GRAMMY and Billboard Music Award winner Chris Tomlin saw his longtime vision come to life last week as more than 35,000 people came together for Worship Night In America events, selling out NYC's Madison Square Garden, Denver's Red Rocks Amphitheater and Sacramento's Sleep Train Arena.
The inaugural events brought people together for a time of worship and prayer for the nation and featured special guests Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, Matt Redman, Kari Jobe, Rend Collective, Israel Houghton, Matt Maher, Phil Wickham and Hillsong's Reuben Morgan. Fox News and Digital Journal covered the Madison Square Garden event, remarking that it was "jaw-dropping" and that it "captivated NYC."
This October, Tomlin will release a brand new Christmas album ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship. The album is the follow up to his RIAA Gold Certified 2012 Christmas project, Glory In The Highest and was recorded live at Ocean Way Recording Studios in Nashville. ADORE features special guests Crowder, Lauren Daigle and All Sons & Daughters. Tomlin will head out on a Christmas tour in support of the album, set to launch December 5 in Knoxville, TN (see tour routing below).
Christmas dates will follow the second leg of the “Love Ran Red Tour," featuring Ireland's Rend Collective, which has already been the biggest tour of Tomlin's career.
As fans continue to respond to Love Ran Red, singles continue to climb the charts. Tomlin recently tied the record for most top tens in the history of Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart as his current hit, "At the Cross (Love Ran Red)" broke into the top ten. Tomlin also garnered four 2015 GMA Dove Award nominations last week including Contemporary Christian Artist of Year, Worship Album of the year and Worship Song of the Year.
