|Casting Crown's "Lifesong Tour" Seems Tremendous Response with Half of Shows Sold Out
20 March 2006
After only a month into the spring leg of Casting Crowns’ headlining “Lifesong Tour,” the show is reaching landmark success. To date, already half of the 18 played markets have sold out completely in cities including Nashville, Austin and Charlotte. This enormously popular concert features award-winning female artist Nichole Nordeman, plus singer/songwriter newcomer Josh Bates and speaker Tony Nolan. Performing to more than 93,000 fans so far, the “Lifesong Tour” is shaping up to be one of the most successful bills this year.
Promoter Richard Young sold more than 16,000 tickets combined for his shows in Charlotte and Raleigh. He notes, “As a promoter you always look forward to a tour and an artist that has tremendous buzz and excitement in the public arena. Casting Crowns and the “Lifesong Tour” delivered just that. It truly was the concert tour that no one wanted to miss. It just does not get more exciting than that.”
The tour continues through May 8th with plans to reach a total of 46 markets in support of the band’s GRAMMY Award winning, RIAA Gold Lifesong album. This spring run follows Casting Crowns’ highly successful fall 2005 ‘Lifesong’ leg which pulled in more than 150,000 people over 38 dates.
GRAMMY Award winning Casting Crowns has sold 2 million units in its short two-year career. The band’s sophomore release Lifesong has already produced its fourth consecutive career radio No.1 with title track “Lifesong” following mega hits “If We Are the Body,” “Who Am I,” and “Voice of Truth,” all from the band's platinum-selling, self-titled debut record. The new single “Praise You In This Storm,” is now charting on multiple formats at Christian radio.
