| |

The Drum line of the Hawthorne Caballeros Drum and Bugle Corps from Hawthorne, New Jersey has been selected to perform on stage with Keith Urban.

Keith Urban’s Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour is currently traveling around the world and invites local drum lines to perform as part of the show. The Caballeros Drum line will appear with the tour in Wilkes Barre, PA on Tuesday, August 14th, 2007 at the Wachovia Arena and on Wednesday, August 15th, 2007 at the Continental Arena in East Rutherford, NJ.

Gary Gill, Percussion Caption Head for the Caballeros, is very excited to work with Keith Urban and his world class organization. “It is an honor to be chosen to perform with Keith Urban and it is a once in a lifetime experience for our drum line” said Gary. “A chance to be on stage in front of thousands of fans and introduce them to the Caballeros. What an opportunity!”

Mark Arnold, Drum Tech for Keith Urban, stated that "it’s a real honor and pleasure to have the Caballero’s drum line be a part of our show. Being a drum corps alumni myself, I can certainly appreciate the professionalism and history that they will display in their part. Plus, they will be rock stars for a night!"

Keith Urban’s "Love, Pain & the whole World Tour" will feature the songs that have made Keith one of the industry’s most respected musicians. The music is sure to be what will highlight another in a line of critically acclaimed Urban concert experiences. In what has been a relatively short period of time Urban has amassed 7 #1 singles, 12 Top 5’s and has firmly established himself as an electrifying and prolific talent. He’s received accolades and recognition from The Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards (AMAs), The Billboard Music Awards and is the 2005 Country Music Association (CMA) Entertainer of the Year, as well as the CMA and Academy of Country Music (ACM) Male Vocalist of the Year.
