Along with about 8,000 other fans, I enjoyed the Blake Shelton concert at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark last Friday night (March 23).  My evening started with setting up outside of Metra with the station van, playing the tunes loud and proud 1 hour before showtime.  As I was setting up a young lady came out, who I recognized as Dia Frampton! Dia was the opening act before Justin Moore and Blake Shelton.  Dia was a contestant on the first season of The Voice on NBC.  Blake Shelton is one of the judges on the show.  She was on Blake’s team and lost out in the final round.  She gave me a CD and then went in to perform for about 3o minutes.  She has great “star” potential.  I look forward to seeing her mature in the music business.

Justin Moore is a huge name on his own, but he enjoyed touring with his good friend Blake.  Justin’s mom came to see him perform at Metra.  Justin said he was humbled by the response of the fans in Billings!  Log on and see how you can win a trip to see Justin Moore in concert in Mesa, Arizona in April.

Blake Shelton took the stage at about 9:20 and proceeded to play till just about 11:30.  The 8,000 fans showed their appreciation, including me.  I caught myself screaming like a little school girl a few times!  This was the final stop on Blake Shelton’s Well Lit and Amplified Tour.

Blake quotes from the show:

  • “I get a little nervous when I play the newer songs”…as he grabs his drink.  Blake said that having a drink while performing eases the nervousness.
  • “I am humbled that all of you showed up considering I had to cancel the show earlier”.
  • “I’m just going to say it, you guys are the best crowd on the tour.”
  • “I’m  comin’ back to Billings”!
