ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 30, 2018

ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL

BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

International Justice Mission, The Rabbit Room Sponsor Tour Featuring Special Guest Scott Mulvahill, Artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive, Gabe Scott

Peterson’s Resurrection Letters Vol. I Hit Billboard Americana/Folk Chart’s Top 5

 

Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker and award-winning author Andrew Peterson announces his 19th Annual Behold The Lamb Of God tour sponsored by International Justice Mission and The Rabbit Room. Logging multiple sold-out events each year since its inception in 2000, the Christmas tour has become a yearly tradition for Peterson and his band, as well as families and churches across the nation who look forward to attending each holiday season, recounting the Christmas story through song.

This year’s production, featuring special guest Scott Mulvahill and artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive and Gabe Scott, launches in Houston, TX with back-to-back nights Nov. 28 and 29 before traversing nine states and wrapping up Dec. 15 in Danbury, CT. The Behold The Lamb Of God tour also stops for the 15th consecutive year at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium where it is expected to sell out both its Dec. 9 and 10 events. Tickets are available now through www.andrew-peterson.com (see full list of tour dates below).

“I just can’t believe we still get to do this,” says Peterson. “If you had told me back in 2000, I would have laughed. Playing these songs with such dear friends for so many years is a rare and profound blessing.”

Peterson launched his Behold The Lamb Of God tour nearly two decades ago to present a musical rendition of the Christmas story and to reinforce the true meaning of the season. In 2004, the success of the tour led Peterson to record the award-winning album, Behold The Lamb Of God: The True Tall Tale Of The Coming Of Christ. In 2009, Peterson released a 2-disc project marking the 10th anniversary of the tour that includes a remastered version of the 2004 CD and a live recording of 2008’s tour.

Leading up to his 2018 Behold The Lamb Of God tour, Peterson will be featured on The Bible Tour along with Matt Maher, Natalie Grant and more, and is working on a new The Wingfeather Saga film to be revealed soon.

Earlier this year, Peterson released Resurrection Letters: Prologue and Resurrection Letters, Vol. I from Centricity Music amidst 5-star acclaim. Prologue is a collection of five “waiting songs” meant to remind listeners of the gravity of the crucifixion while Vol. I begins with the heartbeat of the resurrected Christ, exploring the resurrection itself and its centrality to Christianity. Vol. 1 also became a Billboard Top 5 Americana/Folk Albums chart hit while being called a “masterpiece” (CCM Magazine), “one of his best” (The Gospel Coalition) and “simply remarkable” (Jesus Freak Hideout). The album also features the RELEVANT-lauded video “Is He Worthy?” that has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Peterson’s Facebook and YouTube pages alone.

New Album Update, Podcast News, and Escape To The Lake 2018

New Album Update

I wanted to give you a quick update about the progress of the new album. Two months ago I started crowdfunding to raise money to pay for the recording costs for the new album.

Total costs to pay for the remaining unpaid studio time, mixing, and mastering of the album came to $10,200.

Last night the crowdfunding campaign ended. All total we’ve raised $5360, which means I’ll be paying $4840 out of pocket to pay for recording costs.

So where does that leave us?

I’ve decided to go ahead with making the album in spite of being short of funds. So many of you have given so generously and have shown such enthusiasm for this new music that I feel like there is no other choice.

It might take a little longer to make the album than I originally though since the money I was raising did not cover the costs of printing the CD. Distributing, marketing, or any other if the many expenses involved in making then album. This makes the financial burden much greater, but I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to get the album made.

Thank you to all of who who have helped by spreading the word about the new album. Thank you to all of you who have donated money so generously and sacrificially. Thank you for all to all of you who pre-ordered the album.

From here we will trust God to provide and I’ll keep working to bring it to you.

Podcast News

I’ve been working very hard to bring some great guests to my podcast, Voices In My Head.

In the past year I’ve welcomed amazing like William Willimon, Tim Madigan, Shane Claiborne, Stephen Tobolowsky, Science Mike McHargue, Andrew Peterson, and many more.

We’ve had conversations on music, Worship, Ethics, Sexual and Racial Equality, Islam, Judaism, and much more. The podcast listener community keeps growing and the feedback I’ve been getting has been very encouraging. I just wanted to take a moment to recommend that you give the show a listen and leave some feedback on iTunes. I think you will be glad that you did.
