Two weeks from today on April 1st, Hawk Nelson fans will be clamoring to the nearest store if they haven't already pre-ordered the forthcoming studio release, Hawk Nelson Is My Friend
. Since February 27th, fans on the West Coast have been able to get a small sample of the upcoming album on the popular "Hawk Nelson Green T Tour," which sold out to three West Coast venues in Tracy, CA, Redmond, WA and Spokane, WA.
In addition to three sold-out dates, the tour has had more than 31,000 in attendance and over 6,700 Green T bundle purchases. The Green T bundle is for the avid Hawk Nelson fan that wants an up-and-close experience at the concert. The Green T bundle, which can be purchased online through Music Today, includes a concert ticket, pre-order of the new CD, and special edition green t-shirt. To purchase this bundle that is specially priced at $30, fans just need to go to HawkNelson.com
and buy tickets to the Green T Tour in their respective city. With each ticket purchased, the fan will get an official Hawk Nelson Green T, which will be a special edition numbered shirt. So far the fans love the Green T concept (quotes below).
Promoting the Hawk Nelson West Coast explosion was Lowell MacGregor of LMG concerts - promoter for the Pacific Northwest Region. After the recent Hawk Nelson run, MacGregor shared, "Hawk Nelson has consistently put on great performances and the momentum they have built as a result feels like the real thing. I look forward to being a part of the future with this talented band."
The media markets for the tour have also picked up on the wave with daily newspaper features in such cities as: Abilene, TX
, Highland, CA
, and a cover story of the entertainment section in Eugene, OR
The Green T Tour also features special guests Run Kid Run
, who have an upcoming album (Love At The Core) releasing April 29th, and the newly signed Tooth&Nail Records' Capital Lights
