“I cannot wait to get back on the road and play live music with my good friends,” Church said in a video on Twitter.

Though COVID protocols are listed for other stops on the tour, Church has not yet posted any details for the New Hampshire concert.

In a news release announcing the tour, Church, who publicly talked about getting the COVID vaccine, described  having “passionately taken a leadership role in the industry’s return to touring.”

“It became very clear to me that the only way to really get back to normal is through vaccinations. You’ve got to get needles in arms,” he said in a quote shared in the news release.
