Country singer Eric Church has given up trying to mend his broken foot after reinjuring himself on tour last month (Nov09) - because he refuses to stop stomping around on stage.
Church vowed to continue his U.S. Young & Wilder Tour after fracturing his foot during his 4 September (09) show at New York's Syracuse State Fair - even after exacerbating the injury.
And he has vowed to hobble around onstage and ignore doctor's orders.
Laughing off his broken bone, Church says, "The first five or six shows I went out on crutches and even played on a stool. When you see our shows, they're high energy, and I know that the crowd has a certain expectation of what they want the show to be, and I was concerned that we may not be able to live up to that... So I'm just going to keep playing, and it will either fall off or heal at some point in time. That's my plan. Not a good plan, but it's my plan."
