The faux rivalry between “arch-enemy” rival coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on “The Voice” has grown wearisome, as the celebrities overshadow the competing talent. But Albany’s Times Union Center is shaping up to be real battle ground.

More than five months ago (that’s way back in November), we announced that Levine’s pop group Maroon 5 would be rolling into Albany’s downtown arena on Saturday, November 21. Now, Blake Shelton’s website has announced that the country music star is slated to land at the same venue just a week later on Thursday, September 29. (There’s been no official word about the concert yet from the Times Union Center.)

So who’s going to draw more fans? Or is the real question, “Who’s going to make more money?”

One thing we know from Shelton’s website is that the Premium Blake Shelton VIP Experience tickets to the concert are $469 … and that doesn’t – repeat, does not – include a meet-and-greet with Shelton.

Stay tuned for additional ticket info as it becomes available…

UPDATED 4/25: Priced at $39.75, $69.75 & $89.75, tickets for the concert are slated to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Friday (April 29).
