Eric Church Goes Behind the Scenes Of Outsiders Tour
. (Radio.com) Few musicians are completely alone when they step onto a stage to perform. And in the case of country superstar and GRAMMY-nominee Eric Church, that's an understatement of massive proportions.
In a video feature that aired Thursday (Feb. 5) on CBS This Morning, reporter Mark Strassmann took viewers behind the scenes on Church's massive Outsiders world tour, as it packed up in Fresno, Calif., and then made its way south to Los Angeles.
What Strassmann uncovers is a massive production involving more than 100 crew members and some 170 tons of equipment, all of which needs to be loaded out in a matter of hours--then back into the new venue the following morning.
"This is a very large-scale production," tour manager Todd Bunch told Strassmann. Bunch's voice is calm and steady, but you can see in his eyes he's not kidding around. "A short day for us in 18 hours."
Bunch also notes that putting on a show of this scale is, as you might imagine, "very expensive. Just rolling down the road in 14 trucks and 12 buses, the fuel cost alone is amazing." Read more and watch the clip here.
