Keith Urban tells Kyle Sandilands about Nicole Kidman’s fight at Sydney Opera House

Keith Urban has finally dished on the altercation that went down at the Sydney Opera House last month, with his wife Nicole Kidman and an older male audience member.

On Friday, the 53-year-old discussed the incident in an interview on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

“We were sitting down with Nic’s mum and we were clapping. It was a bloody great performance and everyone was cheering and cheering,” Keith said.

“I looked around and I see a few people standing and a few more and I thought ‘Oh I’m getting up’.

“And then this guy behind me just whacked Nic, like really hit her, with the program.”

Keith said that an extremely shocked Nicole then looked over at him and her mother Janelle and said: “He just hit me!”

I was like, “What?! Violence at the opera!”

“It’s a bit of a pickle I was in because I’m a husband and you want to defend your wife but it took a lot of restraint. I was pretty upset,” he said.

Keith also explained how he had never been to the opera before, and was unaware that standing ovations were not allowed.

“We did not know you are not supposed to stand in the opera. Having not been to the opera before ever in my life, I am sensitive to the etiquette,” he said.

Police were reportedly called to the Sydney Opera House last month after the man “swatted” actress Nicole Kidman with a program.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald s Private Sydney section last month, witnesses allege a man in the audience of The Merry Widow grew agitated when Urban jumped to his feet to give the performance a standing ovation.

When Kidman joined her husband – along with the rest of the audience – in cheering on the cast, the man behind them allegedly began a heated exchange with the pair.

According to onlookers, Urban told the man he was simply appreciating the cast’s talent, but things took a turn when the disgruntled audience member angrily “swatted” Kidman with his program, leading Urban to accuse him of assaulting his wife.

The couple were then escorted out of a side door by Urban’s security guards, with police also called to the venue, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Police media confirmed officers attended the Opera House that night following reports of an argument.

“Police have been told a 53-year-old man and a 67-year-old man were both attending the entertainment centre when an argument broke out. Officers spoke to both men and no further action was taken,” NSW Police said in a statement.

Kidman and Urban reportedly did not press charges against the man.
