Fans of contemporary Christian music can look forward to seeing Chris Tomlin in Fresno in 2017.
Now, they can add Steven Curtis Chapman, Francesca Battistelli, Rend Collective, Passion, Family Force 5, Jordan Feliz, Derek Minor and Urban Rescue. The artists will be at the Save Mart Center Sunday March 12 on the Rock and Worship Roadshow. Tickets for the show are $10 at the door, though VIP tickets are available in advance at www.theroadshowtour.com. VIP tickets are offered in two levels; $50 will get fans early entrance, premium seating and pre-show artist appearances, plus an exclusive VIP t-shirt, souvenir bag and tour laminate. A $95 VIP ticket includes the same, but with reserved section seating closest to the stage, an exclusive tour poster and more.
In nine years, the Rock and Worship Roadshow has become, along with the similarly themed Winter Jam tour, a showcase for brightest up-and-coming Christian musicians. Past headliners have included Mercy Me and the Newsboys.
Chapman, who headlines this year’s festival, is one of the most awarded artists in the genre with 58 Dove Awards and five Grammy Awards. The singer was in Fresno earlier this year on the Songs and Stories tour with Brandon Heath and Mac Powell.
