Keith Urban thanked the workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic by holding a drive-in concert evening for first responders. The hour-long private show was held at the Stardust Drive-In Theatre outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and was the first outdoor concert in the country since guidelines were set earlier this year.
“To all of you guys here tonight, for everything that you’ve done, and continue to do, to all of your families, we say thank you — this concert is for all of you,” Urban said as he took the stage. More than 200 doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians and staff from nearby hospitals attended Urban’s drive-in concert.
Urban has been sharing his music with fans with a series of virtual concerts, which he has dubbed “Urban Underground.” The drive-in concert was the first in-person event from Urban Underground, which typically features his wife, actress Nicole Kidman. Kidman shared clips from the recent concert as well as a photo of her standing in front of the stage, posting on Instagram with the caption “@KeithUrban just had to play!! Isolating with live music at last night’s first #UrbanUnderground drive-in gig for the incredible #frontline workers at @VanderbiltHealth ❤️ xx”
