Fans in the Lake Tahoe area will have to wait another year to see Eric Church.
The superstar has rescheduled his two concerts at Harveys Outdoor Arena “due to public safety and the fires in the area.”
Church made the announcement on Tuesday (Aug. 24), confirming that the shows scheduled for this Friday, August 27 and Saturday, August 28 have been rescheduled for August 27 and 28 of 2022.
Those who purchased tickets can hold on to them for next year’s shows.
Fans who are unable to attend the new dates can request a refund from Ticketmaster within the next 30 days.
According to SFGate.com, Lake Tahoe is currently the absolute worst possible in North America place for wildfire smoke right now. Air quality officials report that the Reno Tahoe region and Central Sierra Nevada have the most toxic air in the country.
The situation is being described as “apocalyptic.”
The Guardian reports that the fire near Lake Tahoe is only 9% contained and has become the United States’ number one priority for firefighting resources.
Fellow country star Dierks Bentley was scheduled to play the same venue on August 22 and was also forced to reschedule.
Church, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, is set to embark on his The Gather Again Tour on September 17, 2021. The tour is set to visit 55-cities through May 20, 2022.
