Keith Urban – On Friday night, Keith Urban hit the stage for the first time since his November 2011 surgical procedure.
On February 3, the country music singer, made his initial public appearance since his November vocal cord surgery.
The singer did not take his first performance back lightly; the sold-out show took place at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium during the Grand Ole Opry.
His set included a version of “Making Memories of Us,” “Long Hot Summer,” and his most recent single, “You Gonna Fly.” Keith even stayed on stage for “Somebody Like You,” which was a spontaneous performance.
Then, later in the performance, he returned during Steve Wariner’s song “Let My Guitar Do the Talking.” This show was significant because it was the last show for the venue, the stage which is 61-years-old will be changed out for another one next week.
The other performers in attendance included the Oak Ridge Boys, Del McCoury Band, and Country Music Hall of Famer, Charley Pride
Urban underwent surgery in November 2011 to have polyps removed from his vocal cords. During his recovery period, Keith’s doctor put him on a verbal rest for three weeks and told him he was unable to sing until February.
Urban is married to actress Nicole Kidman, they have two daughters together, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, 3, and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban, 1.
