Newsboys in Concert April 29

The Grammy®-nominated and platinum-selling band Newsboys will be in concert Saturday, April 29, at 6 p.m. in Timmons Arena on the Furman University campus. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Timmons Arena box office. Ticket prices range from $19-$46. Limited VIP experience package tickets are $101 and include early entry at 4 p.m., best seats, photo opportunity with artist, and pre-show artist Q&A.

A Premier Productions event, the Love Riot Tour performance at Timmons Arena is one of more than 50 stops the band will make through May 2017.

The tour features an all new theatrical experience, God’s Not Dead LIVE! Rivals. Written and produced by John and Sarah Bolin (“The Thorn”) and featuring original songs from Juan Otero (“Born Again”, “Kings & Queens”), Rivals brings an ensemble cast of singers, actors and dancers together to answer the question “Can God really make a difference?” and takes the audience on a journey to an infamous music venue where stars are born, rivals are met and no one leaves the way they came in.

“With this tour, we wanted to try something brand new, something different,” said Michael Tait, lead singer for Newsboys. “There’s something about drama, seeing scenes acted out, lived out, right in front of you, that has a different effect.  We are very excited about sharing this new theatrical experience with our fans.”

Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, Newsboys’ live performances continue to sell out venues across the country. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the band has sold more than eight million units, amassing eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. “God’s Not Dead,” Newsboys’ chart-topping, Platinum®-certified single, inspired the same-titled Pure Flix 2014 hit film. The band also appeared in “God’s Not Dead” and returned to the big screen to reprise their role in this spring’s box office hit sequel, “God’s Not Dead 2.”

Newsboys’ latest Fair Trade Services release, Love Riot, debuted atop multiple charts, including Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and Top Alternative Albums chart, earlier this year.
