NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 7, 2022) – As one of the most successful Christian touring artists today, Grammy® winner Chris Tomlin will return to headline back-to-back shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater on May 23 and May 24. This will be Tomlins fifth visit to the iconic venue, after becoming the first Christian artist to headline two consecutive nights; he repeated history in 2019. Chris will once again partner with The Awakening Foundation for the two night engagement.
Tickets are on sale Friday, March 11th at christomlin.com.
“To stand outside in the vastness of God's creation and worship together is an experience unlike anything else… and to be returning to Red Rocks for a fifth time is something I am so grateful and excited for,” shared Chris. “These back to back nights of worship are more than just concerts… These are opportunities to encounter the presence of the living God in the center of his creation and one of the most iconic venues in the world.”
This year Tomlin is partnering with The WayFM to give away the exclusive chance to lead worship and open for him at the concerts. Listeners are invited to enter the contest by uploading a submission video through a form at wayfm.com starting today through Sunday March 20th. The winning contestant will be chosen and announced by WayFM the week of March 21st.
The unprecedented return to Red Rocks will come just weeks after Chris’ annual Good Friday Nashville concert at Bridgestone Arena. After having to postpone two years in a row due to the global pandemic, Tomlin is thrilled to announce the return on Friday, April 15, 2022. Since its inception in 2017 Good Friday Nashville has sold out each year, smashing attendance records by becoming the largest ticketed Christian concert in the history of the venue and continuing to accomplish similar feats each year. Plans are currently in place for Chris to continue the Good Friday concerts indefinitely. Tickets available now at Good Friday Nashville.
