Blake Shelton planning October tour stop in Tulsa
The Oklahoma country music superstar is launching his new “Ten Times Crazier Tour” in July.
TULSA — Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton is bringing his new tour to his home state in autumn.
The Tishomingo resident announced Thursday the confirmed dates for his “Ten Times Crazier Tour,” which includes an Oct. 4 stop at Tulsa’s BOK Center.
Ticket prices and sale date for the Tulsa show have not yet been announced, according to an email from a venue representative.
Shelton, the reigning Country Music Association entertainer of the year, will embark on his U.S. tour July 19 in Virginia Beach, Va. It will be the Ada native’s second headlining trek after last year’s successful “Well Lit & Amplified Tour.”
“My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it — they know I love to perform. With ‘The Voice’ schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year but I plan to make up for it this year,” Shelton said in the tour announcement.
The tour will follow the fourth season of the hit reality TV show “The Voice,” on which Shelton serves as a celebrity coach. Season four premieres March 25 on NBC.
Mercury Recording artist Easton Corbin and Academy of Country Music New Female Vocalist of the Year nominee Jana Kramer will join Shelton on his summer tour.
“This summer is going to be a blast,” Shelton said. “I want everyone at my shows to leave feeling like they got every penny’s worth of their ticket. I am going to give them every ounce of me on that stage because they deserve it.”
Pre-sale information, contests and meet-and-greet opportunities will be released soon to Shelton’s fan club members at www.blakeshelton.com/bsers.
The reigning CMA and ACM male vocalist of the year, Shelton, 36, has notched seven consecutive No. 1 country singles. Earlier this month, he dropped “Sure Be Cool if You Did,” his fastest-rising single to date and the first single off his forthcoming album, scheduled for spring release.
The new album will be the follow-up to his 2012 holiday collection “Cheers, it’s Christmas” and his Grammy-nominated 2011 effort “Red River Blue.”
At the 55th Grammy Awards in February, Shelton will compete for best country solo performance for his “Red River Blue” power ballad “Over.”
In addition, he will co-host with Luke Bryan the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air April 7 on CBS.
