Blake Shelton rolls his Ten Times Crazier tour into the Tacoma Dome on Friday, Sept. 19, less than two weeks before his ninth studio album drops.

Artifice is inherent to pop music, but you still need actual talent to pull it off. Katy Perry might not have said anything of much importance Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome, but her real trick was making you not care one bit.

George Strait has done it all with 51 No. 1 singles over a career that spans nearly 40 albums. Strait, 61, hot off an Entertainer of the Year award at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, rolls into the Tacoma Dome on Saturday night with fellow hitmaker Chris Young.
“I would love to see you guys make out for this next song,” said Miley Cyrus Sunday at the Tacoma Dome, introducing “Adore You,” a vulnerable ballad off her smash album “Bangerz.”
Kissing broke out throughout the arena as the influential, 21-year-old pop star belted out the tune in her countryish alto. Cell phones waved like lighters in the crowd. It was a lovely moment.More
