    Eric Church concert this Saturday in Guthrie Center

    Who's all going? Who's all been to this event before?

    Just curious as to what time I should get there to get a decent seat. I assume this is a bring your lawn chair type of thing? Any info would be outstanding. Thanks!

    I have been wanting to see Eric Church in concert for awhile now but unfortunately have to be out of town this weekend! I have no clue what the seating will be like Chris, there are some kind of grandstand seating there but it's not exactly a huge county fairgrounds by any means either. This is basically the grandstand area I got from their website Guthrie County Fair

    Best concert I've ever been to was Church's last year in Council Bluffs. Wish you could make it!

    From some people who are originally from the area and have attended this thing regularly that they are expecting record turnout, in fact they will be shattering the previous record. Thinking it has a lot to do with the Big Country Bash being cancelled this year.

    Also, I saw an Eric Church semi heading east on I-80 yesterday at Merle Hay Rd. Must have been lost?

    I saw him in Council Bluffs as well and also count it as the greatest live show I have seen!

    Edit: Tried to rep you, CW, but you are so awesome that I have to spread it around!

    Hope he's not heading to Grundy Center.

    I will be there. I would bring a chair if you could there have been over 20,000 tix sold and by the pic you can see the grandstand wont hold that many people. Should be a good time. Are you gonna hit up the party there the night before?

    Re: Eric Church concert this Saturday in Guthrie Center

    I'm going, i think I'm just going to throw some chairs in the back of the car to be safe. The website says the show is at 7 and the gates open at 4. Is it me or does that seem like a really long time to sit there with no music.

    Good link. I went to HS in Panora so not far from my old stomping grounds either. Looking at the 2009 opener photos, I know one of those guys! He has an acuoustic band that performs at some small town events and local taverns: Dirt Road Acoustic Rehab


    CW, very tempted to go see Eric Church at the Sprint Center in KC on 9/29 but that's the night before the TT game so not really sure I want to deal with the logistics involved in order to do that. I'm surprised Hilton or WF Arena has not tried to book him yet. He's on tour this fall with Justin Moore and Kip Moore which will probably sell well.

    20 K sold? Even with lawn chairs, how is everybody gonna fit? I'll be ****** if this turns into another Big Country Bash. That was the worst event I've ever been to in my life last year.

    I think they had a big show last year too, hopefully they've got it all figured out.

    Re: Eric Church concert this Saturday in Guthrie Center

    I think they've had 2 or 3 before this. From what I hear, it's progressively gotten bigger. Hopefully they worked out the kinks the past few years.

    This will have an incredible turnout. I wouldn't be shocked if.its a huge clusterf*** of people. With Eric Church in a small town Iowa, it will be a record amount for Guthrie

    I read that the kid who puts this thing together booked Church just before he hit mega-star status. He tried to back out of the contract, but they managed to hang onto him.
