Church posted a note to his Twitter account announcing a free show in San Antonio suburb New Braunfels, Texas on Sept. 2, 2022, for ticket holders of his April 2, 2022, show. Church described himself as a lifelong North Carolina basketball fan in a note this week to his fan club announcing the cancelation of his Saturday show at San Antonio’s AT&T Center.
“As a lifelong Carolina basketball fan, I’ve watched Carolina and Duke battle over the years,” Church said. “But to have them matchup in the Final Four for the first time in the history of the NCAA Tournament is any sports enthusiast’s dream,” Church wrote.
The Final Four field was set Sunday. No. 8-seed North Carolina defeated No. 15-seed Saint Peter’s 69-49 Sunday to win the NCAA Tournament’s East Region. No. 2-seed Duke defeated No. 4-seed Arkansas 78-69 to win the West Region.
Duke and North Carolina meet in Game 2 of the Final Four on Saturday night. On March 5, North Carolina defeated No. 4-ranked Duke 94-81 in Durham, spoiling retiring head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final home game as the Blue Devils’ head coach. Church plans to be in New Orleans to attend the game.
San Antonio-area fans will appreciate a free Church show after having their previous tickets refunded. Those who made travel plans to attend the San Antonio show, however, might not be satisfied.
