    Default Covers of Eagles Songs

    This is incredible. I just found a review of a Keith concert and I couldn't believe it. I post the whole article here.
    Oh, I would have loved to hear that.

    It pays to bring a homemade poster sign to a Keith Urban concert. And to sit front and center, too.

    Friday night at the state fair grandstand, the country music star heck, with his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman, he's crossed over into pop stardom made two sisters from "outside of Albany" quite happy when he spied their sign.

    "2 sisters, 2 wishes, 2 kisses!" he proclaimed to the happy crowd. "Well, come on up. I'm not going to miss this opportunity."
    So up to the stage went Sharon and Claudia, telling all where they came from (and more than that in Claudia's case, as she explained about a recent joint replacement surgery to her thumb, earning raised eyebrows from Urban). They both got their kisses as the crowd howled.
    Urban was a great singer and fantastic guitar player. But most important, he was a tremendous entertainer. After bussing the two siblings, he jumped down in front of the stage. Then he climbed over the rail and strolled through the center aisle of the crowd, chuckling as he sang and withstanding the tremendous crush of those who strained for one slight touch with fame.
    But it was more than those couple hundred upfront who fell to Urban's obvious charm. By the end of the night, everybody was singing in the rain as Urban and his very fine five-piece band went through a repertoire of songs that regularly make country radio rotation.
    Yes, life is very good for the Australian native, and his sweet songs reflect his satisfaction. "Days Go By" and "Raining on Sunday" got everybody into the spirit. Urban had his own description for the drops falling from the sky.
    "It's a baptism," he said.
    "You Look Good in My Shirt," "Jeans On," "But for the Grace of God" and an honorable cover of The Eagles' "Take It to the Limit" earned choruses from the crowd.
    For a special party mood, he encored first with "I Just Want to Cry" and then the Steve Miller Band's epic, "The Joker," allowing his band mates to take turns with the vocals, too.
    By the time Urban closed with "Somebody Like You," everybody felt special.

    Cool! I would love to see Keith in concert, too. He's just too cute for words! Hope he gets out of rehab soon.

    And maybe we should have a pic of him to feast our eyes on? This is my favorite:



    This is his newest look:
