TobyMac, Mandisa and Capital Kings
To Hit the Road Spring 2015
Hit concert will be coming to American Bank Center March 6, 2015
(Corpus Christi, TX December 3, 2014) – GRAMMY® Award-winners TobyMac and Mandisa, along with electronic pop duo Capital Kings will hit the road this March.
Making stops in 11 U.S. cities (see full routing below), TobyMac will most certainly perform audience favorites from his most recent album EYE ON IT, which soared to the very top of the Billboard charts and earned a GRAMMY® Award. With a new release coming May 2015, audiences will likely hear a new track or two as well. TobyMac recently released EYE'M ALL MIXED UP featuring 11 tracks from EYE ON IT, including hits "Me Without You," "Speak Life" and "Steal My Show" mixed by remixers such as Capital Kings and Soul Glow Activatur of Family Force 5. TobyMac is spending this fall on the "Worship, Stories & Songs Tour" also featuring Matt Maher and Ryan Stevenson. The 20-city tour is a departure from TobyMac’s traditional high-energy live performance and is focusing on meaningful depictions of the stories behind the songs.
Mandisa will take the stage performing songs from all of her projects, most notably her best-selling and critically acclaimed album Overcomer which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart. In September, Mandisa released her first ever full remix album, Get Up: The Remixes, featuring remixes of her biggest hits including "Overcomer," "Stronger" and "Good Morning," all three of which Mandisa has performed on ABC's Good Morning America. Mandisa has been busy touring most of 2014, currently out with Casting Crowns and Sidewalk Prophets for 39 stops across the country on the “Thrive Tour.”
Having remixed songs for both TobyMac and Mandisa, Capital Kings will be a welcomed addition to the tour, bringing energy with their electronic pop sound. The band is busy finishing up their second album, which is already drawing attention as the first cut from the album, “Fire Blazin’” hit No. 1 on CHR. Capital Kings will join Crowder on tour this fall.

His most recent project, EYE ON IT, garnered him the GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and the highest chart debut of his solo career landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and topping the iTunes® Overall and Christian sales charts. The project made TobyMac one of only four artists to ever debut atop the Billboard 200 with a Christian music album. His previous four solo projects have received RIAA Gold Certifications and his live DVD, Alive & Transported, is RIAA Certified platinum and received a GRAMMY® award. In less than 15 months between 2012-2013, TobyMac received two GRAMMY® awards, two Billboard Music Awards for Top Christian Artist and Top Christian Album, his first American Music Award for Favorite Artist in the Contemporary/Inspirational category, Dove Awards for "Artist of the Year," "Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year," "Recorded Music Packaging of the Year," "Short Form Video of the Year," a K-LOVE Music Award for “Artist of the Year” and swept the 2013 Australian Music Award.
