Gwen Stefani kicked off her This Is What the Truth Feels Like Tour Tuesday night at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield Massachusetts, and Blake Shelton was there to cheer her on as she brought the house down. Blake didn’t take the stage to perform “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” with his girlfriend, but he did share an amazing backstage photo of Gwen performing in front of the enthusiastic crowd.
As Entertainment Tonight reports, Blake Shelton called Gwen Stefani’s performance “epic” in a sweet tweet accompanied by a picture of Gwen wearing one of her signature belly-baring costumes.

Blake Shelton also revealed which song he enjoyed watching Gwen Stefani perform the most. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Gwen’s first concert of her This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour was live-streamed by Yahoo! Music, so Blake knew that many of the Shefani fans who follow him on Twitter got to watch the event. He informed these fans that his favorite moment was when Gwen took the audience back to the No Doubt album that started it all, and he also asked his Twitter followers to share their favorite songs from the show.
“Holys**tballs of America!!!!! That was unreal!!!! What was yalls favorite song?! I loved “Don’t Speak”!!!” Blake tweeted.

As No Doubt fans know, “Don’t Speak” was about the tragic end of Gwen Stefani’s relationship with bandmate Tony Kanal. However, it obviously doesn’t bother Blake that his girlfriend is still singing this popular tune about her former flame two decades after it was originally released. Other No Doubt songs Gwen performed during Tuesday night’s concert included “Just a Girl,” “It’s My Life,” and “Hella Good.” As Taste of Country reports, Blake asked Gwen to perform “Hella Good” last month at Country Jam for his 40th birthday. However, he admitted that he felt a bit upstaged because the crowd loved it so much.
Blake Shelton probably also enjoyed Gwen Stefani’s performance of “Rare,” one of the songs from her latest album. Blake previously revealed that it’s his favorite song from This Is What the Truth Feels Like, likely because it’s all about him. Other songs Gwen performed last night that are obviously about Blake include “Misery,” “Make Me Like You,” “Where Would I Be?,” “Obsessed,” “Asking 4 It,” and “Truth.” The songs she performed that are likely about her divorce from Gavin Rossdale included “Red Flag,” “Naughty,” and “Used to Love You.”

Gwen also performed numerous songs from her 2004 debut solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. These included “Cool,” “Danger Zone,” “Luxurious,” “Harajuku Girls,” “Rich Girl,” “Hollaback Girl,” and “What Are You Waiting For?” Her opening act, Eve, joined her for a performance of their hit song, “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” and Gwen Stefani closed the show with “The Sweet Escape.” “Wind It Up,” and “Baby Don’t Lie” completed her set list.
As the Daily Mail reports, Gwen Stefani was so excited about her first show in seven years that she finally decided to return to Snapchat after a lengthy break from using the app—and she brought Blake Shelton with her! Gwen informed her fans that Blake had to take a long break from Snapchat because she lost his password. However, Blake still doesn’t seem to be a big fan of snapping.
When the show was over, Gwen Stefani celebrated her big night by sharing an intimate Instagram photo with fans. She spent her entire concert rocking tight bustiers and clunky combats boots, so she was probably more than ready to get comfy and cuddle with her cowboy. As you can see, she threw on a baggy hoodie and got cozy with Blake.
