Eric Church knows what a bummer it is to have your Saturday night plans ruined by a concert cancellation. So rather than pull the plug on his show in Salt Lake City after a stomach bug knocked out most of his band and crew, Eric gave the crowd something special then promised them more to come.
“If you’ve seen our show so far on this tour, you’re probably wondering what the hell is going on right now. Well, so I am. Here’s the deal, yesterday we had the stomach flu strike our band, our crew, everyone. We had no one to hang video, lights, nothing. But I’m still here. I’m still standing. We’ve talked about how every show on the Outsiders Tour is different. Well tonight, will be the most different one. Shit there’s nobody left, its just me. I’m going to give you everything I got. We have a couple band guys that feel ok to get up and down here. Here’s the deal - on Memorial Day…
