Must See: Keith Urban At Highline Ballroom, July 21st, 2014

Up Close And Personal

Up Close And Personal

No, I am not a big Keith Urban fan though the one time I did see him live, at MSG no less, I thought he was real good. The problem isn’t just, or maybe I mean simply, where you think it would be, his complete lack of authenticity, but rather his complete lack of country chips. Like so many a young spark following in his footsteps, Urban is a mainstream Adult Oriented Rocker in new boots and panties.

Keith always has his moments but they also come across as somewhat on the lukewarm side. At MSG the girls were losing it for him and I guess  he is good looking enough and he sings songs like “Even The Stars Fall 4 U” and the little girls understand.

So why go to catch him at Highline Ballroom? Simple: I can’t resist the tiny environment. How often do I get the chance to see Keith in a club where everybody you see there just because it is so damn small. I’ve seen both Blondie and Brian Wilson kill it there, and thisclose to the show as well.

And I don’t hate everything he has done either, “You Will Think Of Me” was pretty good.
