Country singer and “The Voice” star Blake Shelton has set a summer tour stop at the BOK Center, his record label has confirmed.
Singer Easton Corbin and Jana Kramer are scheduled to open Ten Times Crazier Tour dates. Warner Bros. Records confirmed to the Tulsa World that Shelton will perform Oct. 4.
Ticket pricing and on-sale date will be released soon, said BOK Center management.
“My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it — they know I love to perform. With ‘The Voice’ schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year but I plan to make up for it this year,” Shelton said in a media statement.
The 36-year-old Oklahoma native’s largest tour to date kicks off July 19 at Virginia Beach and continues through North American arenas through October.
The 2012 Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year and three-time Male Vocalist of the Year has earned seven consecutive No.1 singles. He’s also coming off back-to-back wins on NBC’s hit show “The Voice” and is already celebrating his Top 20 new single, “Sure Be Cool If You Did.”
