It was five songs in to his set before Eric Church addressed the sold-out crowd at the CHI Health Center in snowy Omaha, Nebraska on Friday night, the first of two shows kicking off the Double Down Tour, proclaiming “it’s gonna be a journey, so buckle up... We’re gonna have a lot of fun tonight.” He stood beneath a 137,000-pound lighting rig that ran from his stage all the way to the back row of the arena on the 10-bus and 18-truck tour, clearly enjoying his return to the stage after a 16-month hiatus from touring to write, record and release Desperate Man.
April 19-21, 2018, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco had a ‘this is it’ moment taking the stage knowing he had sold-out five shows at the legendary Radio City Music Hall which were taped for what would become his new Netflix Original special– Stay Hungry – streaming now. Across those five shows, he performed for 28,312 long-time fans and early believers in his unique comedic voice. It was a pinnacle moment that ultimately led to his decision to make the leap to “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden.
Praised by the Los Angeles Times as “one of Nashville’s most forthright truth-tellers,” Eric Church has started the new year strong as his latest single “Some Of It” earns most-added distinction with 46 first-day stations.
Comedian, actor and best-selling author Sebastian Maniscalco is having “the biggest week of his career” to-date according to Entertainment Weekly.

Dubbed “comedy’s new superstar” in a profile Friday by “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt,” Maniscalco stopped by SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” for a 90-minute interview with the King of All Media today to discuss his new Netflix special, “Stay Hungry” (filmed at the Legendary Radio City Music Hall) streaming now, acting with Viggo Mortensen in the award-winning film Green Book, his blockbuster tour and more.
