Keith Urban set to return to stage after throat op

Friday January 13, 2012

US country superstar Keith Urban is set to return to the stage in a month, following throat surgery.

The singer had a polyp removed from a vocal cord at Vanderbilt University Medical Centre late last year and has since been on vocal rest.

His appearance at The Ryman Auditorium on the Grand Ole Opry next month will be his first public performance since he recorded a song for the CMA Country Christmas television special in mid-November.

The singer, who is married to actress Nicole Kidman, was forced to postpone his All For The Hall benefit concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame that was originally scheduled for January 18.

He also rescheduled the tail end of his 2011 concert tour for later this year.

US live radio show Grand Ole Opry also announced Keith will perform on the programme in March.
