Following the abrupt blackout of GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys' social media accounts, the band--with a little help from some old friends--reemerged today for a major announcement. Next year Newsboys will welcome back to the stage former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the "Newsboys United Tour," showcasing "all the hits... under one roof... for one tour." 
 
Along with an electrifying headlining set led by frontman Michael Tait and longtime members Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, Newsboys United will see Furler and Joel join the group for many of the most popular hits of the band's three-decade career. The "Newsboys United Tour" will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.

Hitting more than 40 cities in the spring--including Los Angeles, Houston, Minneapolis, Dallas and Orlando, Florida--tickets for the "Newsboys United Tour" will be available tomorrow, December 14, via an exclusive Spotify presale campaign. Regular presales are slated to begin December 15, with general ticket sales on December 18. For a complete list of "Newsboys United Tour" cities and dates, visit newsboys.com.
 

 
"We're so excited for Peter and Phil to join us on the road next year," said Newsboys' Michael Tait. "Taking the stage with two men who indelibly shaped the history of this band will be an unforgettable experience for us all. We can't wait to share these special moments with our fans as well."   

"I'm stoked to reunite with the Newsboys," said Peter Furler. "It's going to be brilliant to jam with the lads once again."

"I'm really excited to share the stage with the guys again," added Phil Joel. "The timing and heart behind this tour feels so right and I'm pumped for Newsboys fans both past and present to join us!"  

Peter Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the group's former drummer and lead vocalist, embarked on a successful solo career in 2009. During his tenure, the band earned five Gold® recordings and released such classic hits as "Shine," "Breakfast" and "He Reigns." As Newsboys' bass player, Phil Joel was featured on multiple albums and sang lead on the group's hit single "Entertaining Angels." Since his departure, Joel has bowed seven recordings as well as 2015's acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship EP.
 
One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Comprised of Michael Tait (lead vocals), Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys' signature songs include "We Believe," "He Reigns," "Miracles" "Born Again" and their Platinum®-certified mega hit, "God's Not Dead." The latter inspired one of the most popular Christian film franchises of all time, PureFlix's God's Not Dead and God's Not Dead 2, both of which included appearances by the band.
