Third day Together with Steven Curtis Chapman come together for one intensely powerful night!
SCC3D Tour comes to American Bank Center Selena Auditorium on August 12
Corpus Christi, TX – After an exhilarating string of shows this spring, and due to popular demand a second leg of dates has been added to the SCC3D Tour due to popular demand! Starting 8/4 in South Bend, IN and making stops in 8 more cities along the way before wrapping up in Syracuse, NY on 8/19.
The landscape of live entertainment is ever evolving. The traditional structure of a few up and coming opening acts followed by a set from the headliner has been a great touring model for many years, but leaves some artists and fans wanting more. In fact, both STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN and THIRD DAY have wondered… "What can we do to give the Christian music fan more?” And the answer to this question is the beginning of what is going to be a new day in live Christian entertainment.
Awakening Events is proud to announce THIRD DAY together with STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN presented by Food for the Hungry. This multi city tour will begin in Little Rock this April and make stops in multiple cities along the way before wrapping up in Cincinnati.
This will be the most unique tour experience ever for the Christian music industry. With the talents and artistry of two Christian music icons woven together to create a truly
unforgettable evening. THIRD DAY & STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN sharing the stage together as one group, performing songs together from their two amazing catalogs of music that have garnered critical acclaim as well as built a following of millions worldwide.
"I can’t tell you all how excited I am to be a part of a “first time ever” tour experience with my buds from Third Day! Something we’ve been dreaming and talking about for years is finally happening…Third Day as my band and me as a member of Third Day…a true “come together” experience for both of us! It’s going to be a very special night for us and for the audience that gets to experience it with us.”
–Steven Curtis Chapman
“We have never done a tour together. We have done shows together in the past, but this will be the first time that we are actually on a full tour together. But the thing that I'm most exciting about for this tour is I don’t think anything like this has been done in the Christian marketplace where a solo artist and band got together and were onstage the whole time together playing each other’s songs… that is what is so intriguing and attractive about this whole thing is that it hasn’t been done before.”
“When we first started talking about us doing a tour together my first reaction was WOW this is going to be fun. We’re going to put up there on stage all of us having fun, and I think that’s going to translate directly to the fans and they are going to have a blast! “ –Mark Lee
