Blake Shelton Throwing an Opening Party for New Ole Red Bar in Nashville
Blake Shelton's Nashville location of his Ole Red bar and concert venue has announced some very special plans for its grand opening in June.
Shelton and some of his famous friends will be on hand when Ole Red opens in downtown Nashville during the 2018 CMA Music Festival. The grand opening celebration is slated to run from June 6-10 in downtown Nashville as fans come from all around the U.S. to attend the biggest country music event of the year. The restaurant, bar and music venue will host multiple events throughout the week, including a concert billed as Blake Shelton and Friends.
“Lower Broadway is the centerpiece of Nashville. There’s so much great music and fun going on down there all the time and it’s exciting to now be a part of it – it’s a dream come true,” Shelton says in a press release.
Shelton will take the stage in a late-night performance on Wednesday, June 6 at Ole Red, accompanied by a roster of special guests who are to be announced. Tickets for that special gig will not be available to the public, but fans who would like to attend can enter to win tickets online, or by listening for a chance to win on local country stations. A random group of winners will be chosen to attend from all entries.
But ... What DID Blake Mean by His Tweet?!
Fans who don't win tickets can still stream the first three songs from the show live on Ole Red Nashville’s Facebook page at 11PM CT on June 6. Shelton is also set to perform on the Grand Ole Opry on June 7.
Ole Red's Nashville location is a multi-level, 26,000 square foot entertainment complex that features a two-story bar and restaurant, retail area, performance space, dance floor and private VIP booths for small groups. There is also a large, upscale private event space called the Hall at Ole Red. The venue's performance space has a state-of-the-art sound system and acoustics meant for live events that will include intimate concerts, live-band karaoke, showcases for up-and-coming talent and more.
The top story of the bar and venue is a 6,000-square-foot rooftop with an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant called the Lookout at Ole Red, which gives fans views of downtown Nashville from every angle.
