Special guests Justin Moore and Kip Moore will join Church for the upcoming portion of the tour, including a November 8 stop at Honda Center. Tickets for the Anaheim show will go on sale Friday, June 15 at 10:00 AM at ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster retail locations or by calling (800) 732-1727.

In April, Eric Church: The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour was named No. 11 on Pollstar’s 2012 Worldwide Ticket Sales Chart for the first quarter, confirming the tour was one of the highest-attended across all genres of music from January through March.
Not only has The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour received huge response from fans, but it has also been met with praise by many outlets including The Boston Globe who wrote, “With his vivid songs, frenetic performances, and outsider allure, Church is a refreshing figure on the country scene.” The Reading Eagle added, “It’s been said a transcendent concert can resemble a religious experience, but this took it to a new level… the 34-year-old frequently exploded from the mic stand, arms pounding his chest, screaming at the crowd to boost an energy level that pyrotechnics and explosions had already elevated… the energy roared.”
Moreover, Church has tied The Blood Sweat & Beers Tour to a cause that will help those in need. Teaming up with Tickets-For-Charity.com, he is giving fans the opportunity to donate part of their purchase price to their favorite charity, and his partnering cause, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and its mission to find a cure for diabetes.

Travis Pastrana was rudely sent out of the X Games last summer when Andy Scott shunted him from behind during a qualifying round for the RallyCross event. Until that moment, the world had been looking forward to a meeting between Travis and eight-time (and soon to be nine-time) World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb, whose Citroen WRC team had specially shipped a car from France.
Now in a new episode of the YouTube series, ‘On Pace With Pastrana,’ we get to see the X Games as Travis experienced it. In part one below, Travis meets his idol, Loeb, and the two go head-to-head in go-karts at K1 Speed Torrance. Afterward, Travis and wife Lyn-Z take in the Moto X Step-Up and Best Trick competitions. Check it out…
A Main: A familiar face is back… KC Cook takes the 1st place podium in our GP Season Premier. KC as we know was a amazing competitor last season and proves once again to be another threat this season. It was a tough battle for 2nd place with Paul Ciralli, Kenny Takemoto, and Nicholas Haye rubbing bumpers during the entire race. Paul Ciralli eventually took 2nd place with 3rd and 4th place racers finishing bumper to bumper in the final lap. Overall a clean race to watch with one incident of some hard bump.
B Main: Race winner Michael Dozier took a commanding lead right out of turn one and never looked back. As the race field tried to catch-up to the leader some heavy bumping ensued during the middle of the race. Second place finisher Jason Kooken displayed some precision driving to make his way through the race field to gain a second place showing. Fun race to watch with some great drivers showing off there racing talents.
C Main: First place podium goes to Steve Butscher. Steve was remarkable quick in establishing his race lead and maintained a health lead throughout the race. The race to watch was going to see whom would eventually grab the second and third place podiums. Jake Hernandez, Benjamin Ku, and Keith Takemoto all charged hard and showcased some great pacing maneuvers between the three of them. In the end Jake and Benjamin repectivley finished 2nd and 3rd.
