Keith Urban Pays Tribute to Orlando Victims

Keith Urban returned to the road, and his ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016 this weekend, with a capacity crowd at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre – a performance that the Tampa Bay Times called “dazzling.” In fact, the paper went as far as to say, “you can thank the almighty for the mighty set Keith Urban laid down in Tampa last night.”

But towards the end of his two-hour plus performance Urban stopped to pay tribute to the victims of last weekend’s shooting in Orlando, by performing U2’s “One.”

“Although I didn’t know anybody in that horrific incident, I did, because they’re just guys and girls, brothers and sisters,” he said. “They had dreams, hopes, plans, just like every one of us.”
