Acclaimed Christian artists Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey are announcing the 2018 "Celebrate Christmas Tour," which will see the duo ringing in the holiday season for the third year in a row as they co-bill the popular tour presented by Compassion International.
Following a successful run of Christmas dates in 2016 and 2017, where they performed for multiple sell-out crowds, Grant and Gokey will once again share the stage each night in a fully integrated set. Launching Nov. 29, the Celebrate Christmas Tour is scheduled to hit twelve cities across the U.S., including stops in Minnesota, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, South Carolina, and more, before concluding in Georgia on Dec. 15.
Early pre-sale of tickets is available today in some markets at CelebrateChrismasTour.com with public sale available in many markets on Friday, Aug. 31, at 10 a.m. local time.

Both Grammy Award nominated and Dove Award-winning artists, Grant and Gokey are a special vocal pairing, setting the stage for an unforgettable Christmas experience. Under the musical direction of Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Bernie Herms, the Celebrate Christmas Tour features Grant and Gokey in a collaborative setting, as they perform a combination of Christmas classics, along with original selections from Grant's critically-acclaimed, soulful-tinged Christmas project Believe, and Gokey's Dove Award-winning album Christmas Is Here. Selections will include songs like, "O Holy Night," "Joy To The World," " Mary, Did You Know?" and more.
"I'm so excited to be doing this tour with Danny for our third year," Grant says. "It's my favorite time of the year with one of the best singers in the world, singing Christmas songs and singing them together?! Yes, please!"
"This tour is starting to become a tradition for me and Natalie" Gokey adds. "It's hard to believe we are going into our third year already! We are both big fans of Christmas, so it makes it fun to collaborate and share the stage together!"
"Our goal each night is to create an atmosphere of joy, nostalgia and celebration for those who attend to usher in the holidays with family and friends," he continues. "Music is such a huge part of creating the spirit of the holidays, so we want to share in that in our own unique way."
