Newsboys United tour comes to The Bob April 20
The platinum-selling Newsboys will bring its Newsboys United tour to the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center on Friday, April 20.
Tickets, starting at $18, are now on sale at Ticketmaster.com and the Bob Carpenter Center box office.
Along with an electrifying headlining set led by frontman Michael Tait and longtime members Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, Newsboys United will welcome back former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for many of the most popular hits of the band's three-decade career. The Newsboys United tour will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.
“We’re so excited for Peter and Phil to join us on the road next year,” said Newsboys’ Tait. “Taking the stage with two men who indelibly shaped the history of this band will be an unforgettable experience for us all. We can’t wait to share these special moments with our fans as well.”
Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the group’s former drummer and lead singer, embarked on a successful solo career in 2009. During his tenure, the band earned five gold recordings and released such classic hits as “Shine," "Breakfast" and "He Reigns.” As Newsboys' bass player, Joel was featured on multiple albums and sang lead on the group's hit single "Entertaining Angels." Since his departure, Joel has released seven solo recordings, as well as 2015’s acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship – The EP.
One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, Newsboys has sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight gold certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four Grammy nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Comprised of Tait (lead vocals), Davis (guitar), Frankenstein (keys) and Phillips (drums), Newsboys has produced such signature songs as “We Believe,” “Miracles,” “Born Again” and the platinum-certified mega hit “God’s Not Dead.”
