'Fake Blake' Shelton gets star treatment from fans at country star's Fargodome concert

FARGO - Country music star Blake Shelton might just have a local look-alike and he may have snuck backstage Saturday night, Sept. 24.

Andrew Dahlen of Fisher, Minn., wrote a Facebook post describing his "Fake Blake" concert story and it's been shared hundreds of times.

He dressed up and looks somewhat like Shelton and posed for pictures with fans on the concourse at Shelton's concert at the Fargodome.

He says he then actually got backstage and encountered security guards and had conversations with concert staff before heading to his chair and then being confronted by another security guard to stay clear of the stage.

Andrew says he's amazed at how everything played out and admits he had a game plan.

"Last night I brought my A game. I actually went shopping to try to purchase clothing to try to look more like Blake," Dahlen wrote Sunday.

Andrew says he hopes Blake Shelton hears about this and maybe agrees to having a beer together.

The Fargodome was not available for comment.
