Christian Music's Top Tour Unveils 360º Center Stage
The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Christian music’s largest annual tour, is ready to kick off it's annual tour in Jacksonville, Florida on January 11, 2019 at the Veterans Memorial Arena. Revealing a history-making tour first, Winter Jam will be presented on a 360º “in the round” center stage, showcasing a diverse lineup helmed by supergroup Newsboys United. The 2019 lineup includes high-profile artists Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Rend Collective, LEDGER, Newsong, Hollyn and Adam Agee in addition to Pre-Jam Party artists Dan Bremnes, Ty Brasel and Manic Drive.
Winter Jam is scheduled to hit a total of 44 cities, making stops at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena; Kansas City’s Sprint Center; PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh; Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena; Bridgestone Arena in Nashville; and Norfolk, Virginia’s Scope Arena, among numerous other top venues, before concluding March 31 at Cleveland’s Wolstein Center.
"I’ve been extremely excited to tell people about this year’s lineup,” said NewSong founding member and Winter Jam creator Eddie Carswell. “Not only are we thrilled to tour with several artists who’ve never been part of Winter Jam before, but we can't wait to be back on the road with some of our closest friends. It's going to be fun!”
“We’re looking forward to having a 360º stage for the first time,” Carswell adds. “It’s something we’ve dreamed about and now it’s a reality for us and the fans. This setup will offer better views, more seating and surround sound. More than anything, I’m just ready to see how God is going to use all the artists, songs and speakers to draw people to Himself. He’s the reason we do this every year!”
The Winter Jam 2019 Tour Spectacular is produced by Premier Productions and sponsored in part by ChildFund, Liberty University, Samaritan Ministries, Xtreme Conferences, Camp Electric, Premier Vacations & Events, Texas TransEastern and Wayne E. Bailey Produce.
Created and hosted by one of Christian music’s most influential bands, NewSong, Winter Jam exploded from a single show in 1995 to become the genre's benchmark tour. Throughout two decades, Winter Jam has helped provide a powerful platform for the Gospel in major arenas nationwide, consistently showcasing Christian music's biggest artists.
In 2018, Winter Jam was crowned the top first quarter music tour in the world.
