Atlantic City hosts free Blake Shelton concert

Friday - 8/1/2014, 5:30pm  ET

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.
