Blake Shelton Announces Early 2016 US Tour

One of Country Music’s brightest stars, Blake Shelton, has announced his first set of tour dates for 2016, which can be found below.  This slew of dates begins on February 18th at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, OH, and will spend the following 4 weeks looping throughout the US before the closing tour stop at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA, on March 19th.  On this run, Blake Shelton will be offering fans opportunities to purchase VIP experiences with perks that include premium seating located within the first 15 rows of the lower bowl, or general admission pit plus an invite to the pre-show party.  More information can be found at

This tour will be coming in support of Blake Shelton’s 2014 studio release, Bringing Back the Sunshine, which debuted at the No. 1 Position on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart during the time of its release, and hosts the No. 1 hit singles, “Neon Light”, “Lonely Tonight”, and “Sangria”.  On this upcoming run, Blake Shelton also promises fans some new material as well, stating:
“We’ve got a new album coming and I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play some new music for my fans.  As an artist, my favorite thing to do is go on the road and play shows.  I’ve missed it, and it’s gonna be like old times.  So y’all get ready to party, ‘cause Blake Shelton is comin to see ya’!”

For us drummers, the thrilling part of this announcement comes in the fact that, wherever Blake Shelton plays, so does, Pearl Artist, Tracy Broussard.  Nashville native, Tracy Broussard has been the long-time and rock-solid drumming force throughout the entirety of Blake Shelton’s astounding career, and will once again be accompanying Blake for this early 2016 US tour.  On this run, Tracy will be relying upon a new Reference Series drum kit in his usual one-up, two-down setup, and centered by a matching 14x6.5 Reference Series snare drum.  More information on Tracy Broussard can be found here.
