Keith Urban Bids Farewell to ‘Light the Fuse’ in Nashville

On Saturday, Keith Urban wrapped his Light the Fuse tour in Nashville with tour mates Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch, but those weren’t the only special guests. Eric Church and the legendary Peter Frampton also joined Keith on stage in a mind-blowing concert that no one wanted to end…including Keith.

Starting at 7pm on the dot, Dustin Lynch took the stage to get the crowd on it’s feet. Dustin has great stage presence, and isn’t afraid to get handsy with the crowd. There was a lot of hand holding and running back and forth across the stage while he performed “She Cranks My Tractor” and “Wild In Your Smile.” The crowd sang along with his hit single “Cowboys and Angels.”

Thanks to a super-fast set change, Little Big Town took the stage in no time. If you haven’t seen these four perform live, you’re doing yourself a great disservice. They had plenty of hits to fill their hour long set, and then some. We were treated to “Little White Church,” “Tornado,” “Pontoon,” “Your Side of the Bed,” “Sober,” an incredible bluesy version of The Oak Ridge Boys’ “Elvira” and of course “Boondocks.” These four could literally entertain just by singing the phone book.

Finally, at 9pm, it was the moment we’d all been waiting for. And unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Keith took the stage almost like a stage hand, just walked out with the house lights still on and started playing banjo. Suddenly the band a appeared and the curtain dropped and the show was in full swing, and it stayed that way for 2 and a half hours.  He went into the crowd, called fans on stage, and was much more chatty than ever before.

Sprinkled between his hits were special guests. Eric Church joined Keith on stage to perform “Raise ‘Em Up.” Keith invited Karen Fairchild to the stage to help him perform “We Were Us.” As a very special surprise, Peter Frampton joined Keith on stage to perform The Beatles tune, “Get Back.”

For the encore Keith decided to “wing it” and perform several songs on the piano and “Making Memories of Us” on his acoustic dedicating it to his wife who couldn’t be there.

It was an unbelievable night of great music. Keith was extra chatty and seemed to really enjoy performing his last show of the tour.

After the show, he hopped a plane to Morocco to visit with his wife Nicole Kidman who’s filming a movie there before heading to Los Angeles for “American Idol.”

    That was one of the most amazing shows of Keith’s I have ever been to! The surprises, the energy level, the spontaneity! So much fun and Keith is truly a premier entertainer! I was so happy that he did so many songs from FUSE, plus songs from every CD (except the first one)I truly love this CD.
