Blake Shelton is heading back on the road in 2019. The seven-time Grammy Award nominee announced the Friends and Heroes Tour on his website Thursday, and you can watch his tour announcement video by playing the video above. Fans can get tickets to all of his 2019 tour dates through AXS; tickets go on sale starting Friday, Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. local time.
Shelton is currently trying for his seventh victory on NBC's singing competition "The Voice" but fans will be able to go from watching him on TV to watching him live starting on Valentine's Day. He's lined up 18 new concert dates, which will take him down the East Coast and to select major markets in the Midwest over about six weeks.
The tour kicks off in his home state of Oklahoma, where Shelton will play Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on Feb. 14. What better way for music fans to spend Valentine's Day than to join the nine-time CMA Award winner for an evening that will be just as much a party as a concert? With songs like "Honey Bee" and "Ten Times Crazier," he'll be performing plenty of love songs that will also get audiences dancing in their seats.
Other tour highlights include his Feb. 21 stop at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana and the schedule's only doubleheader at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on March 22-23. Shelton will be visiting some of the biggest venues across the Midwest and East Coast, with his extensive catalog of hits and music from his most recent album Texoma Shore.
That album went to number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, and as successful as Shelton is on the charts and on TV, he's even better to watch live. Fans haven't truly enjoyed his music, or his personality until they've seen him live.
According to Shelton's website, the support acts on this tour will be The Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson and Trace Adkins, with "American Idol" alum Lauren Alaina billed as a "very special guest." Those are four more reasons not to miss the Friends and Heroes Tour, because that is an impressive lineup of country music talent. With Shelton, one of the biggest names in country music, headlining this will be one of the best country tours happening in 2019.
