If I could say something original or profound about Keith Kidman’s show the other night I would, but I can't. It’s the same friggin show as it has been since April 2007. The same jokes, although he did mention his most important act, the impregnation of the savior, but he did it very quickly. If you are really lucky you can see Keith try to be hip with the in-kids; his duet with Carrie on Umbrella makes one cringe...
Gee Keith, you were off for 45 days; couldn't you have worked on a new song? Gee Keith, you are touring with the MOST popular person in music, can't you rise to the challenge? You're boring. The music is boring the crowd gets wowed but this isn't the bunch that will walk across the street to see you again so what’s the point? Is Keith Kidman a one night stand and not an artist to follow and watch as he develops? Was the golden era for Keith Kidman the time between 2002-2005 when Keith Urban was building his following, recording interesting and intriguing music and was giving intelligent and thought out interviews? Keith Kidman is rich, middle aged and dull. It’s too bad, but its looking like it is true. Fame is a bitch Keith. You look like a tool and your performance is nothing more than a way to make more money or create an interest for the boring lackluster music that came in 2006. Yeah Keith, how about another cover song? Although if the cover on your greatest hits is any indication even that is covered in your career failure.
Here is a suggestion, go back to Oz, watch some really good bands, get that love of music that you used to have back and then write and record something vital and exciting. Then plan a tour were you have alternating set lists and a band who isn't as bored as you are and your audience is getting.
What was that Keith? You like your new married famous life hobnobbing with Sting and the tennis set? You have found balance? Well good luck with that. I am beginning to think rehab was really reprogramming and the real Keith is somewhere being restrained wanting to get out. Don't waste your time with this tour, dear consumer. People magazine will tell you what Keith is all about…you can't see it in the music any more.
