Keith Urban is making some adjustments to his performance schedule for a family emergency.  The sudden death last week of his father-in-law prompted the country star to postpone Saturday's appearance at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. 

Urban has rescheduled the show for next year's fair, and will play his make-good on September 19th, 2015.  Fans are being instructed to keep their tickets, which will be honored for the 2015 concert. 

Keith reportedly learned that wife Nicole Kidman's dad had died Thursday night, while he was on his way to a charity event in Thousand Oaks, California.  TMZ.com says Urban canceled when he got the news, and singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins filled in for him.  Keith is expected to resume his tour in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on September 27th. 

Dr. Antony Kidman, collapsed and fell in the restaurant of a local social club after he had finished his morning exercise last Friday in Singapore - which is 15 hours ahead of California.  He was in Singapore visiting his younger daughter Antonia.  Nicole was reportedly in Nashville at the time of her father's death.  Australia's News.com.au says Keith returned to Nashville, and was expected to join Nicole in traveling to Sydney to be with her family.
