BRINGS “THE OUTSIDERS WORLD TOUR” TO RUSHMORE PLAZA CIVIC CENTER IN RAPID CITY ON MAY 22, 2015
Tickets Go On-Sale Friday, January 23rd @ 10am at www.gotmine.com
EMI Nashville recording artist Eric Church will bring “The Outsiders World Tour” to Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Ice Arena in Rapid City, SD on May 22nd, 2015. Tickets will go on-sale to the general public on Friday, January 23rd @ 10am.
By popular demand, Church is adding dates to his THE OUTSIDERS WORLD TOUR! A tour that features a one-of-a-kind, wide-open, 360 degree stage that’s decked out with 10 different microphone placements. Eric is focused on “turning the arena into a club where it all started,” so behind the stage – but almost close enough to touch – is THE CHOIR LOFT. The CHOIR LOFT is a section with seating a mere 10 rows off the floor in most venues, these seats start at eye level with Church. There is limited seating in this section, but no matter where you sit this show is exciting and unlike any other. See what some other folks had to say:
“Country’s most compelling live act” Minneapolis’ Star-Tribune,
Rolling Stone wrote “The guy doesn’t just sing — he shouts, cackles, croons and generally freaks the hell out. Church may claim to be an outsider, and his music does place him on the fringes of pretty much any single genre… but last night, the dude was king.”
Cleveland’s Plain-Dealer said the tour “…showcased a singer-songwriter who is at the top of his game.”
Grand Rapids Press called him “…a truly modern artist… [who] can almost effortlessly bridge what appears to be a vast chasm between genres…. [and that] Church is a more accomplished songwriter than his new-country contemporaries…”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch summed it up, writing “Church proved while he sings about being an outsider, he’s mastered all the tricks of a superstar act.”
A limited number of VIP tickets for each show are 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.
Church’s current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year. The album features his No. 1 hit “Give Me Back My Hometown” and his current hit single “Talladega.” He has received four CMA Award nominations in 2014 for Album of the Year (The Outsiders), Male Vocalist of the Year, Single and Song of the Year (both for “Give Me Back My Hometown”). The Outsiders is the follow-up to Church’s Platinum-certified album Chief, (named the 2012 Album of the Year by both CMA and ACM, and GRAMMY-nominated for Best Country Album) which featured five Top 20 singles: “Homeboy” (certified Platinum for sales in excess of one million singles); the Top 10 “Like Jesus Does” and the Top 5 “Creepin’” (both certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 singles each); and two No. 1 hits “Drink in My Hand” (certified Platinum) and “Springsteen” (certified Double Platinum for sales in excess of two million singles). Church’s 2006 debut album, Sinners Like Me (2006) and his sophomore album Carolina (2009) are both RIAA Gold-certified. Carolina had three hit singles: the Top 10 “Hell on the Heart” as well as Top 20 hit “Smoke A Little Smoke” and Top 10 smash “Love Your Love The Most,” which were both certified Gold. Sinners Like Me spawned three Top 20 singles: “How ‘Bout You,” “Two Pink Lines,” and “Guys Like Me.” Visit www.ericchurch.com for more information.
