Fervent Records/Word Entertainment artist Big Daddy Weave will kick off 2017 with their Set Free tour. The 25-city tour, which will begin January 25th in Joplin, Missouri, will feature guest artists We Are Messengers and Zach Williams. The current singles from the three artists - Big Daddy Weave’s “The Lion and the Lamb,” We Are Messengers’ “Magnify” and Zach Williams “Chain Breaker” - are all topping the Christian music radio charts.
A Big Daddy Weave tour event goes beyond a concert experience. Their heart for people is shown in their transparency of freely sharing their own challenges, including the serious illness and subsequent amputation of both feet of Big Daddy Weave member Jay Weaver this past year.
“This past year has been a difficult one, especially with what Jay has gone through,” shares lead singer Mike Weaver. “We really believe that 2017 is going to be a time of restoration. In that restoration, we’re learning how to come out of bondage and walk more and more in the freedom bought for us in the Cross. We're expectantly excited to experience this freedom with everyone we're going to see each night.”
