Keith Urban just wrapped up his Australian tour Monday night by playing a third show in Brisbane that had to be cancelled twice at the beginning of the tour due to treacherous weather including cyclones and flooding in the area.  After postponing the date twice he eventually had to move onto Melbourne and Sydney but didn’t want to disappoint fans who had tickets to the cancelled show in Brisbane, so he made the decision to travel back there before returning to the states.  According to The Courier-Mail, during the show he brought about 15 volunteer members of the Red Cross, Surf Life Savers and the State Emergency Services to honor them for all the work they were doing during the flood clean-up.  He told the crowd, “This is just 15 of the thousands of people around Australia and especially Queensland who all too often remain nameless.  They put their arse on the line and get amongst it to help us rebuild and we want to thank them.”
