Okay, I'm not good at concert reviews, but since no one else has said anything yet I might as well put my two cents in!

Keith went on after Luke Bryan, Gary Allan, and Leann Rimes... and BOY did he ROCK! It was my 5th time seeing Keith over the past 4 years or so and this was the best I have ever seen him- despite the fact that he wasn't headlining the tour!!! The stadium was packed and ready for Keith by the time he came on. In fact, I think I had just as many Keith fans sitting around me as Kenny fans!

Keith's setlist included (but not in this order)-

who wouldn't wanna be me
you're my better half
better life
you'll think of me
where the blacktop ends
somebody like you
you look good in my shirt
days go by
raining on sunday
once in a lifetime
i told you so
stupid boy

...and the whole show went by way too quickly! Keith came out wearing a bright red tshirt which was a shocker to me, every other time I had seen him he was wearing black! So this was pretty exciting, haha! My favorite part came when he sang you look good in my shirt (always been my favorite song- but it seems like it's everyone's favorite now that it plays on the radio!) and the new(ish) live version of better half. Another highlight came when they showed Nicole Kidman sitting on sidestage- the day before the show happened to be her birthday so Keith made an announcement and the entire stadium sang 'Happy Birthday' to Nicole. She looked very happy! Not to mention very pretty as usual. I want to say Keith's set lasted about an hour and a half... not sure exactly how long it was though.

Keith came out during Kenny's set wearing a light blue tshirt (goodness did he look HOT!) and sang Take it to the Limit with Kenny. Keith was introduced as one of Kenny's best friends, and at the end of the song Kenny gave Keith the biggest hug, it was precious!

Like I said, I'm not very good at concert reviews, so this is just about as best as I can make it. Hopefully someone else can add on here!

Hi...I'm a newbie to the board and I'm a longtime Keith Urban fan who saw my first concert at Soldier Field!! I was ECSTATIC!! Keith was amazing!

I was in section G on the field about 2/3 back. I didn't see much on stage...just the jumbotron.

Judy, I am pretty sure she was on the right side of stage, juuust far enough back where she couldn't easily be seen in person. She came out a little further when we sang Happy Birthday though.

Great review and very accurate. I was there, but way back. Thank goodness for the HUGE video screens. I thought Keith was outstanding, as usual. I loved when Keith came out and sang with Kenny, but I would have loved more of them together. I loved the fact that we got to sing Happy Birthday to Nicole! That was awesome! Definately something to remember for a long time!

Thanks heaps for the review - we saw the happy birthday thing briefly on the news- that would have been cool to be a part of

I love the fact that he is not the main act and still obviously gives it a red hot go - he and Kenny are obviously great mates

Thanks so much somebodylikeKU for taking the time to post your review...It is so very much appreciated....It makes me sad that not many fans take the time to post concert reviews or BSE anymore....I love seeing photos but I love love to hear a fan's first-hand account and feel their excitement at just being there!!!!! So once again, somebodylikeKU,
[thankyou] [thankyou] [thankyou]

Hey all,
I just joined this site, and this was my first Keith concert. OMG, and will not be my last. i'm trying to figure out now how to go again. I've always loved his voice and songs, but had no idea how good he is at guitar. I love guitar solos and this man is amazing. I've seen the videos and tv performances, but until he plays right infront of you and the sweat is dripping from his body as he hit chords you never expected....it is amazing. and the man can thump...(thump-plays guitar like the piano). ok, I'm getting all excited again...

ohhh, I was in the right sandbar and CRod gave me his wrist band. That was really exciting. I was hoping someone had a pics of it. It was right after they took their bow. He took it off and walked right over to me....
