Eric Church launches his Blood, Sweat and Beers tour January 19 in Arkansas, and it's shaping up to be one of country's hottest tour for 2012. Fans snatched up tons of tickets when they first went on sale, and Eric tells ABC News Radio, "I was blown away. We're going to sell most of these rooms out. We didn't think that was gonna happen. We just hoped we'd make a good showing."
Now that Eric knows he's going to be playing to packed houses, he's making some adjustments to make sure the folks in the nosebleed seats still get a great show. He's not sacrificing music for production value though.
"You can only blow up so much stuff," Eric says. "You've got to get to a point where the music carries it. We still try to keep it that way, but make it interesting and maybe make it something that country music fans haven't seen before. "
Brantley Gilbert is joining Eric on the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour.
