Following a successful spring and summer tour with a string of history-making shows, Christian rock band Newsboys on Friday announced 40 new dates for this fall for the ongoing "Newsboys United Tour." The additional dates will once again feature former band members Peter Furler and Phil Joel, along with special guest Zealand and a special appearance by Adam Agee.
Touring under the banner of, "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 new fall dates begin on Sept. 17, in Buffalo, N.Y., and is scheduled to visit Washington, D.C.; Seattle; Nashville, Tenn.; Albuquerque, N.M.; and Trenton, N.J., among many other places before wrapping 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 group plans to deliver hits from across their album catalog spanning several decades, from their recent chart-toppers "God's Not Dead," and "We Believe," to "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," keyboardist and bassist Frankenstein says. "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 added dates will as previously mentioned feature special guest Zealand, founded and fronted by former Newsboys member Phil Joel, as well as a special appearance by singer-songwriter Adam Agee. Pollstar magazine ranks Premier Productions as the largest producer of live Christian events both nationally and all over the world.
