Stadium of Fire No. 39 is in the books.

Keith Urban headlined the event on July 4th, proving to be one of the biggest names Stadium of Fire has ever landed. The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year thrilled fans with an hour-and-15-minute set on an evening that started out blustery and threatening to rain, but ended up being perfectly beautiful.

One of the highlights of the show came when Urban took to a satellite stage in the audience, called up a woman from the front of the crowd and literally gave her the electric guitar he’d been playing. (After he graciously signed it for her, of course.)

There were also the typical Stadium of Fire happenings, such as skydivers, the Stadium of Fire dancers, secondary musical entertainment, more patriotism than you could shake a sparkler at and, of course, the largest stadium fireworks show in the country.
