Minnesota may not be in the south, but it is no stranger to country music. And it’s certainly no stranger to country music stars.
From Carrie Underwood to Luke Bryan to Garth Brooks, several country singers have played in numerous Twin Cities venues. Now, we can add Blake Shelton to the list.
Following in the footsteps of his partner Gwen Stefani, the singer and “The Voice” star will be stopping at St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center as part of his latest tour.
Shelton will perform this weekend, and, as is there custom, the ‘X’ is giving Shelton a big Minnesota welcome with a locally-made gift. This time, the X paired up with Duluth Pack to create a shotgun case and sportsman duffel bag.
Duluth Pack has been creating specialty, handcrafted outdoor gear since 1882.
Shelton’s custom-made duffel bag is made with 18-ounce Mossy Oak Bottomland print canvas. The duffel bag has a camo pattern, while the shotgun case is a deep forest green.
Shelton will perform Sept. 16 and Sept. 17. Tickets cost $39.75 to $89.75.
Prior to the show there will be a happy hour event at Center Gate 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. It is open to the public.
