Nashville, TN (December 10, 2018)
Christian music supergroup Newsboys United and multi-Platinum®, multi-GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter Michael W. Smith are set to make history this spring, joining forces for the first time ever for Surrounded & United: The Tour. The 10-city outing will be a night of worship, featuring hits spanning both artists’ unparalleled careers.

Kicking-off April 12 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Surrounded & United: The Tour is slated to stop in Hoffman Estates (Chicago), Illinois; Green Bay, Wisconsin; West Palm Beach, Florida; and Fargo, North Dakota, among other cities, before wrapping May 11 in Bismarck, North Dakota.

“We’re so excited to join our friend Michael W. Smith on the road next spring,” said Newsboys’ Michael Tait. “Over the years worship has become central to both our identities as artists, so having the chance to worship together will be such a special experience.”


“I’ve been friends with the guys in Newsboys for years, but for whatever reason, we’ve never had the opportunity to tour together,” Smith says. “The time finally seems right, and I’m really looking forward to this—great guys, great music, great worship. This is going to be fun!”

Newsboys United is comprised of Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, along with former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel. By the end of 2018, the supergroup will have performed 100 shows around the country since reuniting earlier this year. Beginning in January, Newsboys United will headline the multi-artist Winter Jam 2019 Tour Spectacular—Christian music’s largest annual tour and one of the biggest first quarter outings in the world.
