Eric Church plays acoustic show after flu sidelines his crew

Eric Church 1.31.15

Well here's something that doesn't happen everyday. Over the weekend, nearly all of Eric Church's crew and band came down with a stomach bug that made them pretty much useless for Saturday night's show. Rather than cancel his Salt Lake City performance and risk disappointing fans, however, Eric decided to get up on stage and perform all 19 songs nearly alone.

“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 am I,” Church told the crowd. “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. It’s just me. I’m going to give you everything I got.”

He then announced he’d be back Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, to perform a full show. 

I don't know, judging by the crowd's reaction to Eric performing Homeboy, I'd say the crowd was digging the acoustic show.
