The big topic of conversation this week in country music and on social media has been Eric Church‘s announcement that he was canceling his show this weekend in San Antonio so that he could attend the Final Four matchup between his UNC Tar Heels and Duke with his family.
People have been dragging him all over social media, and several of his fellow country artists have also given their opinions on the move.
But Eric Church has always been one to take care of his fans.
So while this may have been a selfish move on his part (which he admitted in his statement), Church is going to do his best to make it right to everybody who missed out by giving them a FREE concert.
According to an email sent out to his fan club members, the Church Choir, Eric will be playing a free show at Whitewater Amphitheater in nearby New Braunfels, Texas on Friday, September 2.
“Thank you, San Antonio, for letting me take my family to this game. It took a minute to figure out how and when I could properly express my thanks. I will be coming to Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, TX on Friday, Sept 2, 2022 for a ONE of a kind FREE show for those of you who bought tickets and were planning to attend our canceled San Antonio show. Details to be announced soon.
Now I don’t know what Chief means by “one of a kind” show, but you’ve got to think this is going to be a pretty special show. Hell, I didn’t have tickets to the San Antonio show but I’d probably pay to go to this one because you’ve gotta think it’s going to be unlike any he’s ever done.
More details about the show will be announced later, but hopefully this helps to quiet the critics and puts some of the online bashing of Church to rest.
