Dear Wellness Seekers,
Brilliant Keith Urban Concert Rocks Palm Beach With Heart is a tribute to the wonderful experience attending live music concerts can be, as it brings your emotions to the surface and lights up your life with joy.
We got lucky by buying a raffle ticket to support the local Rowing Club offered for sale by a lad in our neighborhood. Ten bucks turned out to be a lucky investment because we won the Grand Prize – A VIP Package to Keith Urban’s Ripcord World Tour. It included the works – Terrific box seats, VIP lounge access with drinks and appetizers, parking!
The talent line up was fresh – warm ups included Maren Morris ( American Idol), Brett Eldridge (thumbs up) and Keith Urban (a long time personal favorite for loads of reasons but especially because he is from Australia.)
Going to an outdoor concert in Summer in Florida is not for the faint of heart. Especially since Florida has been rocked with a continuous pattern of rain storms unloading a deluge of moisture with brilliant celestial lightning. For days the pattern has threatened outdoor activities. But we were not going to be daunted.
As we had never been to the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater before we checked out the box seat location and found we were in an elevated spot in the center of the covered venue. Perfect! On Saturday, the day of the concert, we got through the day without any storms and hoped it was a good omen for the night’s events. But little did we know the big storm was yet to come.
We arrived and hour before the first act because we had access to relaxed, comfy open air VIP Lounge where we enjoyed yummy lite fair. There was ample to enjoy. Fresh flowers on the tables and a full bar. We were greeted by a gentleman with Live Nation informing us of who best to enjoy the experience which did enhance our enjoyment. A much appreciated personal touch. As we walked into the theater too our box we found it was elevate with a great view – close enough to see the stage, we head weather was approaching.
We got through the first act with Maren who set the mood for everyone. Then came the storm – they announced it asking people to come into the venue who were seated on the grassy hill. It stormed – lightening and pouring. Everyone was safely brought together and made the best of the situation – we had music background helped to soothe everyone but keep the mood happy. The storm was a huge one. It lasted one hour almost to the dot. Then Brett appeared kicking things off and we rocked on for the rest of the night. You could tell the entertainers were grateful the crowd stayed and they wanted to show us a great time out of appreciation for our patience. Brett was up beat and really got things rolling with everyone on their feet. Then Keith took the stage. He clearly elevated it to a world-class experience simply by stepping on the stage playing his guitar.
Keith is a brilliant performer with a distinct style that brings a global air of sophistication to country music that also has an undercurrent of pure rock. I especially enjoy when he performs his finger magic with the strings of a guitar! Several times he was performing in a trance moving above his amazing skills. He transcended above it all. You could feel every chord in every part of your body. But then he didn’t stop there – he did three amazing heartfelt things:
- He devoted the concert to the Orlando terrorist victims as it was exactly one week from they night of the tragedy.
- He called out two gals from the crowd who held a sign that said 2 Sisters, 1 Wish, Meet KU. He brought them on stage an asked about the sign. They were over the moon with excitement and shared this was their 28th Keith Urban Concert and they brought the sign every time praying he would get to meet them by some miracle and Keith made the miracle happen in front of a crowd of 19,000. He chatted them up and gave them autographs. A shining moment.
- Latter in the concert he stooped in the middle of a song and invited a boy who looks about 9 years of age to come up on stage. Keith took off his guitar , signed it and gave it to him! He then showed him how to play it and encouraged the little guy how to play and perform. The kid was simply star struck. And so was the audience. Brilliant Keith!
There was not dry eye in the house!
Brilliant Keith Urban Concert Rocks Palm Beach With Heart demonstrates how a personal touch by an entertainer of Keith Urban’s caliber can bring our humanity to the forefront. Keith clearly put his heart into this concert in some many ways – he showed who he really on the inside not just on the outside. He play HARD and extraordinarily wellbut more than that he truly connected with the audience – everyone felt like he was performing for them. And that he was going to make it special and fun because he really cared that we were there to see them.
THANK YOU KEITH URBAN! Loved the RipCord World Tour Concert. You are great in my book but now you have elevated to a world class man of true character. We loved your concert and hope your return to Palm Beach soon. We will be there!
To Your Self Care Journey To joy,
