Free. That's the price of a wristband to get into the Blake Shelton pop-up concert taking place at Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth on Thursday, Sept. 20.
The famous honky tonk will be open to 5,000 fans -- which is close to capacity -- for a Shelton concert that is expected to last 90 minutes or more. The tables that often sit close to the stage at Billy Bob's will be moved out of the way so fans can get up close.
Given Shelton's fame -- as a judge on The Voice, and the man behind a whopping 24 No. 1 hits -- the opportunities to get in to this concert will go fast. Fans are asked to line up at Billy Bob's at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 20. The first 5,000 people in line who are 21 years or older will be given a wristband.
"We will wristband each person individually," says Terran Fleenor, the director of marketing and communications for Billy Bob's. Which means: You can't go and grab a wristband for a friend; all 5,000 people have to be there in person.
Fans can then come back to the venue the line up at 4 p.m. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 8:30 p.m.
That 21-and-up rule is important, because fans who show up early can taste Smithworks Vodka starting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Billy Bob's.
"As part of the Smithworks family, I've been involved in the development of the brand and I'm excited for everyone to finally taste what we've been crafting," Shelton said in a statement in 2016. "At its core, Smithworks celebrates that moments in life are better spent with good people and great drinks."
Shelton last played in Dallas-Fort Worth in March 2018 at the American Airlines Center. According to our database, he hasn't played Fort Worth honky tonk Billy Bob's Texas since 2007.
