Country star Eric Church has rescheduled his Sept. 7 concert at the Austin360 Amphitheater for April 28, 2018, “in light of the extensive devastation throughout the state of Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey,” the venue announced Friday.
“There is a time and place for everything, and we really feel that now is not the time for us to play in Texas,” Church said in the statement, which also cited the postponement of a show at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion near Houston. “Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all.”
Church also announced that proceeds from ticket sales for the 2018 Houston and Austin shows will go directly to Houston relief charities, and he invited first-responders to the storm to attend the shows for free (with details to be announced later).
Refunds for those not able to attend the rescheduled date will be given at the original point of purchase.
