Chip books Church for 2018 Sturgis Rally

STURGIS, S.D. (KEVN TV) - Guess it is never too early to plan for the next Sturgis Rally; especially when it comes to entertainment at the Buffalo Chip.

The Buffalo Chip announced its first headliner for the 2018 rally – country music artist Eric Church.

Church will perform on the Chip’s Wolfman Jack stage Aug. 8.

Pollstar named his 2017 “Holdin’ My Own Tour” as the most attended music tour in the world, selling out every stop.

Church is currently nominated for three Country Music Association Awards, vying for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year.

“Fans have been requesting country rock like crazy, and so we went right to the top with Eric Church,” stated Buffalo Chip president Rod Woodruff. “There isn’t a better choice to kick off the list of stars performing in 2018 with a superstar of his caliber. He’s one of America’s top acts, and he is bringing a smoking-hot show to the best party anywhere.”

The Buffalo Chip will have nine nights of concerts, running from Aug. 3 to Aug. 12 next year.
