Nashville, TN - Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker and award-winning author Andrew Peterson announces his 19th Annual Behold The Lamb Of God tour sponsored by International Justice Mission and The Rabbit Room. Logging multiple sold-out events each year since its inception in 2000, the Christmas tour has become a yearly tradition for Peterson and his band, as well as families and churches across the nation who look forward to attending each holiday season, recounting the Christmas story through song.
This year’s production, featuring special guest Scott Mulvahill and artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive and Gabe Scott, launches in Houston, TX before traversing nine states and wrapping up Dec. 15 with it's only New England stop at Bethel, CT’s Walnut Hill Community Church. Tickets for the CT show are available now at www.CommunityCoffeehouse.org.
“I just can’t believe we still get to do this,” says Peterson. “If you had told me back in 2000, I would have laughed. Playing these songs with such dear friends for so many years is a rare and profound blessing.”
Peterson launched his Behold The Lamb Of God tour nearly two decades ago to present a musical rendition of the Christmas story and to reinforce the true meaning of the season. In 2004, the success of the tour led Peterson to record the award-winning album, Behold The Lamb Of God: The True Tall Tale Of The Coming Of Christ. In 2009, Peterson released a 2-disc project marking the 10th anniversary of the tour that includes a remastered version of the 2004 CD and a live recording of 2008’s tour.
Earlier this year, Peterson released Resurrection Letters: Prologue and Resurrection Letters, Vol. I from Centricity Music amidst 5-star acclaim. Prologue is a collection of five “waiting songs” meant to remind listeners of the gravity of the crucifixion while Vol. I begins with the heartbeat of the resurrected Christ, exploring the resurrection itself and its centrality to Christianity. Vol. 1 also became a Billboard Top 5 Americana/Folk Albums chart hit while being called a “masterpiece” (CCM Magazine), “one of his best” (The Gospel Coalition) and “simply remarkable” (Jesus Freak Hideout). The album also features the RELEVANT-lauded video “Is He Worthy?” that has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Andrew’s Facebook and YouTube pages alone and so moved Chris Tomlin that he covered it on his just released “Holy Roar” album.
