Keith Urban debuts fan video at show
Monday, July 30, 2007
– Keith Urban will debut a new video of "Days Go By," which began airing this weekend, as part of the production for his "Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour." The new version, which plays on the tour's 56-foot wide by 28-foot high-definition video wall, includes edited video clips of fans imitating Urban's "hand waving" motion from his "Days Go By" video.
Fans were also asked to showcase an easily identified landmark in the background and did so by featuring street signs and welcome signs from destinations around the globe. As video footage continues to pour in, fans will have the chance to share the spotlight with Urban throughout the remainder of his tour.
The video is a compilation put together by Urban's tour team.

Urban follows "Coming Home" with "Never Comin' Down," which is introduced with a funky bass line ...
Even though Keith Urban's single, "Wasted Time," borrows more than a little sonic sensibility from electronic music, there's still an upfront banjo solo. And this is how it's always been with Urban. He may play the part of the guitar hero at times, and even revealed his eclectic musical knowledge as a judge on American Idol, but Urban will always be a country boy at heart.
