His arena-headlining tour, The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, has sold over 500,000 tickets thus far in 2012, and now platinum-selling EMI Records Nashville recording artist Eric Church will perform at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Friday, December 14th with special guests Justin Moore and Kip Moore. Since the release of his RIAA-certified platinum album CHIEF, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart across all genres, Church has celebrated two No. 1 singles in “Drink In My Hand,” and “Springsteen,” a platinum-selling genre-bending ode to The Boss. Current single “Creepin’” is also swiftly climbing up the country Billboard charts. Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public at 10am on Friday, September 21st.
Not only has The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour received huge response from fans, but it has also been met with praise by many outlets including The Boston Globe who wrote, “With his vivid songs, frenetic performances, and outsider allure, Church is a refreshing figure on the country scene.” The Reading Eagle added, “It’s been said a transcendent concert can resemble a religious experience, but this took it to a new level… the 34-year-old frequently exploded from the mic stand, arms pounding his chest, screaming at the crowd to boost an energy level that pyrotechnics and explosions had already elevated… the energy roared.”
Church received his first CMA Awards nomination last year for New Artist of the Year. A year later, he tops the list of nominees with five including Male Vocalist; Album for Chief ; Single of the Year for “Springsteen,”; Song of the Year for “Springsteen,”; and Music Video of the Year for “Springsteen”.
In an effort to combat scalpers and the potential re-sale of tickets at inflated prices, a portion of the lower bowl of the arena for this show will be sold as paperless tickets. Guests who purchase seats in designated “paperless ticketed areas” will not receive a physical ticket for entry into the venue. They will need to bring the credit card they used for purchase and a government-issued ID to the venue on the night of the event for entry.
