Blake Shelton is hitting the road in 2020 with a repeat of his Friends and Heroes Tour, with the original lineup! Shelton will kick off the tour on Feb. 13, with Trace Adkins, Lauren Alaina, the Bellamy Brothers and John Anderson once again joining the superstar.
“The Friends and Heroes Tour was so exciting and successful last year that I couldn’t imagine not trying something like that again,” Shelton said in a statement. “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 where we have the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina all coming back to do the exact same tour.
"We were only able to do a handful of shows last year," he added, "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.”
Shelton also posted the good news on social media, using a video to share the exciting news.
"It was the greatest tour I've ever been a part of," Shelton said while scrolling through pictures on his phone. "Look at all these memories. "Lauren Alaina, John Anderson, the Bellamy Brothers. I loved this acoustic part with Trace. Unbelievable. We're never going to beat that tour."
