NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News Release)- Country music star Eric Church will perform at Verizon Arena on Friday, October 25.
After a rousing start to his Double Down Tour, Eric Church spoke directly to his faithful Church Choir in a video message, announcing 13 added shows across eight cities to his 2019 trek, Sept. 13 through Nov. 23, to follow the 19 cities previously announced this spring.
Yesterday, 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 everybody giving me everything they’ve got and I look forward to seeing you on the road!”
The Kansas City Star notes that the concept works “to showcase Church’s expansive range.” Thus far, Church has performed almost his entire catalog from the span of his six studio albums, continuously introducing first-time performances as the tour progresses to make every show completely its own. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also praised this 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 himself 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.
The pit ticket pre-sale for the Oct. 25 North Little Rock, Ark. show begins on Tuesday, March 26 at 9:30 a.m. through the Eric Church Official App with the paid fan club member pre-sale running from Tuesday, March 26 at 10:00 a.m. through Thursday, March 28 at 10:00 p.m. and tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, March 29 at 10:00 a.m.
As Church takes over each added city, there will continue to be many new and exciting events happening throughout as well as unique merchandise available. As in the past, fans have the opportunity to pre-order These Boots by Lucchese or to purchase their own pair on site in the venue concourses. New this year, Jack Daniel’s has debuted an exclusive Eric Church Edition Single Barrel bottle, available at select liquor stores along each stop of the tour with engraving trucks set up for fans to personalize their bottles. Proceeds from this bottle will help support The Chief Cares Fund. For more details on Jack Daniel’s locations and how to pre-order These Boots, be sure to visit ericchurch.com.
Additionally, fans can prepare for upcoming tour dates with Apple Music’s new “Get Ready to Double Down” exclusive playlist and keep the celebration going all year long with “The Party Never Ends,” both available as part of a free three-month trial for new Apple Music subscribers (terms apply).
