After potentially dangerous weather forced the "Taste of Country" headliner to cancel his show Friday night, on Monday, country star Eric Church promised to come back to Buffalo for a make-good concert.

Church's message for his fans was simple: he is coming back to Buffalo and he plans on doing it very soon, to make up for the canceled show on Friday night at the Taste of Country, after many concert-goers waited for hours in the rain and wind to see the popular country singer.

Church spoke to WYRK's "Breakfast Club" Monday morning, and says there is a concert in the works which will be free for all those ticket-holders from Friday night's show.

"Buffalo means a lot to me, the city means a lot to me," Church said, "We're coming back and we're coming back soon. And do a show for everybody for free. Everybody that has their ticket gets in."

Weather delayed the headliner's performance for more than an hour Friday night, but because of high winds and rain organizers say they were forced to cancel the show altogether for safety reasons.

"We were sitting on go, we were ready, and the decision was made on faith. And it turned out that the show didn't happen, but we made a decision that thats not how we wanted to go out, that we wanted to come play a show," Church told WYRK.

Church and concert organizers then apologized to fans, and the man currently touring on the "Blood, Sweat, and Beers Tour" told fans not to worry, he will be back.

The singer went on to say that he plans on playing that make-up show as soon as possible. A WYRK spokesman called the make-up show a major priority, that they have been working on it around the clock since Friday.

There is still no official date set yet, but Eyewitness News will bring you all the latest details as they become available.
