XL Concert Review: Keith Urban
Keith Urban brought his Ripcord World Tour to the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse Thursday, August 4th.
Overall, the concert was great. The openers, Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris kicked off the show with high energy performances. Maren Morris, who is new to the country music scene definitely didn't disappoint. Brett Eldredge was also a crowd pleaser. He even handed out roses to people in the front row during his performance.
Keith Urban took to the stage as if he was on a mission. He played hit after hit, and the crowd was going crazy. Every song that he sang sounded almost as good as it does when you hear it on the radio. He interacted with the crowd, and had them singing along to every song. He even went to the back of the arena for a few songs to give people in the back a front row experience. Maren Morris and Brett Eldredge both joined him on stage for separate performances.
Some highlights from the concert
1. Keith Urban grabbing a fan and pulling her onstage after asking what you call people from Bozeman. Thanks to Bozeman resident Melissa Smith, we now know that the correct term is "Bozemanite."
2. Brett Eldredge did an awesome cover of "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk.
3. Keith Urban's guitar playing skills. Almost every song that Keith played included a ripping guitar solo. Maybe that's why they call it the "Rip" cord World Tour. The guy can shred, that is all.
4. Brett Eldredge's Montana shirt. Brett explained to the crowd that he had been in town for four days leading up to the show. Apparently, he did a little shopping.
Overall, we give the concert a 9 out of 10. Keith and company definitely kept us entertained and on the edge of our seats.
