Keith Urban invited some Las Vegas high school students to take a look behind the curtain at his Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace’s Colosseum. Approximately 30 students – all guitar majors – from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts were able to watch Keith perform several songs, go backstage to witness the production of the show, as well as learn about sound engineering and ask the global superstar questions.
“It’s great to kind of be in that situation to give any answers that might help, but also to hear questions and challenges that they’re going through right now,” Keith exclusively told PEOPLE.
“It was very apparent that this is what I was going to do. I love that I get to play [The Colosseum,] but I’d be doing it if I could just play some bar on the Las Vegas Strip tonight. That’s where I’d be. I’d be doing that,” he added. “But this place is better. This place is amazing.”
Keith, who is sitting inside the Top 10 on the country charts with his latest single “Wild Hearts,” will resume his Vegas residency March 30th, 31st and April 1st before heading across the pond.
