Blake Shelton announces 2023 Back to the Honky Tonk Tour

Carly Pearce, Jackson Dean to open 18-date run

Superstar entertainer Blake Shelton will return to the road in 2023 for his headlining Back to the Honky Tonk Tour, kicking off on February 16th in Lincoln, NE. Set to join the lineup for the 18 date run are Carly Pearce and rising artist Jackson Dean.

“There’s nothing like getting out on the road and taking music to the fans,” Shelton states. “I feel just as excited to step on stage and perform as I did the very first time. I know my tour mates Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean feel the same, and I can’t wait for y’all to get to know them better. Break out the hats and boots, ‘cause we’re going back to the honky tonk!”

Shelton has ranked among Pollstar’s Top 200 North American Tours nearly every year for the past decade. His Back to the Honky Tonk Tour follows consecutive Friends And Heroes outings, each of which earned widespread critical praise.

The beloved recording artist is indeed going back to the honky tonk with his latest single, “No Body.” The track became the most added song at country radio upon impact last month. The 90s-inspired song and its official music video features line-dancing at a country bar, complete with Shelton sporting his signature mullet.

Shelton will perform “No Body” tomorrow night (Thurs, Sept 8th) on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He will then take the hallowed stage at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, September 10th.

Tickets for the trek will go on sale Friday, September 16th and September 23rd at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets for starting September 13th at 10 am local time.
