Keith Urban is a big fan of Taylor Swift! In an interview with PEOPLE about his upcoming appearance on American Idol, Urban talked about attending Taylor Swift's Eras Tour with his wife, Nicole Kidman. According to Urban, the concert was amazing and exceeded his expectations. He described Swift as being at the top of her game and praised the tour as the best of the best. Urban even documented his experience at the concert in a TikTok video. In the clip, he and Kidman can be seen rocking out to some of Swift's hits. Urban captioned the post with a message of love for the singer. Swift's Eras Tour began last month and will run until August 9th.
The tour features a 44-song setlist that spans her entire career, including songs from her latest album, Midnights. Swift also pays homage to her previous album eras through her performance attire. Each era has its own distinct look, with outfits from iconic designers like Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Nicole + Felicia, Alberta Ferretti, and others. One of the highlights of the tour is Swift's performance of "Taylor's Version" tracks. These are updated versions of her songs that she re-recorded after her former record label Big Machine was sold to Scooter Braun. Urban actually appears on one of these "From The Vault" tracks called "That's When" from the Fearless (Taylor's Version) album. He commends Swift for her decision to re-record her albums and regain artistic control. Aside from attending Swift's concert, Urban is also excited about his role as a mentor and performer in the American Idol finale.
Additionally, he is preparing for his residency shows in Las Vegas. When asked about the difference between performing in Vegas and touring worldwide, Urban says that he approaches every gig the same way. He credits his background of playing in clubs and bars as a teenager for his mindset of always wanting to get the crowd fired up. Urban also hints at new music on the horizon, promising that there will be new music either later this year or early next year. Fans can look forward to a new album from him in the near future. Overall, Urban is enjoying his time in the music industry and is excited for what's to come.
