SOMERS, N.Y. (AP) — Country star Blake Shelton is giving two free tickets to a fan who missed an October show after being injured in a motorcycle crash.

Jonathan Daniels told Shelton of his plight with a post on Shelton’s Facebook page. Daniels wrote that he had planned to take his girlfriend to the show to celebrate her birthday, but the accident happened the day after he bought tickets.

He says he couldn’t make the show after spending 15 days in a hospital after suffering two collapsed lungs, brain bleeding and a lacerated liver, kidney and spleen.

The post was heavily shared. Shelton responded in a video , saying the couple could have two tickets to the show of their choice before adding, “motorcycles are very dangerous.”
