Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani Share Kiss During Luke Bryan Performance
Blake Shelton and girlfriend Gwen Stefani got romantic during a Luke Bryan concert on Thursday (May 23), smooching for the camera while enjoying the music. Stefani shared the sweet moment on her Instagram stories, also documenting the entire concert from the side stage.
The concert took place at the Doghouse, which is a music venue in Shelton's Ole Red restaurant and bar in his hometown of Tishomingo, Okla. Stefani watched Bryan's show and had fun swaying along to the music with her boyfriend at her side.
To kick off the opening of the music venue, Bryan performed the first of two back-to-back concerts ahead of Memorial Day weekend, with Shelton performing on Friday, May 24. The proceeds from the intimate concerts benefit the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.
Stefani and Shelton originally met as coaches on NBC's The Voice and began dating in the fall of 2015. Stefani will be spending more time with Shelton now that it was revealed she will be taking the place of judge Adam Levine on The Voice for Season 17. Levine's departure was confirmed on Today on May 24.
Initially, on May 10, NBC announced that Levine would be returning. However, insiders speculated he was exiting due to the new rules and format of the show, in particular with the live cross battles not guaranteeing every coach to have a contestant of theirs in the semi-finals or finals.
Shelton tweeted after getting the news about his bromance buddy: "Having a hard time wrapping my head around
@adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore. After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot."
