Following a cancer diagnosis, Blake Shelton will take on the role of country star ...

On November 11, 2022, a Veterans Day concert will be held at Coachella Crossroads in California. Blake Shelton, a former Voice coach and country musician, was not originally scheduled as a part of the lineup. However, he will now perform in place of Toby Keith, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall.

Keith was planned to reprise his role this year, but was forced to cancel his performance after he revealed that he had stomach cancer earlier this summer. Although the country music star was diagnosed last fall, he did not reveal the news until June.

Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) will be available on August 3, 2022.

Shelton will be performing at the Coachella venue for the first time in a row, not to be confused with the annual Coachella festival in April, which is traditionally held in the same month. As Outsider explains, it is the community that gives the festival its name.

Blake Shelton has only made a few concert appearances this year, so this is a great opportunity to catch him. He is reportedly considering retiring from the road, but why risk it? Its also a California date, so there's a pretty good possibility that his wife, Gwen Stefani, will also visit home.

Gwen Stefani, Shelton's wife and co-counsel of Voice, has been known to make surprise appearances at Shelton's concerts, and vice versa. For example, Shelton appeared at Stefani's Hollywood Bowl concert in June, where the couple duetted on Nobody but You with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Stefani surprised Shelton on his birthday with a cake and a song on stage at Santa Rosa at Country Summer, and a video from the event can be seen on Instagram.

Darrell Mike, the chairman of the Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians, has announced that, "We are very pleased that Blake Shelton has agreed to host a concert on Veterans Day." Blake's longstanding loyalty to veterans makes him an ideal fit to host this celebration of those who have served.

According to Music Mayhem, Shelton's performance is exciting for his followers, but the obvious downside is that Keith is still suffering in the meantime.

Keith announced his diagnosis on Instagram on June 12, 2022, writing Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Ive been receiving chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recuperate, and relax. I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But sooner rather than later, I will see the fans.

One Instagram fan commented, We are with you body and soul, Sir Toby Keith! I'm sending all my Scottish jojo to you! Please put a boot in its ear, its the American (Toby!) way! Sending huge love from a wee Scottish immigrant!

Keith has assured followers that he is optimistic about his prognosis and will be back on the road as soon as he is able to.
