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.”

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.

Hawk Nelson to heat up the Nashville Predators ice with show Sunday, February 27th

NASHVILLE, TN…February 16, 2011 – With a passion for hockey and music, the band Hawk Nelson is combining the two loves on Sunday, February 27th with a concert after the Nashville Predators game.

In addition to Crazy Love, Hawk Nelson released The Light Sides, acoustic/stripped down versions of their hit songs from their four previous albums. Media reviews are already touting this release as a “must-own,” “worthy addition to their discography.” Crazy Love has also produced a 3-week No.1 single with the title track at CHR radio.

Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day is that special time of year when we are extra-thankful for that special someone in our lives. We usually do something kind for them, something selfless. To me, we should embrace this selflessness and live it out beyond one day, beyond one person. It’s a choice that can ultimately be a lifestyle. I guess that’s what Crazy Love is all about… sharing the immense Love that’s been given to us. Valentines Day every day? Sure, why not…
