Eric Church has essentially quadrupled down after adding an array of late-summer and fall tour dates to his 2019 Double Down Tour. Things are going so well so far, so it made sense for the country music superstar to fit more tour dates into this year. The staging of every tour date involves incredible work and orchestration behind the scenes in each venue, in order to make sure everything is ready to host the biggest acts in country music. The recently-announced addition will begin in September and extend through late-November. Tickets to all Eric Church 2019 concerts are available to the general public.
Born in Granite Falls, North Carolina in early-May of 1977, Kenneth Eric Church will soon celebrate his 42nd birthday. His story is unique in many ways but also similar in several ways to folks who have gone from being a youngster interested in the guitar and singing to a global country music superstar. It initially began when he saved up enough money to buy his first guitar at age 13. Fast-forward to his senior year in high school, and he was able to secure a regular performing gig at a Granite Falls watering establishment.
He made the move to Nashville – as just about every country music singer on the Billboard charts in the last 15 years has – in his late-teens. Fate smiled upon a young Church, as he fell in love with his high school sweetheart, whose father tried desperately to encourage him into a white-collar career and lifestyle. Lucky for his millions of fans, an 18-year-old Church followed his heart to Nashville.
His first studio album was released in 2006 when he was in his mid-20s. It shot to the top of the US Country charts, peaking as high as #7. It flew as high as #9 on the US Billboard Charts, which equated to a very impressive debut album in the modern era. He used the recognition and profits of over a half million in album sales in the US alone to begin to make a name for himself, and Church’s second studio album dropped in late-March 2009, reaching #4 on country charts and #17 overall on the US Billboard.
Come 2011 and the release of Chief, Eric Church truly established himself as modern-day country music royalty. The album is approaching 2 million in sales in the US as of press time, and it was a Billboard overall #1 hit. The same goes for his 2014 release entitled The Outsiders, which quickly reached #1 on the Canadian overall charts as well. 2015’s Mr. Misunderstood did big things, and the release of Desperate Man in October of last year was a springboard for the beginning of this large and impressive tour. A total of six studio albums give them plenty of chart-topping hits to choose from when putting together a set list, which has deviated slightly from locale to locale but has included many of his most recognizable tracks.
Double Down Tour
Already-announced tour dates will unfold throughout the upcoming months in places such as Pittsburgh, Denver and Los Angeles before the tour returns to Church’s semi-home of Nashville, Tennessee on May 25. The newly- announced dates will begin with shows at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin on September 13 and September 14. A week later, two huge shows will unfold inside of the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta on September 20 and 21. The theme of two shows at each stop will continue when the 2019 Double Down Tour visits Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for shows on October 11 and October 12 at the Wells Fargo Center.
On October 25, a single show will be staged at Verizon Arena in Little Rock, Arkansas, followed by a show in Manchester, New Hampshire on November 1 and a concert in Hartford, Connecticut on the following evening. Sizable breaks in the tour schedule give Church, his band and his opening acts chances to not only relax and re-energize, but also enjoy the places they are visiting on a personal level.
Two shows in the Nation’s Capital will take place on November 15 and November 16. The recently-announced addition to the tour is currently scheduled to conclude with performances on November 22 and 23 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. Opened to the public just a few years ago after being built in the heart of a grid-based downtown region, the venue replaces the former Arco Arena, which was situated seven or eight miles to the North of downtown Sac – on the outskirts of Sacramento. All locals and those throughout Northern California interested in attending this show or any others would be wise to begin their search for Eric Church 2019 Double Down Tour Tickets here.
