Eric Church brings The Outsiders World Tour to Boston Thursday April 30 at the TD Banknorth Garden. The show begins at 7p.m.
Church's tour is in support of The Outsiders, his 2014 release, his fourth album overall.
From Church's website: "It's outsiders, plural, because it's not just about me," Church affirms. "If you look at the cover art, it's me and my band. And in the video, we're coming through the gates, and the fans are coming through behind us. Those people that have always been a part of this journey, and this is where we all get to stand up and say, 'We're here now. You could close the doors on us and brush us off before, but now we're coming through.'"
Church has also supported 'Chief Cares' a non-profit serving 2.5 million people with charitable giving in Tennessee. Donations have supported underprivileged families in Tennessee, as well as in Church's home state of North Carolina. If you purchase a Chief Cares Platinum Seat at an upcoming show, you will be guaranteed a great spot at the venue, plus much of the proceeds goes to the Chief Cares organization.
Church began performing at age 13. Instead of pursuing a marketing degree from Appalachian State, he moved to Nashville. His first album, 2006’s Sinners Like Me yielded three Top 20 hits. His popularity grew with the release of his second album, 2009’s Carolina, and 2011's groundbreaking Chief. That album gave Church three No. 1 singles, including “Springsteen” and “Drink in My Hand,” and won both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music Album of the Year awards.
The Outsiders helped Church earn four Grammy Award nominations, including Best Country Album and Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for “Give Me Back My Hometown."
