Announced today on K-LOVE/AIR1, TobyMac shared the diverse line-up for his 2017 “HITS DEEP Tour” including Matt Maher, Mandisa, Mac Powell from Third Day, Capital Kings, Ryan Stevenson and Hollyn who will join him on a trek of over 30 arenas across the U.S., presented by K-Love/Air1, Food for the Hungry and Awakening Events.
The tour makes a stop in Beaumont at Ford Park Event Center on February 11, 2017. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 23.
The first venture of this unique partnership with TobyMac, K-LOVE/Air1 and Awakening Events was this past Spring when his 2016 “HITS DEEP TOUR” resulted in sold-out shows in 26 out of 29 markets nationwide, including stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum, Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena, Phoenix's Talking Stick Resort Arena, San Diego's Viejas Arena, Portland's Moda Center, Seattle’s KeyArena, Denver's Coliseum and Kansas City's Sprint Center, which garnered 12,229 ticketed attendees alone. According to Pollstar, the 2016 “HITS DEEP Tour” was the biggest tour in Christian music and ranked in the top 35 tours in the world.
Through a partnership with Food for the Hungry, concertgoers sponsored over 15,000 children, providing food, a better education, clean water and medical treatment.
“It's an amazing partnership that we have with K-LOVE/Air1, Awakening Events and Food for the Hungry; it takes us where I think our music should be—in the heart of our cities in the biggest arenas in town," explains TobyMac. "I always get excited when it’s time to create the ‘HITS DEEP Tour' line-up. I love the idea of putting together artists that are just starting their journey with veterans, electronic artists with organic artistry and colors of skin that demonstrate God’s diverse kingdom. We come together backstage - which leads us to a beautiful night on stage. A night deep in hits, that aims to hit you deep. A night where everybody is invited to the party!”
