Newsboys United To Headline 2019 Winter Jam Tour With New “In The Round” Stage

Newsboys United will headline the upcoming Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Christian music’s largest annual tour, which will kick off Jan. 11 and visit 44 cities through March. 

Revealing a history-making tour first, Winter Jam will be presented on a 360º “in the round” center stage, showcasing a diverse lineup that will include Grammy-nominated former American Idol finalist Danny Gokey; Grammy-winning artist and “Overcomer” hitmaker Mandisa; Northern Ireland’s “Count Every Blessing” worshippers Rend Collective; Skillet drummer and female solo rocker LEDGER; Grammy-nominated tour creators and hosts NewSong; and Dove Award-nominated Gotee recording artist Hollyn.

In addition, the Pre-Jam Party is slated to feature hip-hop artist Ty Brasel; rockers Manic Drive; singer/songwriter Dan Bremnes; and special guest former Stellar Kart and Audio Adrenaline frontman Adam Agee. The tour will also include a Gospel presentation from Dare2Share speakers Greg Stier or Zane Black.

Winter Jam is scheduled to hit 44 cities, making stops at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, Kansas City’s Sprint Center, PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena, Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and Norfolk, Virginia’s Scope Arena, among numerous others, before concluding March 31 at Cleveland’s Wolstein Center.

“We’re looking forward to having a 360º stage for the first time,” NewSong founding member/Winter Jam creator Eddie Carswell said. “It’s something we’ve dreamed about and now it’s a reality for us and the fans. This setup will offer better views, more seating and surround sound. More than anything, I’m just ready to see how God is going to use all the artists, songs and speakers to draw people to Himself. He’s the reason we do this every year!” 

“With Peter and Phil back onstage with us, we can’t wait to bring the Newsboys United show to Winter Jam next year,” says Newsboys’ Michael Tait. “It’s a blast to join forces with such an incredible lineup of artists, and the ministry at the heart of Winter Jam is always evident.”

Earlier this year Winter Jam was crowned the top first quarter music tour in the world. Landing at No. 2 on Pollstar’s “2018 1Q YTD Worldwide Ticket Sales Top 100 Tours” chart, the Winter Jam 2018 Tour Spectacular took the top spot of all music tours, following No. 1 outing “Disney On Ice.” In 2018 Winter Jam hit a total of 46 cities across the country from January through March, boasting 17 sold-out shows.
