ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL

BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

International Justice Mission, The Rabbit Room Sponsor Tour Featuring Special Guest Scott Mulvahill, Artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive, Gabe Scott

Peterson’s Resurrection Letters Vol. I Hit Billboard Americana/Folk Chart’s Top 5

Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker and award-winning author Andrew Peterson announces his 19th Annual Behold The Lamb Of God tour sponsored by International Justice Mission and The Rabbit Room. Logging multiple sold-out events each year since its inception in 2000, the Christmas tour has become a yearly tradition for Peterson and his band, as well as families and churches across the nation who look forward to attending each holiday season, recounting the Christmas story through song.

This year’s production, featuring special guest Scott Mulvahill and artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive and Gabe Scott, launches in Houston, TX with back-to-back nights Nov. 28 and 29 before traversing nine states and wrapping up Dec. 15 in Danbury, CT. The Behold The Lamb Of God tour also stops for the 15th consecutive year at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium where it is expected to sell out both its Dec. 9 and 10 events. Tickets are available now through www.andrew-peterson.com (see full list of tour dates below).

“I just can’t believe we still get to do this,” says Peterson. “If you had told me back in 2000, I would have laughed. Playing these songs with such dear friends for so many years is a rare and profound blessing.”

Peterson launched his Behold The Lamb Of God tour nearly two decades ago to present a musical rendition of the Christmas story and to reinforce the true meaning of the season. In 2004, the success of the tour led Peterson to record the award-winning album, Behold The Lamb Of God: The True Tall Tale Of The Coming Of Christ. In 2009, Peterson released a 2-disc project marking the 10th anniversary of the tour that includes a remastered version of the 2004 CD and a live recording of 2008’s tour.

Leading up to his 2018 Behold The Lamb Of God tour, Peterson will be featured on The Bible Tour along with Matt Maher, Natalie Grant and more, and is working on a new The Wingfeather Saga film to be revealed soon.

Earlier this year, Peterson released Resurrection Letters: Prologue and Resurrection Letters, Vol. I from Centricity Music amidst 5-star acclaim. Prologue is a collection of five “waiting songs” meant to remind listeners of the gravity of the crucifixion while Vol. I begins with the heartbeat of the resurrected Christ, exploring the resurrection itself and its centrality to Christianity. Vol. 1 also became a Billboard Top 5 Americana/Folk Albums chart hit while being called a “masterpiece” (CCM Magazine), “one of his best” (The Gospel Coalition) and “simply remarkable” (Jesus Freak Hideout). The album also features the RELEVANT-lauded video “Is He Worthy?” that has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Peterson’s Facebook and YouTube pages alone.

“I’ve always found that it’s a love that never runs away when things get hard. His love stays because He never breaks a promise & He never will. Way before I was acceptable, He chased after me. He knows my failures & my secrets. He knows the emptiness & the struggles I face in life, and yet I get to stand on His perfect, real love that never ends,” said McKenna Johns. “I think the more we understand God’s love, it makes us unstoppable because we never have to depend on people or on our circumstances to fill us up. So, for all of the broken situations in life that don’t make sense, and for everything that’s fallen out of place, know that you haven’t fallen out of God’s love & that you never will. Nobody’s gonna’ love you like Jesus.”

But God did what only He can do and brought me through it with more hope and promise than I’ve ever had,” shares Johnson. “I know He can do the same for everyone so that you can experience what happens when God becomes real in your own life.”

Having penned well-known Bethel Music hits such as “One Thing Remains,” “We Will Not Be Shaken” and “No Longer Slaves,” When God Becomes Real offers glimpses of the formation of the songwriting and collaborators which have sense stemmed into Bethel Music. Johnson spearheaded the creation of Bethel Music in 2007 which has led to multiple no. 1 albums, including many with his wife Jenn Johnson.

PLATINUM RECORDING ARTIST AND TWO TIME GRAMMY NOMINEE LAUREN DAIGLE RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM, SINGLE AND TOUR

 

Two-time GRAMMY Award nominee Lauren Daigle is back.  After bursting onto the scene in 2015 with her platinum selling debut album How Can It Be, Lauren returns with a brand new album, Look Up Child, a new single “You Say”, and a 40-city tour presented by AEG.  The album is now available for preorder through Amazon (LINK), iTunes (LINK), and with every ticket purchase for Lauren’s headline tour. Exclusive presale packages are also available at www.LaurenDaigle.com

 

Look Up Child has been in the works for quite some time and I’m excited to finally share it with my fans,” says Lauren. “The studio has become my companion as I’ve poured all that I can into what is now a body of work that I deeply treasure.”

 

The first single from Look Up Child, “You Say,” demonstrates a growth in Lauren’s talent as a songwriter and vocalist.  The song is both emotional and uplifting, a reminder to look inward to find strength in difficult times.  “You Say” is now available across all streaming services and the official video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/sIaT8Jl2zpI

 

From catchy melodies, to reggae jive, sweeping orchestral ballads to back beat vibe, Look Up Child has transcribed the pulse of Lauren’s veins into musical form. She adds, “Every part of the music experience, of Look Up Child, the album and the tour shares a profound love, deep rooted joy, and hopefully a connection to the music for people to share.”

Lauren will embark on her first headlining theatre tour in support of Look Up Child on September 27th.  Presented by Food for the Hungry, the tour will kick off in Cincinnati and make stops in Memphis, Chicago, Dallas, Cleveland, and her hometown of New Orleans, before wrapping in Jackson, MS on October 28th.  Joining Lauren on the Look Up Child Tour will be supporting acts AHI, Scott Mulvihill, and Infinity’s Song (on select dates). Regular and VIP tickets are available for presale beginning Monday, July 16th and will go on general sale Friday, July 20th.  Every ticket purchase will come with a copy of Look Up Child.  A list of tour dates and tickets are available here: https://laurendaigle.com/tour/
