ATLANTIC CITY (AP) — More than 60,000 fans have tickets for a free Blake Shelton concert on the Atlantic City beach.

The country music star and judge on the TV's "The Voice" is set to take the stage near The Pier at Caesars at 6 p.m. 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 will be 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.
