SALT LAKE CITY — With Adam Levine gone from “The Voice,” Blake Shelton doesn’t have to spend his time coming up with insults to sling at his former frenemy.
So now he’s going on tour.
After season 17 of “The Voice,” Shelton is hitting the road with his “Friends and Heroes 2020” tour that kicks off Feb. 13, 2020, in Portland, Oregon, and makes a stop at Salt Lake City’s Vivint Arena Feb. 27.
The tour is in support of Shelton’s upcoming album, “Fully Loaded: God’s Country,” that comes out Dec. 13 and features a mix of hits and brand-new material — including the just-released “Jesus Got a Tight Grip.”
“Friends and Heroes 2020” — a reprise of a tour earlier this year — brings back special guest and “American Idol” star Lauren Alaina, Trace Adkins, longtime duo The Bellamy Brothers (“Let Your Love Flow”) and John Anderson (“Seminole Wind”).
“The Friends and Heroes Tour was so exciting and successful last year that I couldn’t imagine not trying something like that again,” Shelton announced in a news release Wednesday. “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 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 the Salt Lake City show go on sale Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. MST and can be purchased at blakeshelton.com.
