Eric Church set a new arena record of 18,996 fans Friday night in Nashville. The concert was the first of a two-night, sold-out stand. In all, he played 39 songs during his two sets with the crowd standing the entire show. At one point, more than two hours into the show, he stopped to gather album covers and magazines, signing each, and handing them back to fans as the crowd cheered. His attendance surpassed 2015’s Bon Jovi attendance record by nearly 500 people. Although the weekend shows officially wrapped his Holdin’ My Own Tour, he just announced seven more concert dates for this year.
