New Release Tuesday posted a review of what a Hawk Nelson show is like. Read below to check it out and then see our upcoming shows!
I’ve seen Hawk Nelson multiple times over the past few years, but this was probably the most fun set I have ever seen them play. They played the show like they were there to hang out with their fans, even pulling a huge group onto the stage to dance with them at one point. They did break up their set with a mellow moment when they played their earnest song “Everything You Ever Wanted” followed by “Take Me.” This more serious note carried to the conclusion of their set with the upbeat, encouraging “Crazy Love.”
Perhaps the most fun moment of the evening came at the end, when Hawk Nelson reclaimed the stage for the traditional encore. Instead of coming out to play one last Hawk Nelson song, the guys took the stage wearing massive 80s mullet wigs and aviator sunglasses. They launched into an enthusiastic cover of Journey’s iconic power ballad “Don’t Stop Believing.” Few bands could pull it off with as much style as Hawk Nelson, but they have the decided edge of knowing when not to take themselves too seriously. It was brilliantly done.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
HAWK NELSON TO HEADLINE FIRST ANNUAL MUSIC WITH A MISSION TOUR PRESENTED BY COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL IN SEPTEMBER!
Veteran artist managers Scott Andrews and Yogi Allgood, along with Mark Claassen (owner of Elite Talent Agency), in partnership with Compassion International and NewReleaseTuesday.com, are proud to announce the launch of the annual MUSIC WITH A MISSION TOUR. Scheduled to hit cities across the US in September and October, the tour will feature Grammy-nominated group Hawk Nelson, Superchic[k], and Fireflight, along with MIKESCHAIR, Manafest, Hyland, Kiros, Samestate, and, on select dates, Chasen.
The MUSIC WITH A MISSION TOUR will be an experience unlike any other. Focusing on the strength of Christian communities, the tour aims to give bigger purpose to music by providing a platform for organizations to help give to those less fortunate than themselves.
With the help and support of prominent Christian recording artists and organizations, the MUSIC WITH A MISSION TOUR will offer at majority of the shows admission for only $15 at the door. A select number of VIP Ticket Experiences will be sold for each date, which will give fans access to behind the scenes action, early entry, and exclusive merchandise, among other bonuses.
The MUSIC WITH A MISSION TOUR has partnered with several organizations, including Compassion International, Jedidiah Clothing and serving in support of TOM shoes. Attendstar Ticketing will unite both fans and artists to prove that music is more than just a melody; it can have a genuine purpose.
“When we came up with the idea of this tour, we knew weʼd have to partner with organizations that share the same worldview as the tour,” says Scott Andrews, one of the tourʼs owners and organizers. “Compassion has really stepped up for us; we couldnʼt pull this thing off without them. Tom Shoes, New Release Tuesday, Jedidiah Clothing, and all of the other tour partners are helping us in ways we didnʼt originally count on. Its as if the tour has the power of all the supporters of these organizations, which is truly amazing.”
“We are thrilled that Music With A Mission is teaming up with Compassion International to bring a missional opportunity to each tour stop. Our hope is that the lives of many children who live in underdeveloped nations across the globe will be impacted and released from poverty in Jesusʼ name.”
Stephanie Waldrop Artist Relations, Compassion International
I’m excited that this is more than “just another concert.” This is a touring festival atmosphere with a purpose; the fans are going to walk away having experienced the event, not just attended. Music With A Mission tour is a next-‐generation tour, and will give fans a LOT of bang for the buck.
Owner, Elite Talent Agency
