Last Night: Keith Urban At RodeoHouston

Keith Urban Reliant Stadium March 8, 2011

Aftermath was all set at 8 p.m. to go to the Rodeo and witness Australian country star Keith Urban perform miracles like the ones we'd been hearing about on the Internet for the past few days. We listened to some country love songs, put on a skirt, and left the house; 20 minutes later, we realized that, in a haze of hairspray and Moscato, we had somehow forgotten our tickets at home.

Fast-forward 40 minutes later and we're arriving at the Urban show almost halfway through his set, which evidently was a bit short.

As soon as we caught our breath from running up the steep Reliant ramps while simultaneously holding our skirt, we were entranced by his charisma and perfectly lined middle part. We couldn't even master that follicle fault-line when we were in fifth grade and had a comb pick.
