Keith Urban Will Be Getting Closer Than Usual on his “Get Closer” Tour

If you’ve always wanted to get super close to Keith Urban, then I suggest you spend a little extra money for main floor seats to his “Get Closer” tour.  Keith is setting up FIVE different stages at each show so he can be as close to as many fans as possible.

I can’t help but think that this is somehow related to his displeasure with concert security people. See some of the videos below…

And get this… one of the stages will be set up in a different part of the crowd each night.

Keith explains,

I figured out the idea of the moving stage and it will never be in the same place twice.  One that’s tiny and moveable every night and it allows me to go anywhere in the arena from night to night.  It’s always different.

As you may recall, I told you about how Keith hates the notion of security guards getting between him and the audience.

He says,

I want the (fans) to feel liberated, that they can do whatever they want to do.  If they want to dance and scream and cheer, they should be able to do that and not feel like someone’s going to come and tell them to sit down.

I’m just trying to make sure that everybody no matter where they’re sitting feels connected to what we’re doing.  I want to play with everybody; I don’t want to play at them.  The audience reaction is a huge part of our show.

(Keith’s “Get Closer” tour kicked off last night in Biloxi, Mississippi.)

Here are a few fan videos with Keith sharing his thoughts with security…and even getting a little physical in one. This first vid is just a short little clip of Keith telling off security.

Here’s one from last year of Keith telling the security to “leave these people the hell alone”, and a few more choice words.

In this one, Keith notices something, and it appears he’s trying to tell the security guard to lay off a fan. Finally, he walks over and shoos the guard away using his foot. Check it out.
