Local shows include Feb. 22 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto and March 3 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester.
Tickets for the “Tomlin UNITED” Tour will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, Oct. 22.
“We really believe this tour is going to be something unforgettable,” said Tomlin and Joel Houston of UNITED. “We’ve been trying to do something like this for a long time and we have a real sense of trust in the fact that this is the right time. This is the moment for what God has been planning and, in that, we think the timing has everything to do with the people joining us each night.”
A press release noted, “After an 18-month delay, the ‘Tomlin UNITED’ Tour aims to not only bring the church back together, but also bring faith back to the center of our conversations. Expected to be an experience unlike any other, the tour offers friends, family and strangers the opportunity to worship together again after what has been a long season of isolation.”
On their collective desire for the tour, Tomlin and Houston said, “At the heart of it, we want people to leave with the understanding that there is a greater hope in this world. This is a critical moment in time for people to be reminded that there is a true and living hope, and that’s Jesus. That is what we proclaim with these nights.”
Tomlin and UNITED are offering fans an exclusive presale opportunity that provides advanced access to premium seats, exclusive access to rewards, and a chance to win the official grand prize: a flyaway package for two to attend the Los Angeles concert with the ultimate backstage experience. Other winners will receive VIP tickets for an exclusive tour experience. For more information on presale access and a social media contest, visit www.TomlinUNITED.com.
Tomlin and Houston further added, “Our prayer is that these nights of worship would be like coming home moments for people, people who have found themselves far from God. That they would experience something that feels like an anchor, a real moment where the spirit of God can do what only the spirit of God can do in people’s lives.”

It is estimated 20-30 million people across the world sing one of Tomlin’s songs every week in church services in nearly every language. Time magazine heralded him as the “most often sung artist in the world,” as his music has inspired and uplifted an entire generation of believers. Along the way, he’s scored 17 No. 1 singles at radio, sold more than 9 million albums, earned a Grammy, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards and became a two-time BMI Songwriter of the Year honoree.
In 2016, Tomlin was named one of only four artists ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 billion digital radio streams, alongside Justin Timberlake, Pitbull and Garth Brooks. He is also the first Christian artist to reach the Billion streams threshold on Pandora and was presented with their BILLIONAIRE award. His tours have sold-out venues everywhere, including New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Red Rocks in Colorado.
UNITED is an award-winning, Platinum-selling artist whose chart successes (repeatedly No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian charts and up to No. 5 on Billboard 200) are only bested by the millions of lives they’ve impacted across the globe. Reporting over 50 million people singing from the Hillsong catalogue songs every Sunday, the modest band born from a youth ministry out of Hillsong Church in Australia touts a reach of over 10 million across all major social network platforms to date, including 2.1 billion minutes garnered from YouTube viewers.
Comprised of an evolving, eclectic mix of musicians and songwriters, the band is led by Houston and Taya, names that have become synonymous with Christian radio, dominating airwaves with every new release. Their last four studio albums have each topped the U.S. Christian chart, with “Zion” and “Empires” charting No. 1 (“Zion” recently also went Gold in the U.S.); “Oceans,” written by Houston and band member Matt Crocker recently went triple-Platinum in the U.S., counting 200-plus million streams and reigning on top of the Christian songs chart for a record 54 weeks.
In studio, on tour or at home, UNITED is committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound and connect people everywhere with God, evident by the success they’ve seen globally. With over 50 countries and six continents visited, UNITED continues to sell out arenas and stadiums around the world, including sold-out nights at the Forum, STAPLES Center and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, The Toyota Center, Oracle Arena, Air Canada Arena, American Airlines Arena (Miami and Dallas), and Red Rocks to scratch the surface.
A press release noted, “UNITED functions from the deep understanding that everything they do is an expression of a really extraordinary God doing what only he can do, through really ordinary people.”
