Blake Shelton Bringing Back Friends and Heroes Tour for 2021

Blake Shelton's Friends and Heroes Tour will make another return in 2021, with Shelton to begin a 17-date run on Aug. 18. The new tour will begin in Omaha, Nebraska and will close on Oct. 2 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with Shelton to visit 16 cities with a two-night residency in Washington, D.C.

Shelton will be joined by very special guest Lindsay Ell, with special appearances by Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd and Trace Adkins. The "Minimum Wage" singer was out on the road on his Friends and Heroes Tour in 2020 when the pandemic shut down the live concert industry as Shelton was in the middle of preparing for a show, forcing him to reschedule multiple dates on the tour.

"A little over a year ago when the world shut down and we had to postpone the tour, I was already in Omaha getting ready for the show that night," Shelton said in a statement. "I told you we would be back, and I'm thrilled to say we are kicking off the Friends and Heroes 2021 Tour in Omaha. I'm giving everybody in every city plenty of notice – you might as well tell your boss you're gonna be late to work the next day and pay that babysitter overtime because we are going to play some country music for y'all until they turn on the lights. And that might not stop us! I'm excited to welcome Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd, Trace Adkins and my very special guest Lindsay Ell to the Friends and Heroes 2021 Tour… see you there!"
