‘I just need U.’ nets Gold certification
Grammy winner TobyMac's “I just need U.” just scored RIAA Gold certification aligning with the wrap of his popular “HITS DEEP Tour,” which drew hundreds of thousands.
This fall will mark the return of the “TobyMac The Theatre Tour.” Known for selling out arenas, last year marked the inaugural year for the trek, which offers fans an unprecedented, intimate music experience. The unique offering will visit a dozen markets in November with special guest Cochren & Co.
"TobyMac The Theatre Tour" is in partnership with Awakening Events, Awakening Foundation and Food for the Hungry. Tickets will be available at http://awakeningevents.com/events/tobymac-the-theatre-tour.
“I just need U.” is housed on TobyMac’s latest chart-topping album, “The Elements.” The track marked the multi-Platinum selling artist's fastest song to be certified Gold, and reigned at radio for 12 weeks.
"I have been fortunate to have been a part of a lot of great songs,” TobyMac said. "For 'I just need U.' to be setting new benchmarks is crazy!"
"We knew that 'I just need U.' was a special song when Toby brought it in, and had high hopes that it would become another milestone moment in a career that has already had so many," said Brad O’Donnell, co-president, Capitol Christian Music Group. "It has exceeded even those expectations, though – we couldn’t be more excited to have yet another Gold record with Toby!"
In all, 250,000 tickets were sold to TobyMac’s “HITS DEEP Tour.” Among the 37 shows were a slew of notable arenas including Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, Atlanta’s Infinite Energy Arena, Hoffman Estates’ Sears Centre Arena, Newark’s Prudential Center and two sold-out nights at D.C.’s EagleBank Arena and Dallas' The Theatre at Grand Prairie. Jeremy Camp, Jordan Feliz, Ryan Stevenson, We Are Messengers and Aaron Cole joined the artist’s headlining jaunt, which was a partnership with K-LOVE, Air1, Awakening Events and Food for the Hungry.
