KEITH URBAN
7:30 p.m.,Verizon Arena. $20-$76.75

Keith Urban's
got a lot of things going for him. He's Australia's biggest musical export since, I don't know, INXS? The Wiggles? He's Nicole Kidman's main squeeze, and a proud parent, with her, of a 1-year-old. And earlier this year, for the first time in his career, one of his albums topped the Billboard 200. That album, “Defying Gravity,” which blends country-pop and rock and redemptive themes, is bound to inspire a stuffed crowd ready to get uplifted. Urban's multi-instrumental chops and big, smooth voice should deliver. Ditto for the Atlanta duo Sugarland, who marry country, rock and sharp songwriting in the opening spot.
