DC Talk, the chart-topping group that gave Christian contemporary music a new sound in the 80s and 90s, is finally getting back together for a tour.

Band member Michael Tait told KTIS-98.5 last week that the band will begin touring again in 2020.

“Next year dc Talk will be doing a land cruise,” Tait said, drawing a distinction between it and the group’s performances on the Jesus Freak Cruise at sea. “We’ll be doing tour dates in the states, not announced yet, but it will be very few, but we’ll do them each year – [20]20, 21, and probably 22.

“We’ll be around here somewhere eventually,” Tait said, referencing St. Paul, Minn., the home of KTIS.

“I might be the first guy of the band to announce it. Toby [Mac] and Kevin [Max] haven’t, but it’s official we’ll be doing some dates.”

It would be the band’s first tour since the Supernatural Experience Tour of 1999.

With its combination of rock and hip hop, DC Talk was one of the most popular Christian groups of the 1980s and 90s, winning four Grammys and 16 Dove Awards.
