The multi-media entertainer Blake Shelton has announced a very special Friends and Heroes 2020 tour, which will kick-off in mid-February. The tour wouldn’t be complete without some of Shelton's friends; he’ll be bringing along accompanying acts Lauren Alaina, The Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, and Trace Adkins.
Tickets for the tour — with the exception of Los Angeles, Wichita, and Detroit, dates — will be available for purchase on Friday, Oct. 25 (Tickets). Los Angeles, Wichita, and Detroit, dates will go on sale Friday, Nov. 1 (Tickets). A limited number of VIP Packages will also be available. Packages vary but can include backstage tours, access to VIP hospitality lounge, preferred parking, custom merchandise and more. Select presales will be available on Monday, Oct. 21-24. Los Angeles, Wichita and Detroit presales will run from Monday, Oct. 28-31.
“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 in a release. “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.”
Alongside the announcement of his tour, Shelton also recently released a new single, “Jesus Got a Tight Grip.” The song was created with the help of Shelton’s frequent collaborators Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander, and Rhett Akins. The single is one of five songs that will appear on Shelton’s upcoming album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country, set to release on Dec. 13. Shelton's recently released “Hell Right” will also be on the upcoming album.
Along with all that, Shelton is wrapping select 2019 tour dates and currently filming for the next season of “The Voice.”
