ARTS Pick: Eric Church

Party boy hunk Eric Church leads his fans to worship at the John Paul Jones Arena. Party boy hunk Eric Church leads his fans to worship at the John Paul Jones Arena.

Country megastar Eric Church operates in threes. Hat, sunglasses, and stubble are his distinctive on-stage accoutrements. Blood, sweat, and beers are not only a lifestyle for the devout Church-goers who come to his concerts, but the name of his record-breaking arena tour. Chief, his recent platinum album, is his third studio output. Church seamlessly weaves country-fried rowdiness with a self-aware, smirking wit, and is just as comfortable penning chart-toppers like the emotive ode to youth “Springsteen,” as he is with the raucous “Drink In My Hand.”

Saturday 10/27 $35.50-45.50, 7:30pm. John Paul Jones Arena, 295 Massie Rd. 243-4960.
