The Winter Jam 2012 Tour Spectacular, the #1 tour in the world for the first quarter, is slated to head West this fall, headlined by GRAMMY® winning multi-platinum recording artist TobyMac. Hitting seven major U.S. cities and boasting a line-up of some of the top names in Christian music, Winter Jam West Coast will kick-off November 9 in Ontario, California.Created and hosted by GRAMMY®-nominated Christian music mainstay NewSong, the tour’s Western dates will also feature RED, Sidewalk Prophets, Jamie Grace, Chris August, Group 1 Crew, Jason Castro, Dara Maclean and Capital Kings, along with a message from evangelist Nick Hall. Following its Los Angeles-area launch, Winter Jam is set to rock Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena; the US Airways Center in Phoenix; Memorial Coliseum in Portland; Sacramento, California’s Power Balance Pavilion; and the Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho, before concluding November 18 at Fresno, California’s Save Mart Center (Fresno headliner to be announced).
“We’re thrilled to welcome TobyMac back to the Winter Jam stage,” said Eddie Carswell, Winter Jam creator and NewSong founding member. “One of Christian music’s biggest artists of all time, Toby is a showstopper and we can’t wait for audiences to experience this incredible night of music and ministry. Not only has God paved the way for Winter Jam to hit the West Coast again this year, but we’re more exited than ever to bring such a top-notch, diverse line-up along. We look forward to witnessing what God’s going to do in November!”
Earlier this year the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular shattered its own record to become the #1 tour in the world (first quarter) for the second consecutive year, according to Pollstar’s 2012 Worldwide First Quarter Ticket Sales Charts – Top 100 Tours. Headlined by GRAMMY®-nominated alternative rockers Skillet, the 47-city tour saw 32 sold-out concerts and surpassed last year’s record attendance by more than 10,000, playing to a total of nearly 535,000 people.
