NASHVILLE, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Liberty
Records) - A packed house, a frantic crowd and what is easily one of the most dynamic concert events of the summer debuted last night in Phoenix
marking the opening of Keith Urban's 'Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour.' The 30-city North American leg, which features The Wreckers
as openers, packed all of Urban's hits, past and present, into a seamless 2-hour performance.
'What a fantastic night,' said Urban. 'It felt like one huge party. The energy from the crowd was unreal. It is so great to be back in the States,' he added.
'Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour' is flawless, the ultimate in musicianship, an electrifying performance that also features world-class production. A 56 foot wide by 28 foot high video wall projects pre-recorded imagery and live footage from six cameras in high-definition (including a flying rail camera), a larger than life concert production with two stages that fully compliment Urban's reputation as one of the industry's best live performers.
The set list included new songs from 'Love Pain & the whole crazy thing'; 'Once in a Lifetime,' 'Stupid Boy' and Urban's current single 'I Told You So,' as well as No 1 hits 'Better Life,' 'Days Go By,' 'Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me,' 'You'll Think Of Me' and the record breaking hits 'Somebody Like You' and 'Once In A Lifetime.'
