The Newsboys are welcoming back former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the Newsboys United Tour, which will showcase “all the hits… under one roof… for one tour.”
Led by frontman Michael Tait and longtime members Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, Newsboys United will see Furler and Joel join the group for many of the most popular hits of the band’s three-decade career. The Newsboys United Tour will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.
The tour will hit more than 40 cities in the spring including Los Angeles, Houston, Minneapolis, Dallas and Orlando, and tickets will be available Dec. 14 via an exclusive Spotify pre-sale campaign. Regular pre-sales are slated to begin Dec. 15, with general ticket sales on Dec. 18.
“We’re so excited for Peter and Phil to join us on the road next year,” said member Michael Tait. “Taking the stage with two men who indelibly shaped the history of this band will be an unforgettable experience for us all. We can’t wait to share these special moments with our fans as well.”
Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the group’s former drummer and lead vocalist, embarked on a successful solo career in 2009. During his tenure, the band earned five Gold albums and released such classics as “Shine,” “Breakfast” and “He Reigns.” As Newsboys’ bass player, Phil Joel was featured on multiple albums and sang lead on the group’s hit single “Entertaining Angels.” Since his departure, Joel has bowed seven recordings as well as 2015’s acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship – The EP.
