The tour stops at The Chapel at CrossPoint in Getzville at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27.
Showcasing "all the hits ... under one roof ... for one tour," the "Newsboys United Tour" is set to play a total of 100 shows in 2018. The fall outing will kick-off in the Buffalo suburb before hitting Washington, D.C., Seattle; Nashville, Albuquerque and Trenton, New Jersey, among numerous other cities, before concluding in December.
Comprised of current members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, along with former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel, the mega-group spans the decades, delivering hit after hit from recent chart-toppers "God's Not Dead" and "We Believe," to such classics as "Shine" and "Entertaining Angels."
"We've been so encouraged and humbled at the response from Newsboys fans, not just in the cities we've visited but from people all over the world," Frankenstein said. "This is so much more than just a tour, it's a celebration of different eras, individuals and the songs that have brought us together."
Sponsored by ChildFund and produced by Premier Productions in partnership with the Newsboys, the fall leg of the "Newsboys United Tour" will once again feature special guest Word recording artist Zealand - founded and fronted by Joel - as well as a special appearance by singer/songwriter Adam Agee.
One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight RIAA Gold certifications, 33 No. 1 radio hits, four Grammy nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.
