Eric Church’s October 5 Desperate Man release is one of the year’s most anticipated albums, and now fans have even more reasons to look forward to its release day: 37 of them to be exact.
Church’s 2019 Double Down Tour will see this month’s American Songwriter cover artist visit 19 cities (list below) to perform six albums worth of material across two very different nights of music as well as a stadium-sized tour stop in Nashville, Tennessee, more than doubling the capacity where he previously set Bridgestone Arena’s attendance record upon the finale stop of his Holdin’ My Own Tour in 2017.
Eric Church is hitting the road with the Double Down Tour in 2019 with 19 cities; 2 nights in each city, 2 unique shows, plus one huge Nashville stadium show. Members of the Choir get priority access to presale tickets. Sign up for the Church Choir now at https://t.co/ccGLkyyZMp pic.twitter.com/Dvszw9UzJs

In a candid cover-story interview in July, Rolling Stone praised Church for “pushing boundaries in a way that sounds natural and unforced.” The same goes for his touring in 2019, again foregoing an opening act and instead treating fans to dynamic marathon sets across back-to-back nights.
In keeping with Church’s commitment to giving his fan club — known as the Church Choir — priority access, they will be able to purchase tickets during the fan club presale.
To keep scalpers at bay and to ensure tickets end up in the hands of real fans, after the fan club presale, tickets will be sold during Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan presale. All fans interested in priority access to tickets should get verified. Registration begins Friday, Sept. 21 at 10 am CT.
Tickets inside Church’s stage will be made available exclusively to Church Choir members and only through the brand new Eric Church app. Church is taking full control of the very best seats inside the stage and offering them using cutting edge technology. Church Choir members will also have the opportunity to take advantage of exclusive hotel deals in all Double Down Tour cities plus additional surprises related to the tour. More information is available at ericchurch.com.
Desperate Man is available for preorder now, with the title track, “Heart Like A Wheel” and “Monsters” available upon preorder.

Eric Church (performing live for fans) OC: …that type of crowd. :38
“For me, every night, I try to empty the tank. There’s always that energy floating around. I mean, it’s a palpable thing, and it’s up to me to start that exchange and get the crowd to give it back to me and then watch it build on itself and just to have that experience. You know, we’ve got this night. You’re not going to see me for a while; you’re not going to see me for a while. I love being able to capitalize on that moment and trying to live in that moment and get as much energy exchange between us and the crowd as we can. I love that. That’s my favorite part of what we do. I love…I’m very passionate about my music, and I love people who are passionate about the music too, and I love playing a show for that type of crowd.”
