Blake Shelton Brings 'Friends And Heroes Tour' Back For 2020

The country singer just announced the second half of the trek, which ran earlier this year, will kick off again on February 13, 2020 in Portland, Oregon. Shelton's "Friends and Heroes Tour" will hit 16 cities throughout the Midwest and West Coast before concluding with a final show in Detroit, Michigan on March 21.
Back again for the second half of the trek are supporting acts including Lauren Alaina, the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson and Trace Adkins. All four of these artists were a part of the tour in 2019.
“The Friends and Heroes Tour was so exciting and successful last year that I couldn’t imagine not trying something like that again,” Shelton says. “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," Shelton adds. "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.”
Tickets for Shelton's 2020 "Friends And Heroes Tour" go on sale October 25 at 10 a.m. for all shows except those in Los Angeles, California, Wichita, Kansas, and Detroit, Michigan. Those three excluded concerts will go on sale on November 1 at 10 a.m. To purchase tickets and get further tour details go here.
The "Friends And Heroes Tour" will follow up Shelton's release of a new album, Fully Loaded: God's Country due on December 13. The project will feature 12-tracks with some older hits mixed in with brand-new songs including his just-released "Jesus Got A Tight Grip," his current single, "Hell Right," and his No. 1 hit "God's Country."
