With a simple yet propitious promise that no two nights will ever be the same, Eric has fans repeatedly coming back for more. Last night's The Outsiders World Tour stop at Lincoln, Nebraska's Pinnacle Bank Arena further proved why the man Stereogum called "our greatest working rock star" has notched his fourth North America venue attendance record of 2015 with 15,823 present--a record previously held by Sir Elton John (November 23, 2014; attendance 14,368).

With his fervent band backing him the majority of the night, Church performed over two hours of original music with hits "Give Me Back My Hometown" and "Smoke A Little Smoke" interspersed by deeper album cuts like "Longer Gone" and "Livin' Part of Life" emerging from his vast arsenal.

"I'm humbled by the success this tour has had," Church adds. "The records it has set, by some of my muses and heroes, it's [all] very surreal. As an avid music fan, I'm not sure it's deserving in comparison to those I adore musically. I can only say this happened because, in my opinion, our fans are second to none."
