"I am tactile and always have been with my audiences and friends, so it is hard to know [that] there is some navigating of that to be considered if we are to keep the show on the road," he told USA Today.

His band will hit the road in the US for the first time since the pandemic began and he shared that although they have been in rehearsals performing for "two weeks in the UK" and his Vegas residency have been the "perfect set up for us as a band to get us ourselves oiled up, to feel really loose and ready to go."

During his UK tour he showed off his closeness with fans after he pulled up a family of five on stage in Bournemouth. The group were wearing t-shirts that spelled out Keith's name, and as he spoke to the matriarch she shared they were from Murtock.

Keith however didn't recognize the name and asked what town it was near, to which she shared Yeovil, but he still was unsure. "I am still stumped, but it sounds lovely… we're thinking of moving there!" he joked.

Nicole and Keith met in 2005

Keith is married to Nicole Kidman and the two are based in Nashville and Los Angeles, with their two daughters Sunday and Faith.

The couple have a long and successful marriage after meeting in 2005 at a G'Day LA event. Keith has claimed that despite their A-list relationship "we're as normal as you can get I reckon".

Nicole, 54, also spoke candidly about the couple's marriage in December, admitting that she didn't want people to aspire to have a relationship like theirs. She added: "Everyone has the right to their own relationship. We are just very protective of our little bubble. What works for us is what works for us."
