Urban 'monkeys' going ape for Keith

KEITH Urban may not be playing in Tamworth, but his devoted fans are more than willing to travel to Narrabri and beyond.

Keith’s Aussie “monkeys” will be invading Urban concerts across the country, with about 30 going to Narrabri in June, including Tamworth’s Tegan Pinkerton and Angela Wood.

The two women, who have been to countless Urban concerts since the 1990s, were beside themselves after Urban announced the June 27 show and snapped up fifth-row concert tickets on Monday.

Mrs Wood said it would’ve been better if it was Tamworth, and that the Narrabri concert was the most expensive on the tour.

Sydney tickets sold for $139, with Narrabri at $159.90.

Mrs Wood said he was down to earth and she loved his music.

“What’s not to love?” she said.

The pair is travelling over to meet up with about 30 other members of the fan club.

“As soon as we found out, we booked accommodation and now we have to organise our next shirts,” Mrs Wood said.

They said members were travelling from as far afield as Melbourne, Adelaide, Dubbo, Nyngan and Newcastle to Narrabri.

“Have you ever heard of KURT? It’s a Keith Urban Road Trip – some people are going to every show,” Ms Pinkerton said.

She did have tickets to Sydney, but sold them.

Ms Pinkerton said she loved that Urban had not forgotten his Australian roots.

“I love his music and have been a fan since the 1990s,” she said.

Neither are big fans of his new haircut, though. Ms Pinkerton said they had a campaign to get fellow Keith fan and member of the Viper Creek Band, Damien Baguley, as the Narrabri support act.
