GRAMMY® winner and multi-platinum recording artist Chris Tomlin just completed the most successful tour of his 13 year career, with his spring 2013 “Burning Lights Tour” not only seeing a 53% increase in average show attendance above his 2011-2012 tour, but also selling out 25 of its shows, including major U.S. markets like New York, Los Angeles, Houston and Chicago. Additionally, Houston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and Seattle each saw ticket sales in excess of 10,000.
Upon the completion of the tour, Tomlin has announced the continuation of “The Burning Lights Tour” this fall, which will hit 21 cities across the country beginning October 3rd, and once again feature friend and pastor of Passion City Church/Communicator/Passion founder, Louie Giglio. Dates will be announced soon, with presales beginning in June. All tour details will be available at www.ChrisTomlin.com/tour.
The final night of the spring run, also a sell out show at Denver’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheater, was filmed before an enthusiastic crowd for what will be Tomlin’s first Live DVD project. The two-disc Burning Lights Deluxe Tour Edition, due in October, will include the live DVD along with the Burning Lights CD. The packed-full project will feature a glimpse into Tomlin's full live tour experience and will feature the powerful moments of "Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)," "Revelation Song" performed with Kari Jobe and Louie Giglio's full 45 minute talk.
This January, Tomlin accumulated the biggest first-week sales numbers of his history-making career when his latest studio album, Burning Lights, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. With more than 72,000 units sold, Burning Lights marks Tomlin’s first trip to the top of the Billboard 200 and only the fourth time in history that a Christian music album has entered that chart at No. 1.
