Shelton Stages Arena Tour

Blake Shelton’s career is taking a step forward as the celebrity plans to fill arenas nationwide with the “Well Lit & Amplified Tour 2012.” Shelton’s 27-city arena tour will launch in Toledo, OH this January, ending in March at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Assisting the reigning CMA Male Vocalist and five-time CMA nominee will be opening acts Justin Moore and Dia Frampton. Frampton was coached by Shelton on last season’s NBC hit show The Voice and emerged as a finalist.

The New York Times recently named Shelton one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers.” His current single “God Gave Me You” is Top 10 and rising in the wake of his multi-week No. 1 “Honey Bee.” Shelton has had nine No. 1 hits and each of his singles since 2007 has peaked inside the Top Ten.

VIP packages for the tour will be available on with items such as premium seats and exclusive merchandise.

In other Shelton news, tune in Thurs., Oct. 6 to Entertainment Tonight when the show will premiere the full length video of “Footloose.” Shelton sings the classic song, originally recorded by Kenny Loggins for the first version of the now classic 1984 film. The soundtrack for the new version of the film which stars Dennis Quaid and Julianne Hough, will have 12-tracks and include music from Big & Rich, Cee Lo Green, Whitney Duncan and more.
