"Over the last year, I've come to realize that I have taken for granted the ability to gather together as the church in worship," shared Chris. "Ever since I was young, I have felt a calling on my life to help give people a voice to worship God and for me, I can't think of a more critical moment in time for us to come back together and worship... unified and as one voice. Worship is more than a concert, it's about your soul connecting to God, it's eternal and an opportunity to join in everlasting praise. To not only worship outside amidst God's creation but to do it alongside some of the most influential worship leaders in the church right now is something I am honored to be a part of. This is truly going to be a moment of impact and one we will never forget."
On the heels of the success of Chris' #1 debuting album Chris Tomlin & Friends, which currently has over 150 million global streams and had two songs featured in Spotify's Viral 50, Tomlin is set to release a follow-up EP. The album included Chris' second-longest-running #1 song "Who You Are To Me" featuring Lady A that topped the charts for six consecutive weeks and debuted at #6 on the Country Billboard Albums chart. The Chris Tomlin & Friends: Summer EP is set to release on July 2 and will feature superstar artist collaborations which will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
"As we are coming out of this unique moment in history, my prayer for everyone as they listen to these songs is that they feel encouraged, uplifted, and be reminded that 'the greatest of these is love,'" said Chris. "It is with great anticipation that we head into this summer with the announcement of the tour and the upcoming release of the EP, knowing that it's going to be filled with new memories and powerful encounters with the living God."
As one of the most successful Christian touring artists today, Chris will launch the amphitheater tour this August which is currently slated for 13 cities running through September 3. Chris's headline tours have sold-out venues everywhere, including New York City's Madison Square Garden, Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Red Rocks, and many more.
