Live Nation is bringing gospel to the arena.
PraiseCleveland.com – Today, the company announced that they will be bringing four of the most successful gospel artists of all time – Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Donnie McClurkin and Israel Houghton, collectively known as “The King’s Men” – to the same stage for the very first time with a fall tour that will run from Phoenix, AZ September 16 to Brooklyn’s brand new Barclay’s Center October 14.
The quartet can collectively boast over 100 major awards – Grammy, Dove, Soul Train, BET, NAACP, Stellar, and American Music Awards – and have sold out concerts all over the world.
“The opportunity to partner with Live Nation is a GREAT honor and responsibility,” said Franklin in a statement. “The genre of gospel music having this kind of massive marketing support is monumental, and the talent on this tour makes it a must-see event! I’m very proud of this relationship and I expect it to be a new groundbreaking platform for inspirational entertainment.”
Tickets will be available through Live Nation at ticketmaster.com beginning Friday, May 11, while Citi card members have access to a presale beginning Tuesday, May 8.
“In the Gospel world, this is like Springsteen, McCartney, Prince and Elton hitting the road together,” said Kevin Morrow, Senior Vice President of Touring at Live Nation, in a statement. “It’s going to be a once in a lifetime event for music fans.”
