Blake Shelton announces San Diego concert
Blake Shelton is hitting the road in 2017 for his Doing It To Country Songs winter tour.
The 13-city concert trek kicks off Feb. 16 in Bakersfield and concludes in March in Omaha.
It includes no fewer than six California dates, including a March 11 show at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center (the venue formerly known as the San Diego Sports Arena), which last week celebrated its 50th anniversary.
All dates appear below for the tour, which also features singer RaeLynn, who befriended “The Voice” judge Shelton when she was a contestant during the popular TV series’ 2012 season.
The tour will promoted Shelton’s latest release, “If I’m Honest,” which is the top-selling country album of 2016 thus far. (It could get some last-minute competition from “Weight of These Wings,” the just-released new double-album by Shelton’s ex-wife, Miranda Lambert).
“Performing for an audience is what I love most - and if you’re coming to see me, you’re coming to hear country music, because that’s what I do,” Shelton said in a not especially insightful statement.
Tickets for Shelton’s Bakersfield, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose and Chicago show will go on sale beginning Dec. 2. Tickets for the other dates, including the March 11 San Diego concert, go on sale Dec.9.
A pre-sale for American Express card members begins Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. for the concerts in San Diego, Los Angeles, Spokane, Tacoma, Fresno, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Evansville.
A pre-sale for Shelton Fan Club members begins Nov. 29 at 10 a.m. for the concerts in Bakersfield, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose and Chicago. A fan club pre-sale for the remaining dates begins Dec. 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, beginning Dec. 2, at the Valley View Casino Center boxx office, online at axs.com and by phone at (888) 929-7849.
