Curb | Word duo for King & Country recently announced an upcoming holiday project, A Drummer Boy Christmas, slated for Oct. 30, and the four-time Grammy winners will complement the new album with their forthcoming drive-in tour, set to launch Nov. 12 in Norco, California. A Nashville stop at the Grand Ole Opry house is set for Nov. 29.
A Drummer Boy Drive-In: The Christmas Tour will include stops at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles and Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The duo will partner with The Salvation Army for a national toy drive, allowing concert attendees to bring new, unwrapped toys to be collected by local Salvation Army representatives and distributed to families.
“It’s been a difficult year for so many,” said Joel Smallbone of for King & Country. “Now more than ever, we felt compelled to get out on the road in a safe and socially distanced way to spread the joy and spirit of Christmas in the best way we know — by sharing a night of music celebrating the greatest hope the world has ever known. But we didn’t want the night to end after the last car leaves the parking lot, so we chose to partner with The Salvation Army and their Rescue Christmas Campaign to bring toys to families unable to afford them.
“This is a cause that’s dear to us,” he added. “We came to this country from Australia and were headed for bean burritos and gifts from the dollar shop before an act of kindness from a first-grade school class gave us a Christmas that we will never forget. They provided our family with food and toys to celebrate the holidays and for that reason we are so proud and honored to be partnering with the Salvation Army, to share a bit of joy with others that might be facing the same fate this Christmas.”
“We are so grateful to have the support of for King & Country and their fans,” said Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder, National Commander of The Salvation Army. “The toys collected at their upcoming concerts will help make the holidays brighter for families and raise awareness of the unprecedented need that many are facing this holiday season.”
The tour presale begins Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. local time (code word DRUMMER), while general public tickets will go on sale Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. local time.
