GRAMMY nominated country superstar, Blake Shelton, celebrated a sold-out stadium show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field this weekend, topping out capacity with over 40,000 fans in attendance. Joining the short list of artists who have performed at the iconic setting, Shelton is only the fourth country artist to have ever appeared at the 100 year-old ballpark. Currently on the road for his “Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014,” which also includes sold-out shows August 1st at NYC’s Madison Square Garden and October 4th at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Shelton was quick to thank his fans.
“This proves once again that country music has the best and most-dedicated fans around. I love each and every person for joining me at Wrigley Field last night and just hope everybody had as much fun as I did,” Shelton said. “I’m really proud to represent country music everywhere, but especially excited to have shared this occasion with all the fans in Chicago at such a historic landmark.”
In addition to Blake performing, The Band Perry threw a summertime party for some special friends from country radio at Wrigley Field in Chicago this past weekend. The stop on the TEN TIMES CRAZIER TOUR with Blake Shelton marked the second time the sibling trio performed at the historic baseball stadium, making them the only country artists to have played Wrigley twice.
