39th Post - Keith Urban is Comin' to Town

Very short post here, but I just heard on the late news that Keith Urban will be playing the Halifax Commons sometime in the summer of 2008.

I can't name any song by this man. I just know he is married to Nicole Kidman.

My only comment is when someone responsible for bringing him here all but warned Halifax media (and, by extension, bloggers I suppose) not to be so negative about potential acts coming here. The whole Celine Dion situation, where she decided not to come after all after there had been a little bit of negative press, told me that she has a pretty thin skin. Well, everything about Celine Dion is thin, isn't it? Has she ever eaten a cheeseburger?

I don't get how people can't legitimately comment positively or negatively about anything. As a democratic society, we have a right, a duty, even an obligation to speak and write our minds on things. If people start calling Rick's Hotline and say that they hate Keith Urban, if the few people who listen to Andrew Krystal on 95.7 state that they aren't fond of Urban's tunes (assuming Krystal lets them get 5 syllables out of their mouths before he makes some inappropriate and off topic comment, that is), then I don't see what is wrong with that.

I won't pay to see Keith Urban next summer. I have no problem with his coming, but why should I pay to see something that interests me not at all?

Time for bed. Up in 6 hours!
