Atlantic City hosts free Blake Shelton concert

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — More than 60,000 fans are rocking to a free Blake Shelton concert on the Atlantic City beach. The country music star and judge on the TV's "The Voice" was performing on a stage near The Pier at Caesars Thursday. Those who don't have tickets can still hear the concert on the boardwalk or out on a boat. The concert is presented by The Atlantic City Alliance and its "Do AC" promotional campaign, and is being produced by Live Nation. The concert is the latest in a series of free, large-scale events to attract visitors to Atlantic City. Jimmy Buffet drew 50,000 fans to a free concert on the beach last year. Lady Antebellum will headline a free beach show on Sunday.
