All week long, Eric Church has been teasing a big announcement with a series of cryptic posts across his socials. Today, The Chief has confirmed fans’ suspicions by announcing a blockbuster 2023 summer tour, The Outsiders Revival.
Since the original Outsiders World Tour in 2014, Church has been a lone wolf when it comes to playing live. But his 2023 The Outsiders Revival tour will feature a star-studded line-up of special guests, including Lainey Wilson, Midland, Whiskey Myers and more.
Also joining the sprawling tour will be Cody Jinks, Hailey Whitters, Jelly Roll, Ashley McBryde, Koe Wetzel, Parker McCollum, Travis Tritt, Elle King and Paul Cauthen.
Completing the line-up will be Jackson Dean, Morgan Wade, Muscadine Bloodline, Shane Smith & The Saints, Ray Wylie Hubbard and The Red Clay Strays.
Coming off the back of receiving the Billboard Music Award for Top Country Tour, Eric Church is charging into his 2023 set of shows with a tank full of momentum.
The tour kicks off with a special Summerfest performance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 22, which will be supported by Elle King. This is set to be followed by a show the next night in Detroit, Michigan featuring Ashley McBryde and The Red Clay Strays.
Commenting on the mammoth tour, The Chief underlined his determination to try a new approach, “When I approach touring, I’m always inspired by a new experience, a new way to gather, to express ourselves sonically and visually.
Whether it’s solo, in the round, double down; being able to bring a different perspective has always brought out our best creatively”.
The tour's eclectic mix of supporting artists will make each night truly distinct, with the opening acts varying from show to show.
The line-up features a number of established country heavyweights, such as Midland and Ashley McBryde, along with a suite of rising stars, from Parker McCollum to Jelly Roll, who will no doubt be performing his first ever Country Radio No. 1, ‘Son of a Sinner’.
The Outsiders Revival tour, the name a nod to Church's 2014 album and accompanying set of shows, will close in Tampa, Florida on September 30, with support from Southern rockers, Whiskey Myers.
