NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Playing to capacity audiences during a history-making string of spring and summer shows, the unprecedented “Newsboys United Tour” has been extended through the end of the year. Encompassing 40 more U.S. cities this fall, an initial slate of dates was announced today, with additional shows forthcoming. Click here for the “Newsboys United Tour” schedule.
Showcasing “all the hits… under one roof… for one tour,” the “Newsboys United Tour” is set to play a total of 100 shows in 2018. The fall outing will kick-off September 17 in Buffalo, New York, hitting Washington, D.C.; Seattle; Nashville, Tennessee; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Trenton, New Jersey, among numerous other cities, before concluding in December. Comprised of current members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, along with former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel, the mega-group spans the decades delivering hit after hit, from recent chart-toppers “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe” to such classics as “Shine” and “Entertaining Angels.”
“We’ve been so encouraged and humbled at the response from Newsboys fans, not just in the cities we’ve visited but from people all over the world,” said Newsboys’ Jeff Frankenstein. “This is so much more than just a tour, it’s a celebration of different eras, individuals and the songs that have brought us together.”
Sponsored by ChildFund and produced by Premier Productions in partnership with the Newsboys, the fall leg of the “Newsboys United Tour” will once again feature special guest Word recording artist Zealand—founded and fronted by Phil Joel—as well as a special appearance by singer/songwriter Adam Agee.
