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.
