Eric Church has announced 2021/22 tour dates.
The tour, dubbed ‘Eric Church In The Round: The Gather Again Tour’, will visit 55 cities across North America. The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year will kick things off in Lexington, Kentucky on September 17th and will bring the run of dates to a conclusion at Madison Square Gardens on May 20th next year.
For the first time in his career, Church will adopt an in-the-round set up, with the stage at the centre of each Arena floor in order to accommodate as many fans as possible. “I just want to play shows,” Church said, “Politics’ job is to divide – that’s how you win elections. Those things that unite us are music and sports. The times when, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican or whatever, you throw your arm around the person next to you. We need that. I need that.” This new tour announcement confirms that Church won’t be appearing at the rearranged Country 2 Country Festival in 2022.
Church’s triple album ‘Heart & Soul’ is set to be released in stages later this month with the first, ‘Heart’, set for release April 16th.
