The Newsboys

Tickets are available now for the Newsboys, who will play Braden Auditorium on October 4.

One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, the band will bring the “Newsboys United Tour” to Braden at 7 p.m. Thursday, October 4, at the Bone Student Center at Illinois State University. Tickets are at the Braden Box Office in the Bone Student Center, and are available through Ticketmaster.

Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.

Showcasing “all the hits… under one roof… for one tour,” the “Newsboys United Tour” is set to play a total of 100 shows in 2018. Comprised of current members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein, and Jody Davis, along with former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel, the mega-group spans the decades delivering hit after hit, from recent chart-toppers “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe” to such classics as “Shine” and “Entertaining Angels.”

Sponsored by ChildFund and produced by Premier Productions in partnership with the Newsboys, the fall leg of the “Newsboys United Tour” will once again feature special guest Word recording artist Zealand—founded and fronted by Phil Joel—as well as a special appearance by singer/songwriter Adam Agee.
