2020 was a horrible year for SO many different reasons. It felt like we couldn't do anything the way we're used to. We couldn't eat a restaurant. We couldn't meet friends at a bar. We couldn't gather with extended family for a celebration. We couldn't gather with fellow music lovers to sing away and forget our troubles for one night at a concert.

2020 sucked, and so far 2021 sucks too. Thank goodness Eric Church just gave us something MAJOR to look forward to...finally!

Before I get to the exciting news, let me just remind you that Eric Church is on a mission to 'save concerts' and says; "you've got to get needles in arms".

As an incentive to join his mission, Eric Church just announced 'The Gather Again Tour', and it includes a concert date in Chicago! Here are the details...

  • WHAT: Eric Church 'The Gather Again Tour'
  • WHERE: United Center in Chicago
  • WHEN: Friday, March 11, 2022
  • TICKETS ON SALE: Friday, May 7, 2021 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com

Yes, I know we have to wait until next year for this concert, BUT at least it's happening! No other details have been released about the show yet, but I'm thinking it may be a good idea to get your COVID-19 vaccine now so you are 100% ready to roll when March 2022 rolls around.

Finally, don't forget Eric Church is releasing his triple album, "Heart & Soul" this month, and the first album, "Heart" hits stores on April 16th!  Get more details, here.
