Eric Church’s concert planned for Saturday, April 2 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas has been canceled. 

According to a letter sent to his fan club, The Church Choir, the superstar scraped the show to attend a once-in-a-lifetime Final Four game.

A letter was sent to fans who purchased tickets on Church’s behalf reads: 

“To the Church Choir,

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 Caroline basketball fan, I’ve watched Carolina and Duke battle over the year but to have them matchup in the Final Four for the first time in history of the NCAA Tournament is any sports enthusiast’s 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.”

The letter to fans revealed that “no action is required to obtain a refund.” Refunds will be processed to the original payment method used at the time of purchase.

Church’s next scheduled tour date is set for Friday, April 1 in Fort Worth, Texas at Dickies Arena. The Gather Again Tour will resume on April 9, 2022 in New Orleans, LA at the Smoothie King Center. 

In addition to the previously announced arena shows, the North Carolina native will also perform several Stadium tour dates later this year.
