Blake Shelton to play free concert on AC beach

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Country music superstar Blake Shelton will play a free concert on the Atlantic City, N.J. beachfront this summer.

Shelton, who is also a judge on the hit TV series "The Voice," will play on the sand near Caesars Atlantic City on July 31.

The concert is presented by The Atlantic City Alliance and its "Do AC" promotional campaign, and will be produced by Live Nation.

Details can be found at www.doatlanticcity.com .

Shelton will be in the area ahead of his scheduled show the next night at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The concert is the latest in a series of free, large-scale events to attract visitors to Atlantic City.

Last year, Jimmy Buffet drew 50,000 fans to a free concert on the beach.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
