NEEDTOBREATHE premiered Tour de Compadres in summer 2015, visiting over 40 US markets accompanied by special guests Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and Colony House. The aptly named tour was a massive popular and commercial success, with highlights including a sold out date at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, captured exclusively by TIDAL in the just-released mini-documentary, NEEDTOBREATHE Live At The Red Rocks.
