It's been a long and I mean, "long" time since we've had a big concert in Western New York. Since the country was shut down due to the COVID-19 vaccine in March of 2020, it's been extremely tough for concert-goers, not just in Buffalo, but everywhere around the U.S.

The last major country concert in Buffalo was Kane Brown at the KeyBank Center in early March of 2020 (just before the pandemic began), but there's a new show on the docks for downtown and country fans can't wait.

According to his social media announcement, country music superstar Eric Church has announced new tour dates starting in September of 2021 and one of the first shows will be in Buffalo!

Church will be performing at the KeyBank Center on September 25th!

Eric Church will embark on his "Gather Again" tour, which made music fans everywhere go crazy this morning. The tour begins on September 17th in Lexington, Kentucky. Buffalo will be just over a week later.

General public ticket sales begin on May 7th. Eric Church's fan club (Church Choir) will be able to get tickets starting on May 4th.

Eric Church has been pumping out hits since his career began in 2006. He's known for huge smashes such as "Drink In My Hand," "Springsteen," "Give Me Back My Hometown," "Record Year," "Some of It" and "Hell of a View."

We can't wait!
