Church tours with Chesney
Monday, November 10, 2014
– Eric Church will join Kenny Chesney on his Big Revival Tour for five dates next year.
"Some of the most fun I've ever had on tour was last summer with Kenny," Church said. "He's an artist that isn't afraid to let you come full blast and do what you do. It's rare you get to tour with someone you respect and you are friends with. I can't wait to do it again."
"There is something about the way Eric connects with my audience," said Chesney. "He attacks the stage with so much force - and his songs really speak to the people who're fighting the fight to get by - and I love that about what he does onstage."
The Big Revival Tour dates featuring Eric Church are :
Saturday, May 9 Indianapolis, In. at Lucas Oil Stadium
Saturday, May 30 Pittsburgh, Pa. at Heinz Field
Saturday, June 13 Atlanta, Ga. at The Georgia Dome
Saturday, July 11 Philadelphia, Pa. at Lincoln Financial Field
Saturday, Aug. 22 Detroit, Mich. at Ford Field
Chesney is doing a 10-date stadium tour with Jason Aldean, but none of the dates with Church also include Aldean.

Concert Review: Turner pleases the traditionalists
Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry. In short, he is the embodiment of country music's champion of the everyman. This night was special for him. He was celebrating an anniversary with his wife and his 18th with his label MCA.... »»»
Concert Review: Not much really changes for LaFarge
Just one look at the stage made it clear that this was not going to be a typical night with Pokey LaFarge. There were only a few guitars to be seen, which meant that LaFarge was going it alone.
"I've been touring for years with a band," LaFarge told perhaps a few hundred people before he had even played a note.... »»»

For a brief moment last summer, the news of Tony Kinman's death was, if not greatly exaggerated, then at least fortuitously premature.
