New experiences are the order of the day today for the chief.
Eric Church has announced a 27-date tour that will not only see him play outdoor amphitheaters for the first time, but also plan a tour for the Summer for the first time also. Starting on June 22 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the tour will finish up on September 30 in Tampa, Florida.
Announcing on social media, the chief stated, "We have never done an outdoor summer tour. Never headlined amphitheaters. Never brought a summer experience to your town that featured artists we want to share the summer with. Until now. See you in the season of sunshine with some fellow outsiders that shine brightest when the sun goes down".
The aforementioned 'outsiders' that Church is speaking of are the wealth of support acts that will be joining him for the shows. This is the first time Church is bringing a support act out with him since the Outsiders Tour in 2014, having instead taken to playing wild, hours-long sets himself over the last few years.
Whiskey Myers, Cody Jinks, Jelly Roll, Ashley McBryde, Koe Wetzel and Lainey Wilson will all join the chief for a set of dates, as well as Midland, Parker McCollum, Travis Tritt, Elle King, Paul Cauthen, Jackson Dean and Morgan Wade. To close up the wealth of acts, Muscadine Bloodline, Shane Smith & The Saints, Hailey Whitters, Ray Wylie Hubbard & The Red Clay Strays will also play select dates.
Around a week after the initial announcement, Eric Church announced an extra date at Orange Beach, Alabama on August 17. Along with the other two Orange Beach shows, this will be supported by Jackson Dean and Bell Bottom Country star, Lainey Wilson.
Due to the unsurprisingly immense popularity of the tour, Eric Church has also added a couple of extra dates in George, WA, with Jelly Roll and Hailey Whitters, along with six new shows in Charleston, SC; Toronto, ON; Rogers, AR; Saratoga, NY; Atlanta, GA; and Charlotte, NC.
