Eric Church Explains Why He Wouldn’t Do The ‘Double Down Tour’ Again

If you missed the epic Double Down Tour this year, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not going to get another chance.

According to a press release, Eric Church says he will not be performing the Double Down Tour style, AKA back-to-back nights in the same city, ever again.

You had your Friday night set and your Saturday night set, but then you have people that came to both nights. I feel like from now on, I hope that we can focus on those people that come one night of the year that they’ve traveled however many miles, they want to hear ‘Round Here Buzz,’ they get to hear ‘Round Here Buzz,’ and I still want it to be unique. I want it to be different, but I don’t know if I did another tour like this. I think that the Double Down Tour was as far as I want to go from a challenge point. I love that we did it. I love that it was a success. I love that there were people that came to both nights and go it. There were people that came to one of the two nights and got it, but at the same time, it’s not something I would do again. I think that’s good. I think that if you’re a fan, you got to see something that – we stretched and you’re not gonna get to see it again. I’ve been to some of those shows before, a fan of artists, and I knew that I was not gonna see this again. For the Double Down Tour, they saw something they’re never gonna see again.”

If you got the chance to see Eric this year, you understand how incredible the Double Down Tour was, but I think you can also see why he wouldn’t do it again. If you can only make one night of the weekend (like myself, and many others) you’re not going to get to hear every single Eric Church hit. Maybe he plays your favorite song on Friday and you have tickets for Saturday, or vice versa. The point is, Eric is always looking to make every single performance special for his fans, and going forward, the focus will be on individual nights, as opposed to individual cities.

Of course, hopefully we’ll still get to see his incredible “Mistress Named Music” medleys each night.

Eric will kick off the final leg of his Double Down Tour next month in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
