Blake Shelton held court at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Thursday (9/12) for a 4-hour marathon show supported by Easton Corbin and Jana Kramer.

According to TCDailyPlanet.net, Shelton's show was full of humor:

Shelton said he dragged his ass to Minnesota to do two things, sing country music (followed by a long pause), and drink. Fans clearly approved of his mission as they sang along to “The More I Drink.”

The Planet review says Minnesota fans were very receptive to Shelton and his mix of new material and greatest hits:

Shelton praised the country fans in St. Paul, saying this show was so good it should have been televised. He said that in order to do that, you need an epic song that leads people to raise their lit up cell phones in the air and sing along. The audience followed his lead and the entire arena was peppered with individual white lights adding a nice effect throughout the performance of “Home.”
