“When we began discussing the Drive-In Theater series and which artists made the most sense, Casting Crowns was an immediate YES,” said Dan Fife, President and Founder of Awakening Events. “We’ve had a long history of successful shows with Casting Crowns. The powerful way in which their music impacts people is something that is needed in this season. I’m honored that the Casting Crowns’ team has decided to join us on this exciting new journey, taking live music to the people, on the Drive-In Theater Tour Series.”
Mark Hall, lead singer of Casting Crowns also spoke up about the opportunity. “We are excited for the opportunity to get out and play some shows in a safe environment. I think on a lot of levels families need this right now. We pray these nights will offer people hope.”
As has been previously reported, the Drive-In Theater Tour is fully complying with all local guidelines related to Covid-19 for the safety and well-being of all attendees.
“We’ve heard the demands from our fans, and we’re working hard to bring live music back to as many locations as possible,” said Curtis Pinkerton, director of Marketing at Awakening Events. “We’re excited today to be able to safely add 7 additional states to the Drive-In Theater Tour Series footprint."
