Presented by Compassion International, 2018 Christmas Tour launches this November and will travel through 11 U.S. cities
Award-winning artists Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey will ring in the holiday season together for the third year in a row as they co-bill their popular Celebrate Christmas Tour, presented by Compassion International. Following a successful run of Christmas dates in 2016 and 2017 where they performed for multiple sell-out crowds, Grant and Gokey will once again share the stage each night in a fully integrated set. Launching Nov. 29, the Celebrate Christmas Tour is scheduled to hit 12 cities across the U.S., including stops in Minnesota, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and more, wrapping up on Dec. 15.
Early pre-sale tickets are available today in some markets at www.CelebrateChristmasTour.com. The Celebrate Christmas Tour public sale will begin in many markets on Friday, Aug. 31, at 10 a.m. local time.
Both Grammy nominated and Dove Award winning artists, Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey are a quintessential vocal pairing, setting the stage for an unforgettable Christmas experience. Under the musical direction of Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Bernie Herms (Josh Groban, Barbra Streisand, Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey) the Celebrate Christmas Tour features Grant and Gokey in a collaborative setting as they perform a combination of Christmas classics along with original selections from Grant’s critically-acclaimed, soulful-tinged Christmas project Believe, and Gokey’s Dove Award-winning album Christmas Is Here. Selections will include favorites like “O Holy Night,” “Joy To The World,” “Mary, Did You Know?” and more.
“I’m so excited to be doing this tour with Danny for our third year,” Grant says. “It's my favorite time of the year with one of the best singers in the world, singing Christmas songs and singing them together?! Yes, please!”
"This tour is starting to become a tradition for me and Natalie” Gokey adds. “It's hard to believe we are going into our third year already! We are both big fans of Christmas, so it makes it fun to collaborate and share the stage together! Our goal each night is to create an atmophere of joy, nostalgia and celebration for those who attend to usher in the holidays with family and friends. Music is such a huge part of creating the spirit of the holidays, so we want to share in that in our own unique way."
