Gwen Stefani’s This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour kicks off Tuesday night in Mansfield, Massachusetts at the Xfinity Center, and Blake Shelton recently revealed that he’s going to be there to support his girlfriend.
If you’re a Gwen Stefani fan who wants to see what a This Is What the Truth Feels Like concert looks like before you purchase a ticket, you’re in luck. On Monday, Gwen tweeted that Yahoo! Music will live-stream her performance starting at 8 p.m. ET. You can check it out below.
If you’re a Shefani fan who has already purchased a ticket, you still might want to make sure that you check out the Xfinity Center concert live stream; there’s a possibility that Blake Shelton will take the stage with Gwen Stefani. According to one of Blake’s recent tweets, he’s in Boston with Gwen. As you can see, he was very impressed with her rehearsal for the show.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Gwen has teased that Blake will join her for a performance of their duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” at some point during her tour. Gwen said that she and her boyfriend were trying to coordinate their schedules to make the duet performance happen, and it seems as though Blake made time to join her for her kickoff concert. It’s important to note that there has been no official confirmation that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani will perform together on the Xfinity Center stage, but doing so would be a great way to generate buzz for the This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour. The New York Post reports that ticket sales have been slow so far, so Gwen might need a little boost from Blake.

To promote her tour, Gwen Stefani has given an exhausting number of interviews about her new music and her excitement about going on tour for the first time in seven years. She also can’t seem to avoid talking about her relationship with Blake Shelton. During a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Gwen revealed that she found out about her future boyfriend’s divorce on the set of The Voice. She was going through her divorce from Gavin Rossdale at the time, but she hadn’t told her fellow coaches about it.
“There I was with my big secret, right? And that’s when Blake was like,’Everybody, before we go out there, I want to let everyone know that by the time this airs, I will be divorced,'” Gwen recounted.
Gwen and Blake soon began bonding over their mutual misery, and Shefani was born. Blake became the subject of some of Gwen Stefani’s happiest love songs, including “Make Me Like You” and the misleadingly-titled “Misery.” However, according to Gwen, The Voice didn’t just impact her songwriting by introducing her to her new music muse. During an interview with Live Nation TV, she revealed that coaching singers from different musical backgrounds made her look at herself “in a different way.” She learned a lot about herself while also learning about a wide variety of different music genres.
“I think that The Voice changed my life in so many ways. I never would have considered doing a show like that—it just never crossed my mind. I think just being around so much music and having my mind opened to different genres and different singing styles that I never was really open to before has been really influential.”
In other words, working on The Voice possibly made Gwen feel more comfortable with the idea of teaming up with Blake Shelton to sing a country tune. This is why it’s so fitting that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton performed “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” together on The Voice, and Shefani fans can only hope that they recreate this magic moment more than once during the This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour.
