The Grammy®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys welcome back to the stage former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the Newsboys United Tour, showcasing all the hits under one roof for one tour.
Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the groups former drummer and lead vocalist, 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 bowed seven recordings as well as 2015s acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship The EP. One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, Newsboys have amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 number one radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Comprised of Michael Tait (lead vocals), Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys signature songs include We Believe, He Reigns, Miracles Born Again and their Platinum®-certified mega hit, Gods Not Dead. The latter inspired one of the most popular Christian film franchises of all time, PureFlixs Gods Not Dead and Gods Not Dead 2, both of which included appearances by the band.
The Newsboys United Tour will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.
