Get your cowboy boots, hat, and pearl-snap shirt ready to go. Country music super star, Blake Shelton, is coming to campus.

The Patriot Center  will welcome Shelton on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 for the “Well Lit & Amplified Tour 2012.”

“It is nice not having to travel far to see such talented artists perform. I am definitely looking forward to a fantastic show,” said Amanda Murray, 30, who works in marketing in Fairfax, Va.

Shelton’s current hits such as “God Gave Me You” and “Honey Bee” are featured on his new album “Red River Blue,” scheduled for release on July 12, 2012.

“When either of these play on the radio, I turn it up and sing out loud. I can’t wait to hear it live. They are such feel-good songs,” said Andrea Arnold, 32, a consultant in Arlington, Va.

Shelton, along with his wife Miranda Lambert, opened the event at this year Super Bowl XLVI by singing “America the Beautiful.”

The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. with two opening acts, one of which will be Dia Frampton, a finalist from NBC’s “The Voice” who Shelton coached throughout the season.

“I’ve been a fan of his for years. I cannot wait for the concert,” says Kristin Flynn, a 28-year-old program manager from Centreville, Va. “He has such an amazing voice and you can relate to anything he sings.”
