The country singer, 48, explained to the audience that the Moulin Rouge! actress, 49, was scheduled to attend the Boston suburb show of his Ripcord world tour, but had to change her plans and stay in their native Australia while filming season 2 of Top of the Lake.
“We book the tour at the beginning of the year and June 25 was going to happen in Boston,” Urban said, according to a fan video. “I said to Nic, ‘I can’t work on our anniversary, and so maybe we’ll play Boston another time.’ And she said, ‘What about I come up to Boston instead?’ I said, ‘That’s a great plan!’ She said, ‘I’ll come up for our anniversary. You’ll play that night and have fun and then the next day, we’ll hang around in Boston. We’ll have a great time.’”

The “Wasted Time” singer did, however, tell fans that he was going to fly to Australia after Saturday night’s show to spend the day with Kidman, with whom he briefly chatted with via FaceTime as she drove around with their daughters, Sunday, 7, and Faith, 5.
“You’ve got the kids in the car and everything!” he joked.
After the concert, Urban took to Instagram to thank his fans for the memorable evening.
“It was an extra special night because it was our 10 year anniversary and you guys made the sweetest signs down in the front,” he wrote. “It was amazing, thank you so much!!!”
Earlier in the day, he shared a sweet throwback photo of the pair “minutes after being introduced to each other” at a 2005 gala in Los Angeles.
The happy couple tied the knot in June 2006. Kidman and her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, also share daughter Isabella, 23, and son Connor, 21.
