Urban Joined by Wariner on Ryman Stage
Keith Urban performed publicly for the first time (Fri., Feb. 3) since his vocal surgery on the 61-year-old Ryman stage for the final time before it was taken out for replacement the following morning.
Urban played his latest single, “Long Hot Summer,” with a string quartet, then went into “Making Memories of Us,” sitting on a monitor at the front of the stage with no amplification. “You Gonna’ Fly” was followed by an encore featuring “Somebody Like You.”
Steve Wariner was set to close the show, and as he began, he called Urban back on stage to join him on “Let My Guitar Do The Talking.”
