Eric Church is all over the news and it’s definitely not for the right reasons. The music star has canceled a huge concert this weekend so he can watch his basketball team play. Naturally, his fans are upset.
According to TMZ, Church announced the cancellation in a message to his supporters on Tuesday. Eric explained that he wanted to watch the Tar Heels game on Saturday night so badly that he won’t be able to perform at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. The music star wanted to watch his favorite UNC basketball team play Duke in the Final Four.
“I’ve watched Carolina and Duke battle over the year,” Church said, “but to have them matchup in the Final Four for the first time in history of the NCAA Tournament is any sports enthusiast’s dream.” Although Church called the move the most selfish thing he’s ever asked of his fans he also implored his fans to understand because the game just means that much to him.
However, his fans weren’t here for it. They stormed his official Facebook page to let off their frustration. While some called him a clown, others said they’d boycott his concerts going forward.
The game is being heralded as one of the biggest college basketball games ever. To be fair to Eric, the music star does love Carolina too much. He has got a hit sing about it!
