ustralia and Central Alberta must feel interchangeable to country-music icon Keith Urban at the moment, because it felt like a homecoming on Saturday night.
It’s been just 737 days since Urban cut the ribbon to Rogers Place with the venue’s first-ever concert back on September 16, 2016. Tonight, he walks out its doors as the only performer to have played the venue on two separate tours in its short existence, this time treating a packed country-craving crowd to a stop on his GRAFFITI U World Tour 2018.
There’s not many that know him like Edmonton, and not many that know Edmonton quite like him.
Urban excels at keeping his show branded with old-school country vibes, while injecting a new artistic, “graffiti-themed” performance that becomes apparent in his tenth studio album Graffiti U with songs like ‘Love The Way It Hurts (So Good)’ and the pop-inspired, party-starting track ‘Never Comin Down’.
