“Mercy Me and Tenth Avenue North Live” To Bring
Award-Winning Lineup To 20+ Markets in Early 2018
Coming to Corpus Christi in February 2018 right before MercyMe’s much anticipated movie, “I can only Imagine”
Corpus Christi, TX (Nov. 7, 2017) – Topping a celebrated year for multi-platinum selling MercyMe, the chart-toppers announced that they will be uniting with fellow GMA Dove Award Winners Tenth Avenue North for the aptly titled “Mercy Me and Tenth Avenue North Live” Tour at the start of next year. Over 20 markets along the East and Midwest are among the routing which will run February through April.
Tickets for “MercyMe and Tenth Avenue North Live” will go on sale Friday, November 10. Visit www.MercyMe.org and americanbankcenter.com for the latest information.
MercyMe are closing 2017 on a high note with the wrapping of their successful headlining “Lifer Tour,” three GMA Dove Award wins including the Artist of the Year title and their sixth American Music Award (AMA) nomination. Much of the fanfare stems from their most recent No. 1 album LIFER which debuted earlier this year, and includes “Even If” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19-week streak at No. 1 and the movement infused “Happy Dance.”
The much-anticipated new movie, “I Can Only Imagine,” a true story based on the life Bart Millard who wrote the mega-hit song “I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father to cancer, opens in theaters March 16, 2018. “MercyMe and Tenth Avenue North Live”
