Keith Urban thanks volunteers at final Brisbane concert

IT took just over a week to achieve, but Keith Urban returned to Brisbane Entertainment Centre last night after his January 27 concert was twice postponed due to devastating weather conditions.  

Urban's final concert of the Australian-leg of his The Story So Far tour didn't disappoint the fans.

"We finally made it," he yelled to the crowd.

"It took a few goes but we're here. Thanks everyone for coming back.

"Are you ready to party Brisbane?"

And party the fans did, three lucky enough to join him on stage for a Kiss a Girl sing-off.

Urban also acknowledged the devastation caused by ex-cyclone Oswald bringing Red Cross, Surf Life Saving Queensland and SES volunteers on stage so the crowd could cheer them for their work.

Special guests and mates Troy Cassar-Daley, Lee Kernaghan and Darren Percival each joined Urban to round out a night of country which included a heavy dose of rock.

Percival's Ain't No Sunshine, in particular, was a highlight.

But it was Urban's generosity with the crowd, his skill on guitar and keyboard, and that voice that made this concert remarkable.

He performed on multiple stages, security officers guiding him through the crowd between non-stop songs, to give those fans in the back seats an up-close view.  

"Who's got the best seats now?" he asked, the crowd rewarding him with yells, whistles and cheers.

While a few lucky patrons received a guitar, everyone left with a gift from Urban - a night to remember.

And if you weren't a fan at the beginning of the concert, then you had a heavy degree of Urban worship by the time he'd played his last chord, performed with all the energy of his first.
