Grammy Award-nominated and platinum-selling Christian rock pop band Newsboys will perform in El Paso. The popular group will bring its Love Riot Tour to the El Paso County Coliseum at 4100 E. Paisano, at 7 p.m. March 24.
Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, the Newsboys, who are from Australia, continue to sell out venues across the country. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keyboards) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the band has sold more than 8 million units, amassing eight Gold certifications, 33 No. 1 hits, four Grammy nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.
The Love Riot Tour begins Feb. 2 in Milwaukee and continues through early May, hitting more than 40 cities nationwide. The tour also will feature a never-seen-before, all-new theatrical experience, “God’s Not Dead LIVE! Rivals,” taking the audience on a journey to an infamous music venue where stars are born, rivals are met and no one leaves the way they came in.
“With this tour, we wanted to try something brand new, something different,” Tait said. “There’s something about drama, seeing scenes acted out, lived out, right in front of you, that has a different effect. We are very excited about sharing this new theatrical experience with our fans.”
Tickets, which will cost $25, $45 and $100, plus fees, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online.
A special pre-sale is set for Thursday, Dec. 8, using the promo code LOVE.
