Danny Gokey Announces First Headlining Tour For Fall

Danny Gokey is gearing up for his first-ever headlining tour this Fall with the Hope Encounter tour. The tour will hit 29 markets across the country, including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, and more beginning in September, and will also feature Tauren Wells and breakout artist Riley Clemmons.

“It’s been a dream of mine since American Idol to headline my own major tour,” says Gokey, who placed third in the eighth season of the talent competition. “That platform opened my eyes to the power of mixing hope with entertainment. Hearing a message of hope at just the right time can truly make an impact in someone’s life. The process of creating the tour has really been awesome. I can’t wait to hit the stage with Tauren and Riley – they are both crazy good and I love their fresh sound.  We’ve also brought in uber-creative director Laurieann Gibson, who has worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Katy Perry, to design the show and help me take it to another level.”

Hope Encounter tickets pre-sale takes place Tuesday, May 29. Venue pre-sales launch in each market on May 30, and national tickets go on sale Friday, June 1.
