 'Date Night With Keith Urban' is scheduled for Feb. 10.
The show -- at the Austin City Limits Moody Theater -- is a fundraiser for the Beyond Batten Disease Foundation. Batten disease is a juvenile form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLS), a group of rare, inherited disorders of the nerve cells. Balcony seats and VIP Packages are still available at the Beyond Batten Disease website.
The Feb. 11 show in San Antonio is the only other winter show listed at Urban's website. In fact, only five dates are listed total, but the superstar will no doubt be filling out his calendar, assuming all went well with the surgery to remove a polyp from his vocal chord. He's also set to star on the Australian version of 'The Voice,' serving the same role Blake Shelton fills on NBC. Urban's television gig will begin in early 2012.
