The country superstar surprised Thursday (July 15) evening at his bar and restaurant Ole Red in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, marking their first live performance since becoming husband and wife.
Shelton invited fans to a free concert which acted as rehearsals for his upcoming ‘Friends & Heroes’ tour, the pop-up rehearsals not only featured a variety of songs from Shelton’s catalog, including “Boys Round Here,” “Corn,” “Mine Would Be You,” and more.
The set also included a performance of alongside his wife Stefani. The newlyweds performed their two chart-topping duets “Happy Anywhere” and “Nobody But You.”
“Come on out and get yourself a drink if you’re bored,” Shelton tweeted on Thursday morning (July 15), inviting fans to the concert. “I repeat it’s only a rehearsal… it may not be good but at least it’s free!”
I’ve got some shows coming up soon so I’m gonna be rehearsing today around 4 CT at @OleRed’s The Doghouse in Tishomingo. Come on out and get yourself a drink if you’re bored. I repeat it’s only a rehearsal… It may not be good but at least it’s free!

In a video shared by 93.1 Katy Country in Sherman, Texas, the newlyweds are seen singing the aforementioned tracks surrounded by fans, while Shelton’s bandmates were spread out throughout the venue.
“Goodbye Gwen Stefani,” Shelton said as she exited the stage.
Shelton opted for a more laid back look during his Tishomingo appearance, trading his signature cowboy boots for athletic shoes, one fan even noted “love the fact that he is wearing running shoes and not boots.”

Shelton and Stefani recently tied the knot on the “Minimum Wage” singer’s ranch in Oklahoma.
After six years together, the country superstar, 45, and No Doubt singer, 51, exchanged vows during an intimate ceremony in front of their closest family and friends. The Carson Daly-officiated ceremony took place inside a chapel on Shelton’s ranch, built exclusively for the superstar couple to say their “I Do’s.”

The country hitmaker’s tour comes in support of his latest album, Body Language, which was released earlier this year.
