Heavy rain put a damper on Keith Urban's concert in Austin, Texas on Thursday night (15Aug13) as organisers scrapped the gig due to the storm.

The country star was ready to perform at the Austin360 Amphitheater when the bad weather hit and his show was eventually called off after some production equipment was damaged.

Urban filmed a video message apologising for the cancellation, telling fans, "I'm fully dressed on the bus here in Austin, and they tell us we have no lights, no production... nothing because of the storm. I'm so, so sorry everybody. I'm just... really frustrated. We were all ready to play."

A post on the venue's Facebook.com page reads, "Keith Urban ticket holders, we're so disappointed to announce this, but the rain damaged Keith's equipment, so he'll be unable to play tonight. Thanks to everyone who waited out the storms with us. Please travel home safely."
