Nicole Kidman Surprises Keith Urban Fans In Vegas
Nicole Kidman shared a video clip of her surprising fans in Las Vegas by joining Keith Urban on stage during one of his shows over the weekend. She posted the video clip to Instagram, showing her 9 million followers Keith introducing her on her birthday.
Urban tells the crowd in the video, “We’ve got some birthdays in the house, we’ve got teachers in the house, we’ve got wives in the house…” as he says that, he brings Nicole on stage, and the audience screams. Keith continued, “Barefooted wife, by the way, she’s a sunshine hippie.” The couple then hugs on stage, and Keith says, “Happy Birthday, baby girl.” he then sings a bit of a Loretta Lynn classic country song, “You’re Lookin’ At Country,” singing, “I love running barefooted through the old corn fields and I love my country ham.”
Nicole captioned, “Last night in Vegas (heart emoji). Come and see the show!” See that post here.
Keith also posted a clip to Instagram where Nicole came on stage to kiss him after he performed “Without You” and shared footage from the Australian wedding flashes on an oversized screen. He captioned the post on Instagram, “You never know who might show up in Vegas…… magic night xxx.” See that post here.
Urban is currently playing shows at his Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Keith told us before the residency started, “It’s a new production from the ground up.”
Urban knows the dry climate in Las Vegas is tough on his vocals. But he has a remedy for it. “So, it’s definitely drinking lots and lots of water all day, every day.” He added of playing Sin City, “I love it, I love the energy. I love the audience and the unpredictability of it because the audience is always different night after night. Even a Friday night is different from the next Friday night. It’s always unexpected.”
He said, “Live shows are so important because that’s where you see a song connects, see what part of the song connects, and get instant feedback. It’s amazing. It’s in real-time, and yet it changes just like research can from this night to that night, from that person to that person.”
Urban knows the final goal of every show. “At the end of the day, my shows are all about the spirit of inclusivity and togetherness of people that might not have anything else in common. I know that I have people in my audience that run the gamut of political and every religious persuasion, and yet they are all there for the music.”
He added, “My job for two hours is to have everybody come together. It’s an amazing gift to have music to do that with ’cause even at a sporting event, the audience is split in half. We get the opportunity to have everybody in agreement for two hours, which is pretty rarified air.”
