NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Following the abrupt blackout of GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys’ social media accounts, the band—with a little help from some old friends—reemerged today for a major announcement. Next year Newsboys will welcome back to the stage former band mates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the Newsboys United Tour (buy tickets), showcasing “all the hits… under one roof… for one tour.”
Along with an electrifying headlining set led by front man Michael Tait and longtime members Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, Newsboys United will see Furler and Joel join the group for many of the most popular hits of the band’s three-decade career. The Newsboys United Tour will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.
Hitting more than 40 cities in the spring—including Los Angeles, Houston, Minneapolis, Dallas and Orlando, Florida—tickets for the Newsboys United Tour will be available tomorrow, December 14, 2017 via an exclusive Spotify pre-sale campaign.
