On the heels of the history-making #1 album, United, Christian music supergroup Newsboys United will return to the road this fall for one of the genre's most anticipated tours, it was announced today. By popular demand, the "Greatness Of Our God" Tour will once again bring together former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel with Newsboys' Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis for an autumn outing bound for more than 30 cities around the country.
Taking the stage to perform such new United fan favorites as "Greatness Of Our God" and "Symphony," the mega-group will also deliver hit after hit spanning Newsboys' iconic three decade career, from recent chart-toppers "God's Not Dead" and "We Believe," to classics like "Shine" and "Entertaining Angels," among many others.
Kicking-off September 12 in Troy, Ohio, the tour will feature GRAMMY®-nominated Gotee recording artist Ryan Stevenson, along with acclaimed singer/songwriter Adam Agee and a special guest appearance by former dcTalk member and singer/songwriter Kevin Max. The "Greatness Of Our God" Fall Tour is slated to visit the Rialto Square Theatre in Chicago; Houston's Revention Music Center; Grand Canyon University in Phoenix; and Joplin Memorial Hall in Joplin, Missouri, among numerous other locales, before concluding November 23 in Selma, Texas.
Newsboys' latest release, the groundbreaking United, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart following its May 10 release. A 10-song collection of compelling praise & worship moments and powerful pop tracks, United was produced by Peter Furler and Geoff Duncan and showcases four songs co-penned by Furler. The album is highlighted by the hit debut single "Greatness Of Our God," a triumphant worship celebration showcasing Furler and Tait on lead vocals, and also includes "Love One Another," with guest vocals from Kevin Max; pulsing praise anthem "Only The Son (Yeshua)"; "Symphony," a call to complete surrender; and the worshipful "Set Me Ablaze," which was originally recorded by Bethel Music and written by Mia Fieldes, Bryan & Katie Torwalt and Jacob Sooter.
Newsboys United have played more than 150 shows together since reuniting in 2018. The six-member supergroup headlined the 43-city Winter Jam Tour Spectacular earlier this year and recently co-headlined "Surrounded & United: The Tour" with multi-Platinum®, multi-GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter Michael W. Smith. Newsboys United are also set to take the stage on next week's Jesus Freak Cruise, along with dcTalk and TobyMac, among others.
One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys have sold more than 10 million units, amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Since their formation in Australia three decades ago, Newsboys have released 24 recordings and their signature songs include "We Believe," "He Reigns," "Miracles," "Born Again" and the Platinum®-certified mega hit, "God's Not Dead."
