Earlier this month the band announced their inaugural "Great Big Family Christmas Tour" kicking off this holiday season. Running throughout December, this inaugural event is one the band hopes will offer many Christmas memories for all attendees, and will be a tradition for years to come.
Promising each evening on the tour to be joyful and interactive, the holiday fun-filled event will also offer the opportunity to collect an offering to give back to a local community in need.
Concertgoers will hear holiday classics along with a few of the band's originals from their 2013 release Merry Christmas To You, such as their No. 1 smash "What A Glorious Night" and the top 5 hit "Hey Moon." Also throughout the evening, the band will be sure to perform several of their notable radio hits.

As Sidewalk Prophets prepare for the upcoming Christmas tour, they are currently on their 30-city "Something Different Tour in 3D Tour," which wraps in November. The band will then head into the studio to record their first album in three years, slated to release in spring of 2019.
2018 has been quite a year for Sidewalk Prophets. After a bus trailer fire earlier this year where the band lost all of their gear, they were able to get back on their feet thanks to their dedicated fanbase, which donated more than $100,000 so the band to obtain new equipment and continue touring. They are beyond grateful to their fans and for the unending support they've received these past few months, and are thrilled to be able to continue touring and bring their "Great Big Family Christmas Tour" to cities around the country.
