Sidewalk Prophets Announces Inaugural "Great Big Family Christmas Tour," To Feature Live Orchestra, Holiday Classics
Contemporary Christian music band Sidewalk Prophets on Monday announced their 1st Annual "Great Big Family Christmas Tour" for the upcoming holiday season. The tour will run throughout December, and the band hopes that this inaugural event will offer many Christmas memories for all attendees and become a tradition for years to come.
Promising a series of joyful and interactive evenings on the tour, Sidewalk Prophets says the holiday fun-filled event will also offer the opportunity to collect an offering to give back to the local community in need.
"There is not a better time of year than Christmas and there is nothing more special than creating Christmas memories with the ones you love, and that is the driving force behind this tour," shares Dave Frey, lead vocalist for Sidewalk Prophets. "Our hope is that at the end of the night each person that came to the show leaves with a smile on their face and a heart that is full of holiday joy that will last a lifetime."
Concertgoers can expect to hear a number of holiday classics, along with a few Sidewalk Prophets originals from their 2013 release, Merry Christmas To You, including their No. 1 smash hit "What A Glorious Night," and the Top 5 hit "Hey Moon." Interspersed with the holiday tunes, the band also promises to perform several of their notable radio hits throughout the evening.
Another special highlight for the tour is that students from the horn and strings sections at Olivet Nazarene University's School of Music will perform on stage with the band. Appearing at every date on the tour, Dr. Don Reddick, Olivet Nazarene University's Chair of School of Music says in anticipation, "Olivet Nazarene University is excited to partner with the Sidewalk Prophets for their 2018 'Great Big Family Christmas Tour.' We consider this a musical partnership and an opportunity to help proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ."
