Nicole Kidman ditches husband Keith’s tour and takes her children to see Taylor Swift instead

Nicole Kidman spent Friday night singing her heart out in the front row during Keith Urban’s concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

But when Keith’s Graffiti U World Tour moved from Tennessee to Alabama for a show the following evening, the country star’s wife decided to stay behind.

Instead of attending her husband’s next gig, the 51-year-old actress remained in Nashville where she spent the evening at a Taylor Swift concert with her daughters, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose.
