Blake Shelton’s “Ten Times Crazier” tour will be hitting Holmdel, N.J., Hartford, Conn., and Mansfield, Mass. this weekend in what continues to be one of the most talked about tours of the summer. In this week’s Billboard Magazine, Ray Waddell says that Blake is on pace to “finish among the top touring artists for any genre” this year. Rob Beckham, co-head of William Morris Endeavor of Nashville explains “There’s sellouts and there’s sellouts, but this is a case where there are no tickets to buy.
With almost 200,000 tickets sold in only nine dates, Blake Shelton’s “Ten Times Crazier” tour is living up to its name. While standing on the stage after sound check in Chicago, Blake looked up and pointed to the very back where the pavilion sits and recalled “When I opened for George Strait, I remember going up there and watching him perform. I’m excited to be performing in front of 27,000 people tonight but I’m not gonna lie – I’m a little nervous.”
