During a recent show, Taylor Swift went flying all around Nashville’s arena. You see performers pop up anywhere in the crowd during awards shows.

And this is a trend Keith Urban likes.

“Yeah, we have more stages this year for me to do that,” Keith tells CMT. “More places to go and perform around the arena.”

After all, Keith’s upcoming tour is called the Get Closer Tour, so he’ll get closer to fans.

“Hopefully, over the years, we'll keep blurring the lines. The whole arena should be a performance area.

“That's what I'm trying to get to. It's not a stage way up at the end. . . . The whole place should be able to be performed in anywhere.”
