Having played to capacity audiences across the nation this Fall, Christian music supergroup Newsboys United announced today it will extend its monumental “Greatness Of Our God” Tour into the spring of 2020. The tour will make a stop at Stambaugh Auditorium on March 12, 2020, with special guests Mandisa and Adam Agee.

On the heels of the group’s history-making #1 album, United, the band plans to hit the road again next spring with a slate of nearly 35 new shows. Back by popular demand, the spring leg of the “Greatness Of Our God” Tour will once again bring together former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel with Newsboys’ Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein, and Jody Davis. The iconic band will be taking the stage to perform several of the new songs from their recently released United album, as well as a set of songs spanning their three-decade career, from recent chart-toppers “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe,” to classics like “Shine” and “Entertaining Angels,” among many others.

One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys have sold more than 10 million units, amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.

Three Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends will perform on the same stage! The Drifters, Cornell Gunter’s Coasters, and The Platters in concert together for one night only!

The Drifters, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, recorded a number of “firsts” in their storied career. They were the first musical group to sell over two million records with their pop classic “Up on the Roof”. They were the first African American vocal group to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their classic tune “Under the Boardwalk” is the most played R&B record of all time. They are also known for their hits “Save the Last Dance for Me’ and “This Magic Moment”.

Rock and Roll of Hall of Fame inductees The Cornell Gunter’s Coasters were one of the few artists in rock history to successfully straddle the line between music and comedy. Known for hits such as “Yakety Yak”, ­­”Young Blood” and “Charlie Brown”, their material was witty, their arrangements well-crafted, and the group itself musically proficient. That engaging and infectious combination made them one of the most popular early R&B/rock & roll acts, as well as one of the most consistently entertaining doo wop/vocal groups of all time.

The Platters’ hit single “Only You” launched the group as superstars on the world stage. Soon after, “The Great Pretender” propelled the group to the #1 spot on the charts. Their total record sales exceeded $200 million, making them one of the top 25 selling artists of all time. The Platters churned out hit after hit, bridging the gap between more traditional vocal-group stylings and popular R&B grooves. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and were the first Rock and Roll group to have a top ten album in America.

The three Hall of Fame groups combine for more than 94 charted records and 34 top hits. Many of these hits will be featured at the December 13th show along with a few holiday favorites. Reserved tickets range from $20-$50. For tickets, call 330-259-0555, go to stambaughauditorium.com, or visit the Florence and Ward Beecher Box Office at Stambaugh Auditorium in person. The box office is open Monday through Friday, 9am-6pm.
