As country superstar Eric Church prepares to kickoff his Double Down Tour at the CHI Health Center in Omaha Friday night, MECA officials are urging fans to prepare and arrive early.
According to WOWT snow is expected to begin falling in the afternoon and continue into the evening, with snowfall heavy at times. That could impact the drive into downtown and make the parking process a little slower.
MECA spokesperson Kristyna Engdahl says Church and his road crew arrived earlier this week and the stage is set for the concert to take place. "We’re encouraging people to budget ample time to travel downtown and remind them to arrive early to get through security screenings, especially since people will be walking in wearing heavy, bulky coats."
Engdahl also reminds fans to bring their clear plastic bags to the arena. "Clear bags measuring 12 X 12 X 6 are the only bags permitted. If you walk in with an unapproved bag you don't want to be stuck trudging back to your car in the snow."
