Blake Shelton is peppered with questions about his latest career decision, but he might have a good reason for it.
The premiere of The voice Season 23 is still a few weeks away, but Blake is back on the road doing what he loves most – performing his country hits. Back in September, Blake announced his “Back To The Honky Tonk” tour, which consists of 18 different stops across the US over six weeks.
Blake’s new tour will take him to Michigan, North Carolina and even his home state of Oklahoma. Before it wraps up in upstate New York, he’ll also be joined on stage by country artists Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean. Most recently, the NBC star reminded people that he will be kicking it up in Nebraska on February 16th. It turns out that not everyone is on board with the seats he chose.
In reaction to the concert lineup, fans immediately took to his Instagram comments section with questions.
“How about CALIFORNIA mister?!” one person wrote. “What the hell?! You’re not coming to Houston?! Oh shit,” added another. “Where are the New England tour dates Blake???” another listener said.
“I thought I was going to get away The voice so I would have more free time, but you make me feel like maybe I don’t,” he said, according to SheFinds. “George Strait is my hero on many different levels, one of which is how little he tours. And it’s like, I want to do everything like George Strait.”
It sounds like fans may have to get used to a smaller selection of tour dates if and when Blake decides to travel again. With The voice season 23 premiering on March 6, the “Out in the Middle” performer will also join blind auditions while on the road. But when he wraps up performances on March 25, he’ll likely have some downtime before the live shows begin later this spring.
