Shelton was the Friday night headliner but was only able to play for 45 minutes before bad weather forced him and his band off the stage. A fan even caught the lightning storm on camera while the singer was performing his hit, "She Wouldn't Be Gone."


The "Sangria" singer promised fans he would make up for the shortened set the next time he played Wisconsin.

This must be a sign, right?

His next live show is scheduled for July 31 at the Cape Blanco Country Music Festival in Sixes, Oregon.
