Eric Church Announces the Outsiders World Tour
Eric Church has announced the dates for his 2014 the Outsiders World Tour.
The arena tour is slated to kick off Sept. 11 in Bossier City, La. and run through 31 dates before wrapping up in Birmingham, Ala. on Dec. 13.
Dwight Yoakam will be featured as the special guest for the entire tour, with a rotating roster of Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark and hard rock band Halestorm serving as opening acts on various dates.
Highlights of the tour will include dates at Madison Square Garden, Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the Sprint Center in Kansas City, the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Atlanta, Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, and FedExForum in Memphis, among others. Church will also return to the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C. where he sold more than 15,000 tickets in 2012 as part of his Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, which Pollstar named a Top Tour of 2012.
While Church's last headlining arena tour employed a series of backdrops as the focus of the show, the Outsiders World Tour will utilize a new, high-tech design that will offer fans a 360-degree view of Church and his band.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale on April 18 in select markets, with more information available at Church's website. Members of the Church Choir will have special access to a pre-sale that starts on April 15. The best seats for the Outsiders World Tour will be paperless, so fans get them instead of scalpers.
A limited number of VIP tickets for each show will also be available for purchase. Each VIP ticket includes a premium ticket in the first 15 rows or in the general admission pit, an invitation to a pre-show party at the Outsiders Joint, a two song acoustic pre-show performance by Eric Church, a limited edition show poster, and a dedicated VIP concert concierge.
Fans who would like to gain access to exclusive pre-sale tickets can join the Church Choir here.
