Casting Crowns will do an additional 39 U.S. tour dates in support of their critically-acclaimed studio album, THRIVE.
The THRIVE Tour will feature GRAMMY® nominee Mandisa and Dove Award winners Sidewalk Prophets. The fall leg of the tour kicks off Sept. 18, in Las Cruces, N.M., and will continue throughout the fall visiting major markets including Los Angeles, Phoenix, Spokane, Oklahoma City, Nashville, San Antonio, Tulsa, Birmingham, Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh, among others.
In the past year, Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.
The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”
