Some Eric Church fans aren’t too happy with The Chief after he canceled his upcoming concert in San Antonio this weekend.
The North Carolina native and avid Tar Heels fan sent a message to ‘The Church Choir’ explaining that he has chosen to cancel the Gather Again tour stop to attend the Final Four game between Duke and Carolina.
Two of the most bitter rivals in all of college basketball will go head to head in the Final Four in the NCAA tournament this Saturday.
Here’s Eric full statement:
“This Saturday, my family and I are going to stand together to cheer on the Tar Heels as the team has made it to the Final Four.
As a lifelong Carolina basketball fan, I’ve watched Carolina and Duke battle over the years but to have them matchup in the Final Four for the first time in history of the NCAA Tournament is any sports enthusiast dream.
This is also the most selfish thing I’ve ever asked the Choir to do: to give up your Saturday night plans with us so that I can have this moment with my family and sports community. However, it’s that same type of passion felt by the people who fill the seats at our concerts that makes us want to be part of a crowd at a game of this significance.
Woody Durham always said, ‘Go where you go and do what you do,’ thanks for letting me go here and be with the Tar Heels.’”
