Eric Church has yet to play the exact same set of songs at any of his shows so far on The Outsiders World Tour. Instead of sticking with a fixed rundown of songs, Eric encourages his fans to write down the titles of their favorite songs from his back catalog on posters and bring them to the show. Some of those fans are requesting songs Eric and his band haven’t played in five or six years.
Eric tells The Oklahoman, “The most fun is grabbing that sign and turning around and seeing the band members shaking their head ‘no’ and the other half going, ‘you know, lets try it.'”
Eric admits they usually mess up playing the unrehearsed song, but it provides an off-the-cuff moment for his concert crowds.
“I think that goes back to that’s a unique experience for that show, for that crowd,” Eric explains. “They can say, ‘Hey, that was the show that he messed up that one number [on] the sign.'”
