Christian music mainstay Chris Tomlin smashed his own attendance record at his sold-out Good Friday Concert on Friday (April 19), which made the show the largest ticketed Christian concert in the history of Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Tomlin has committed to hosting the Good Friday Nashville concerts at least through 2024; and he has already set the date for 2020’s show, which will be Friday, April 10, 2020.
The 2017 Good Friday Nashville event was the previous record setting year, as it became the largest ticketed Christian concert in the venue’s history at the time. Good Friday Nashville was produced by Awakening Events and was presented by K-LOVE, Air1, The Fish and WAY-FM.
Tomlin was on stage from beginning to end of the two and a half hour show. The night also included best-selling author Max Lucado, special guests Tauren Wells and Pat Barrett. The Grammy-winning Lauren Daigle made a surprise appearance to perform her song “You Say” and joined Tomlin, Wells and Barrett for “Good, Good Father.”
To have a lasting impact on Nashville and the state of Tennessee, each year’s concert will give back to the community. The Good Friday Nashville concert proceeds will benefit Tennessee Kids Belong, a statewide nonprofit who help children and families in the foster care system. “Foster family recruitment goals have been far surpassed the last two years,” said Kristin Allender, Executive Director of Tennessee Kids Belong. “Last year the state certified 1,122 new foster families! They have a goal of 960 new families this year, with a special emphasis on the need for teenage placements. It has been beautiful to watch entire communities come around these families and children.”
Tickets for the 2020 Good Friday Nashville concert are available now.
