Eric Church Cancels San Antonio Show To Watch UNC-Duke In Final Four

Country superstar Eric Church has canceled his April 2 concert at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, so that he can watch the Final Four match between his favorite basketball team the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils.

“This is the most selfish thing I’ve asked the Choir to do: give up your Saturday night plans with us so that I can have this moment with my family and sports community,” Church said in the statement provided by Ticketmaster to ticket holders.

He added, “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 the history of the NCAA Tournament is any sports enthusiast’s dream.”

Church said he hoped his fans would understand since the passion he felt for UNC was the same type of loyalty they showed him when they filled seats at his concerts.

“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,” Church wrote.
