A BLAKE SHELTON look-a-like fooled fans and security at his show in Fargo, North Dakota on Saturday. The guy’s name is Andrew Dahlen and he hit up Facebook with photos, as well as the story of what went down.
He does look a little like Blake in the face. He also has the same hair and beard, and seems to be about the same height. I could tell he was an imposter right away, but, obviously, I already knew. So, here’s the story, and it’s interesting. As soon as he entered the arena people started swarming. Girls were all giggly, and everyone wanted a photo. He even fooled a security guy in a headset who offered to escort him backstage.
They went down a hallway where they passed doors with signs that said staff, food, Blake’s Massage, and even RAELYNN’s dressing room. Eventually, he walked into a buffet area and helped himself to free food. And then he opened the wrong door. That’s when somebody who obviously knew what Blake really looked like, asked what he was doing there. Next thing you know he’s being escorted out of the backstage area.
But they didn’t kick him out of the arena. He went back to his seat where more fans came up for pics and autographs. Some of them even knew he was an imposter but took selfies anyway so they could lie to their friends about meeting Blake Shelton.
Finally, a very large, intimidating security dude came over and told him to STAY in his seat, or else. So he did.
As we said, the guy posted the story on Facebook along with photos where he’s posing with some very excited fans. He also ended his post by apologizing to the Fargo Dome staff, the fans, and Blake and added that he’d love to have a beer with him sometime.
