First Ever “The Roadshow Christmas Tour” and Fan-Favorite “The Roadshow Tour” Announce 29 Stops Nationwide
Continuing to take both music and message to thousands, Compassion LIVE’s “The Roadshow Christmas Tour” and “The Roadshow Tour” 2019 have unveiled their list of 29 coast to coast visits. Matthew West, Matt Maher, Building 429, Plumb, Josh Wilson and Leanna Crawford are on the docket for the first-ever “The Roadshow Christmas Tour” visiting arenas in November and December with more cities to be announced. Welcoming thousands of fans to arenas for a decade, “The Roadshow Tour” will feature Matthew West, Tenth Avenue North, Matt Maher, worship with very special guest Michael W. Smith and Leanna Crawford throughout February and March. The two treks will give fans even more opportunities to experience the award-winning line-ups.
“I’m so honored to be invited back by my friends at Compassion International to now headline ‘The Roadshow Tour’ for the first time,” explains 4X GRAMMY® nominee Matthew West. “I firmly believe that every concert can be not just a concert, but a life changing experience. I’ve seen God at work night after night in the lives of people who attend. And because of the work of Compassion International, the impact goes far beyond those in attendance at the shows. Many children’s lives are being radically changed, rescued from poverty through the blessing of sponsorship.” 2019 marks 3X GRAMMY® winner Michael W. Smith’s first appearance on the talented line-up. “I’m really looking forward to being a part of ‘The Roadshow Tour,’” adds Smith. “I’m going to start off the night in a really unique way – on the floor of the arena surrounded by the crowd. I’m grateful for my long and productive relationship with Compassion International and I appreciate them providing the opportunity for me to kick off these concerts setting the tone for the night from the very beginning.”
“Christmas is our absolute favorite time of year and we couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate the birth of our Savior than on tour with so many of our dear friends worshipping our Savior,” shares Building 429. Plumb will be joining the holiday tour and promises new elements to her live performance. “I’m really excited to announce that I will be a part of ‘The Roadshow Christmas’ for Christmas 2018,” says Plumb. “I’m also equally nervous and excited because I will be trying something very new in my show that I’ve never done before.”
