Blake Shelton hits the road in 2017 for his Doing It To Country Songs winter tour.
The 13-city concert kicks off February 16 in Bakersfield and ends in March in Omaha.
It features no less than six California dates, including a show on March 11 at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego (the venue formerly known as San Diego Sports Arena), which celebrated its 50th anniversary last week.
All dates appear below for the tour, which also includes singer RaeLynn, who befriended “The Voice” judge Shelton when she was a candidate in the 2012 season of the popular TV series. .
The tour will promote Shelton’s latest release, “If I’m Honest,” which is the best-selling country album of 2016 to date. (There could be some last minute competition from “Weight of These Wings”, the new double album from Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert, which has just been released).
“Playing for an audience is what I love the most – and if you come to me, you come to listen to country music, because that’s what I do,” Shelton said in a not particularly insightful statement. .
Tickets for Shelton’s show in Bakersfield, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose and Chicago will go on sale from December 2. Tickets for other dates, including the March 11 concert in San Diego, go on sale December 9.
A presale for American Express card members begins December 2 at 10 a.m. for concerts in San Diego, Los Angeles, Spokane, Tacoma, Fresno, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Evansville.
A presale for members of the Shelton fan club begins Nov. 29 at 10 a.m. for concerts in Bakersfield, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose and Chicago. A fan club presale for the remaining dates begins December 6 at 10 a.m.
Tickets for the San Diego concert are priced at $ 39.50 to $ 79.50, plus service charges, and will be available, starting December 2, at the Valley View Casino Center box office, online at axs.com and by phone at (888) 929-7849.
