MercyMe and Tenth Avenue North are hitting the road together again this fall on the "Imagine Nation Tour" which will make stops in over 20 cities across the country. The tour kicks off Oct. 4 in Indianapolis and wraps in Johnson City, Tenn., two months later on Nov. 11, with stops in major markets like New Orleans and San Antonio along the way.

The two award-winning bands are currently touring together on the MercyMe and Tenth Avenue North "LIVE" tour which saw several sold-out shows this winter, so chances are fans can expect the "Imagine Nation Tour" to be a reprise favorite.

In addition, fans can expect the bands to perform many of their greatest hit songs, including MercyMe's "I Can Only Imagine," "Greater," "Shake," and their recent No. 1 "Even If." Tenth Avenue North will share songs from their latest album Followers, including "I Have This Hope" and "Control (Somehow You Want Me)," as well as their previous hits "By Your Side," and "Worn," among others.

The tour announcement comes soon after the success of "I Can Only Imagine," a film based on the true story of MercyMe frontman Bart Millard's life and named after the multi-platinum selling hit song, which exceeded all expectations at the box office, becoming No. 3 two weekends in a row. The film is currently the No. 1 faith-based movie of 2018.

MercyMe has sold more than 9 million units in CD, single, and DVD sales and garnered more than 57 No. 1 multi-format radio singles, making history in 2014 as "I Can Only Imagine" surpassed 2 million digital downloads, becoming the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain.

Tickets for the "Imagine Nation Tour" are available now, with more information at MercyMe's official website.
