Keith Urban has been known to appreciate his fans and their talents, often bringing them up on stage during his shows. One fan encounter that stands out is from 2016 when a man named Joyce and his girlfriend, Lex, attended an Urban concert for Joyce’s birthday.
They wrote messages on their tickets, hoping to catch Urban’s attention. Joyce asked to play Urban’s guitar, and Lex announced that it was his birthday.
To their surprise, Urban brought Joyce up on stage.
When a star invites a fan on stage, there’s always a risk that it won’t go well. However, Joyce was more than ready for his moment. Urban handed him his guitar, and Joyce played with impressive proficiency. Together, they performed “Good Thing” from Urban’s album “Fuse.”
Joyce had been a fan of country music and Urban since 2008 when he saw Urban in concert as the opener for Carrie Underwood. Urban has brought several fans on stage throughout his career, but this particular encounter with Joyce remains a cherished memory.
