Keith Urban treated some frontline healthcare workers to a VIP drive-in concert on Thursday night.
The country crooner, 52, invited around 200 people from Tennessee’s Vanderbilt University Health to join him for a night of music at the Stardust Drive-In movie theater, about 40-miles outside of Nashville. And wife Nicole Kidman, 52, was there to support, cheering him on from an appropriate distance.
The Academy Award-winner shared a photo of herself from before the event, gazing at the drive-in as a crew diligently crafted a makeshift stage area.
Keith’s latest gig was mostly just him and two other musicians playing on a flatbed truck in front of about 125 cars. Urban performed for a crowd of more than 200 medical workers from Vanderbilt Health.
“It’s like glorified karaoke,” Urban told The Associated Press, of the set up that included a band member playing pre-recorded tracks and another guitar/keyboard player.
In the wake of the new coronavirus outbreak, Keith Urban hadn’t played a live show since February. Urban said it took him and his promoter Live Nation about a month to plan the surprise drive-in concert, although more drive-in concerts are currently being planned throughout the country. “All the cars are tilted forward so they’ve all got a great view and you’ve got this freakin’ killer video wall behind the stage,” said Urban.
