Country Singer Gets Crushed for Canceling Concert to Attend UNC vs. Duke Game

For some, March Madness is the only thing that matters.

Country music superstar Eric Church knows just how much the College Basketball tournament can mean. Church has canceled a huge concert this weekend so he can go watch his beloved UNC basketball team play Duke in the Final Four and his fanbase is not happy about it.

According to Church, this game only comes around once in a lifetime.

Via Country Now:

Eric Church’s concert planned for Saturday, April 2 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas has been canceled.

According to a letter sent to his fan club, The Church Choir, the superstar scraped the show to attend a once-in-a-lifetime Final Four game.

A letter was sent to fans who purchased tickets on Church’s behalf reads:

“To the Church Choir,

This Saturday, my family and I are going to stand together to cheer on the Tar Heels as the team has made it to the Final Four.

As a lifelong Caroline basketball fan, I’ve watched Carolina and Duke battle over the year 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.

This is also the most selfish thing I’ve ever asked the Choir to do: to give up your Saturday night plans with us so that I can have this moment with my family and sports community. However, it’s that same type of passion felt by the people who fill the seats at our concerts that makes us want to be part of a crowd at a game of this significance.

Woody Durham always said, “go where you go and do what you do,” thanks for letting me go here and be with the Tar Heels.”

The letter to fans revealed that “no action is required to obtain a refund.” Refunds will be processed to the original payment method used at the time of purchase.

Here are some not so happy reactions below:

What about the once in a lifetime opportunity to see Eric Church this weekend?

Does that not mean more than his once in a lifetime opportunity?

This is a tough one, miss work or go to a game…
