Calling all Blake Shelton fans! And for that matter, calling all fans of free concerts! If you’ve been dying to see the country superstar and host of “The Voice” run through his collection of hits on stage, there is no time like the present. Blake Shelton just announced a free pop-up concert happening on Thursday, September 20 at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth. Sorry Nashville and Oklahoma fans, it seems like Shelton is bringing his free show to the Lone Star State and the World’s Largest Honky Tonk this time around.
GuideLive reports that the country music star will perform the free pop-up show for 5,000 lucky fans. The concert is reported to last for about 90 minutes or more, and as GuideLive continues, when you’re at Billy Bob’s, your seats are basically right on top of the stage.
If you’re in the area and are ready to grab these free tickets, here’s what you need to do.
Line up at Billy Bob’s at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 20.
The first 5,000 fans that are over the age of 21 will receive a wristband if they can present a valid photo ID. If you’re in line, you can’t grab a wristband for a friend and yourself. You can only receive one wristband per person, meaning all guests need to be in the line with you when the line-up for wristbands start.
The line for the show will open at 4 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Finally, the man of the hour will begin his concert at 8:30 p.m. If you show up when doors open, you’ll have the chance to taste Smithworks Vodka at 6:30 p.m. before the Shelton concert.
This isn’t the first free concert he’s held this year on short notice, either. In May, Shelton held another free pop-up concert in Charlotte, North Carolina for lucky fans, also in partnership with Smithworks Vodka. Blake Shelton’s new album, “Texoma Shore” is out now. Who knows, maybe Gwen Stefani will even be in the small crowd!
As someone who attended Garth Brooks’ free show in Austin last year, I can say that I would have never seen him had it not been free. It’s great to see your favorite acts use their fame for good, especially when it means you can hear some new music while they’re at it.
