Tickets can be purchased through LiveNation.com and ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
Shelton received strong reviews from critics while on the road this winter. The Louisville Courier-Journal noted: "When you hear his body of work in the context of a two-hour show, it's also evident why Shelton has struck platinum. He isn't about pyrotechnics, opting for a sincere, likable approach that he pulls off with astonishing ease." And The Boot said of his show in Buffalo, N.Y.: "Thanks to Shelton's 10 seasons-long role on The Voice, awards show hosting gigs ...it can be easy to forget what got him there in the first place: good, solid country music ... and a ton of charisma. Both were on full display throughout his two-hour set."
Shelton will be offering fans the chance to purchase exclusive VIP experiences on this tour. The Gold Blake Shelton VIP Experience will include one premium reserved ticket in the first 20 rows of the floor plus an invitation to the exclusive pre-show party in the BS'ers Lounge where fans will be treated to a special acoustic performance and Q&A session with Blake. The Platinum Blake Shelton VIP Experience will include one premium reserved ticket in the first 5 rows of the floor, a Blake Shelton autographed guitar and special venue parking in addition to the aforementioned perks of The Gold Blake Shelton Experience. The Silver Blake Shelton Experience will include one premium reserved ticket in the lower bowl and early entry to the venue with dedicated seamless admission. More information about additional perks from these packages can be found online at BlakeShelton.com.
It's a busy year for Shelton with the release of his new album, "If I'm Honest," on May 20, which includes his new single "Came Here to Forget" and "Savior's Shadow," at Country and Christian Radio now. Shelton is currently filming his 10th season on the Emmy Award winning, The Voice, on NBC.
Additionally, Shelton released the track and music video for "Friends," which is featured on The Angry Birds Movie soundtrack.
