Keith Urban - Keith Urban Returns To The Stage For First Show After Throat Surgery
Aussie country star Keith Urban returned to the stage on Friday night (03Feb12) for his first concert following throat surgery.
The singer/songwriter was forced to scrap a series of shows at the end of 2011 when he discovered he had a polyp on his vocal chords.
He underwent surgery in November (11) and spent Christmas unable to make a sound as he recovered.
But he made a triumphant return on Friday as he performed on one of country music's most hallowed stages, the Grand Ole Opry's Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
It was a very special night as it marked the final concert before the venue's 61-year-old stage, which has hosted the likes of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, is dismantled to make way for a new platform.
