On the heels of his sold-out shows earlier this year, country music superstar Blake Shelton will continue the fun this fall with his 2016 tour. Fans can look forward to new songs from his forthcoming album If l'm Honest, including the Top 10 =Came Here t9 Forget," plus many of his 21 number one singles, from his debut single =Austin," to his most recent #1, =Gonna." Shelton received strong re- views from critics while on the road this winter. The Louisville Courier~Journal noted: =When you hear his body of work in the context of a two-hour show, it's also evident why Shelton has struck platinum. He isn't about pyrotechnics, opting for a sincere, likable approach that he pulls off with astonishing ease." And The Boot said of his show in Buffalo, N.Y.: *Thanks to Shelton's 10 seasons- long role on awards show hosting gigs ... it can be easy to forget what got him there in the first place: good, solid country music ... and a ton of charisma. Both were on full display throughout his two-hour set." ERIC CHURCH--January 28, 2017. Eric Church brings the Holdin' My Own Tour to TD Garden. There will be no opening acts on the Holdin' My Own Tour. Instead, Church will headline two full sets each night. =It's just us," Church said of his upcoming tour. I'm going to do an intermission in the middle so people can get beer, which is not really done in country shows. I think it's a neat way for fans to interact, and it gives us a breather, and it gives them a breather. You can talk about what's been played and how the show is so far." In addition, Church said the split show with two sets gives him the op- portunity to have two different opening songs, two closing songs and two sepa- rate themes and looks if he so chooses.
