In honor of his kickoff tonight, we take a look at photos of Keith throughout the years doing what he does best, performing for fans.
During the state memorial for Olivia Newton-John in Australia recently (2/26), Keith Urban joined many of her famous friends in sending a special video message. Others who sent messages included Dolly Parton, Nicole Kidman, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Pink, and Hugh Jackman.
Keith recalled first meeting Olivia in the late 1990s at a songwriting retreat. He said in part, “The first thing that struck me about her was, she was exactly as I imagined she’d be as a person. No pretenses, no facade, just the real deal. Warm, friendly, kind, interested. Just a light, a real light.”
Newton-John also introduced Urban onstage at the event, where he met his wife, Nicole Kidman. He said, “And there she was, part of our very, very beginning. So for that and many more reasons, she’s always gonna play a very, very special role in our life. But the really, really extraordinary thing about Olivia is the legacy she’s left, not only in music, not only in film, but her humanitarian legacy is extraordinary. And that’s the kind of thing that will go on for generations and help millions and millions of people.”
