These 14 seconds are worth watching just for the little head roll Keith Urban does at the end when describing how he might look performing with a slipped disc in his back.

But although the New Zealand-born country star was hurting, he still showed up early Saturday night at the Konocti Harbor Resort & Spa in Kelseyville, Calif., to do his own sound check.

He went on to sing a combo of greatest hits and lesser-known gems—including a stellar version of "Shine," from Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing—and otherwise rock the house. 

The artist's rep says that Urban isn't planning on letting his injury affect any upcoming dates on his North American tour, which touches down next on Aug. 30 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
