Eric Church Doubles Down With Innovative New Tour Route

Eric Church's upcoming album Desperate Man is done, and while fans eagerly await its October 5 release, the country star's giving them even more to look forward to.

The "Monsters" singer announced a North American tour run to support the album release, and it's unlike anything he's ever done before. The Double Down Tour sees Church performing two nights in 18 different cities. Like his Holdin' My Own Tour, the 41-year-old won't have an opening band and will play an extended three-hour set. Each night plans to be its own unique show.

Only one of the stops won't adhere to the two-night format. Church's May 25 Nashville date is one night at Nissan Stadium. The venue has a capacity of more than double that of Bridgestone Arena, where the country crooner broke an attendance record on May 26-27, 2017.

Church announced the news via a Twitter video on Friday (September 21). Check out the post below.

The Double Down tour kicks off January 18, 2019 in Omaha, Nebraska. You can get ticket info here and check out a full list of dates below.
