ERIC CHURCH ADDS THREE ADDITIONAL CITIES TO EXTENDED DOUBLE DOWN TOUR! PLAYING LEGACY ARENA SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26
Pre-Sales for San Francisco, Grand Rapids and Birmingham Begin April 30
On Sale to the General Public Friday, May 3
On March 14, the ACM Album of the Year nominee told his fans “I don’t want to be two months from the end of this thing – so we’re going to play a little more… I can’t thank you enough for what this is and what I’m seeing every night. I appreciate everything giving me everything they’ve got and I look forward to seeing you on the road!”
Church has set a new standard for touring with his back-to-back stands in each city of the Double Down Tour, with Rolling Stone pointing out each night’s unique “set list that dwarfs those of his country peers… where loose, funky explorations [are] given just as much space as the singer’s radio hits” and the Kansas City Star noting that the concept works “to showcase Church’s expansive range.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also praised the structure of the tour, proclaiming “it was perfection. And then, after two hours and 45 minutes of music, it was over. Until the next night.”
In addition to unique set lists, each night of the tour has also seen elements specific to the host locations themselves. Church’s references to local venues he played in his earliest days and tribute-filled medleys have won crowds over in every city thus far – from Fenway Park classic “Sweet Caroline” in Boston to the falsetto notes of Prince’s “Kiss” in Minneapolis and a twangy version of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in Detroit – leading Forbes to declare, “It’s a show where paying tribute to Merle Haggard in the first set and Queen in the second set feels natural.”
Church has also made a point to surprise unsuspecting fans with tickets to the pit encapsulated by the stage itself at various shows, handing out passes on the streets of Boston and in the top rows of the arena in Minneapolis. For a tour that has thrilled fans at every unpredictable turn thus far, the added shows are sure to bring even more excitement.
A pit ticket pre-sale for the three newly-added shows begins on Tuesday, April 30 at 9:30 a.m. through the Eric Church Official App with a pre-sale for paid fan club members also running on April 30 from 10 a.m. through 10 p.m. and tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m. All times are local.
