Blake Shelton is bringing his 2019 concert tour to Minnesota for a performance at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on March 15. 

Shelton announced the "Friends & Heroes 2019" tour on Wednesday. It'll debut on Valentine's Day in Oklahoma City, and a month later he'll take the stage in St. Paul along with special guests Lauren Alaina, Trace Adkins, John Anderson and the Bellamy Brothers.

There are a trio of VIP ticket packages available, and the top package includes a seat in the first five rows, an autographed tour plaque, 2 drink tickets, photo opportunities (not with Shelton) and a parking pass, among other small gifts. 

VIP packages start at $189 and go up to $399. 

If Alaina's name doesn't sound familiar, you might remember her from season 10 of American Idol, or as one of the rising stars in country music.

She had a No. 1 hit in 2017 with "Road Less Traveled" and was featured in Kane Brown's award-winning song "What Ifs."
