Third time's a charm: After canceling two shows because of flooding in the area, Keith Urban finally made it to the stage Monday night (Feb. 4) in Brisbane in his home country of Australia.
"It took a few tries but we made it back," Keith said to huge applause, the Courier-Mail newspaper, reported .
"More importantly, you made it back and we really appreciate that."
Then, during a break between songs, Keith brought up volunteers from the Red Cross and other rescue organizations that rallied to clean up and offer other help after the floods.
"This is just 15 of the thousands of people around Australia and especially Queensland who all too often remain nameless," Keith said.
"They put their arse on the line and get amongst it to help us rebuild and we want to thank them."
