You gotta love it when a performer gets on stage and plays like he means it. That’s exactly what Keith Urban and his band did last week when performing in Bangor at the Waterfront. The energy throughout the show was exceptional, and I don’t think there was ever a moment when Urban didn’t have a smile on his face. From the moment he stepped onto the stage until he played the final song of a nearly two hour set, he honestly and genuinely engaged with the crowd and put on a show to remember.
Although categorized within the genre of country, these guys totally rocked the Waterfront and absolutely got after it on stage from start to finish – I think it’s safe to say that this wasn’t your grandma’s country music. An impressive singer in his own right, he also showed himself to be a phenomenally talented guitar player – and when he and the band got cranking, it was a sight (and sound) to behold. I’ve personally seen some of the more renowned live performers such as U2 and Springsteen… and I’ve even seen the almighty KISS live… and I have to tell you that this Keith Urban show was as entertaining as – and worth the price of admission of – any show I’ve seen.
