Unique seating option puts fans behind clear, 360-degree stage
(MILWAUKEE – March 28, 2017) – For the first time ever, 2016 CMA Album of the Year winner Eric Church will play two full sets with no support act on the tour, performing more than 30 songs each night with an intermission in between sets. Only three weekends into the tour, Church has entertained more than 125,000 fans on just nine stops, selling out every stop thus far while drawing capacity crowds.
“Choir Loft” seating for EMI Nashville recording artist Eric Church and his Holdin’ My Own Tour, coming to the Center on Friday, April 14 is still available. The unique seating option puts fans just behind the tour’s one-of-a-kind, 360-degree clear stage and makes them part of the show. Choir Loft tickets start at $29 plus applicable tax and fees while supplies last, and can be purchased now at www.ticketmaster.com
“We are so excited to bring Eric Church to Milwaukee – this innovative, 360-degree stage means that every seat is a great seat in the house,” said Steve Costello, the Center’s president and CEO. “We work hard to provide unmatched live entertainment experiences to fans and guests, and this tour’s unique and exciting approach will mean a great time for everyone in the building.”
Church’s fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood was recently named Album of the Year at the 50th annual CMA Awards, Nov. 2. After accepting the award Church said, “I always believed that, if you put everything into making the best record you can make, regardless of how you release it, and regardless of the press and the hype, that the music wins.” Mr. Misunderstood was released by surprise during the 2015 CMA Awards after sending more than 80,000 copies solely to his fan club, The Church Choir, and has since proven to be a critically-acclaimed album.
Church’s 2014-2015’s The Outsiders World Tour topped Billboard's Hot Tours consistently after Church set new attendance records in five markets including Chicago's Allstate Arena on March 20 with 18,626 present. Church also shattered Nashville's Bridgestone Arena attendance on January 10 with an unprecedented 18,411 fans assembled, surpassing The Blue Collar Comedy Tour’s record set on February 2006. On April 7, 2015 he also broke the attendance record at Grand Forks, N.D.’s Ralph Engelstad Arena, which was previously set by Sir Elton John's 2012 show. The Outsiders World Tour saw Church performing to more than 800,000 fans in more than 65 cities with nearly 20 stops from September 2014 through September of ‘15 and was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Must-See Tours.
