POSTPONED: Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton cancelled and is rescheduling his shows in the remaining cities of his 2020 tour, including Little Caesars Arena's previously scheduled show on Saturday, March 21, due to COVID-19 concerns. When he returns to perform next year, it will not be part of the “Friends & Heroes” run.
All tickets will be honored at the to-be-announced rescheduled date in 2021, which will feature a new line-up and alternative VIP packages. Ticket refunds are available at the point of purchase.
Country music superstar Blake Shelton championed his friends and heroes this year more than ever, from sharing singles to sharing stages – and he’s not done yet! The arena-selling, multi-media entertainer will hit the road once again for “Friends and Heroes 2020” beginning Thursday, February 13 in Portland, OR. The 16-date run will hit major cities throughout the Midwest and West Coast. Joining him is very special guest Lauren Alaina as well as appearances by The Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson and Trace Adkins.
“The Friends and Heroes Tour was so exciting and successful last year that I couldn’t imagine not trying something like that again,” said Shelton. “Even though every night when the show wrapped, I would tell the audience that they might never see something like this again, with these legends, my plan all along was to at least try to make that happen. I didn’t know if I’d be able to get the same artists, but we were able to work it out where we have the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina all coming back to do the exact same tour. We were only able to do a handful of shows last year, so we’re going to take the tour to different areas so that fans will get a chance to see what we did. I feel like it was the best concert experience that I’ve ever been involved in, and I’m ready to get fired up again.”
The project’s title track, three-time CMA-nominated smash “God’s Country,” is the fastest country single in the past year to reach one million track equivalents. It is nominated for Video, Single and Song of the Year. The smash hit became Shelton’s 26th No. 1 on country radio, where it remained for a multi-week run, in addition to his 16th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Shelton also earned a Musical Event of the Year nomination for “Dive Bar,” his collaboration with music icon Garth Brooks.
Listen to single “Hell Right”
Shelton's current single, "Hell Right” features friend and tour-mate Trace Adkins. The “surefire hit” with a “swampy, loping groove” (The Oklahoman) is nearing Top 20 at country radio and continues to climb.
Listen to the "Jesus Got a Tight Grip"
Shelton is reminding the world that “Jesus Got a Tight Grip” in his brand new song. The seasoned songwriter penned the track alongside frequent collaborators Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander and Rhett Akins. The upbeat tune celebrates the goodness in everyone, even those who might “have a little rust on [their] halo[s].” “Jesus Got a Tight Grip” is one of five new songs on Shelton’s album Fully Loaded: God’s Country. “Jesus Got a Tight Grip” is one of five new songs on Shelton’s album Fully Loaded: God’s Country
