Eric Church will play twice the shows on his newly announced Double Down Tour, which gets underway January 18th and follows the October release of his new album Desperate Man.

Church has steadily elevated his touring game to become one of live music’s biggest draws, playing marathon two-set shows with no opener on his Holdin’ My Own Tour in 2017. For this next outing, he’ll stretch things out over 48 hours, playing two completely unique shows in each of the 19 cities on his itinerary. Beginning with a pair of dates January 18th and 19th in Omaha, Nebraska, the trek winds through June and includes a May 25th stop at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium — the lone date without a second-night companion.

Tickets for a handful of will go on sale October 5th, the same day Desperate Man arrives. Members of the Church Choir fan club will have early access to tickets, then they’ll be sold through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan presale, as part of Church’s commitment to weeding out scalpers. Among the ticket offerings this time around will be spots actually inside Church’s stage, available exclusively to Church Choir members and through Church’s new smartphone app.

To date, Church has released the songs “Desperate Man,” “Heart Like a Wheel” and “Monsters” as a preview of the new project. The album’s title track, which Church wrote with Ray Wylie Hubbard, came about after feeling his creativity drained in the wake of the Route 91 shooting in Las Vegas.

“I was a little lost for a while. I think like a lot of people I was in a little bit of a funk after something like that,” he told Rolling Stone. “I was still a little burned out. A little bit going through the motions.”
