2019 Christmas Tour Has Been Announced
The 2019 Christmas Tour has been announced. Press Release from MichaelWSmith.com:
'Multi-platinum, GRAMMY® winners Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith are reuniting to co-bill their popular Christmas tour this upcoming holiday season, where they will be joined by special guest Marc Martel. Incorporating a full symphony orchestra at each performance, this musical mastery is being presented by Balsam Hill® (www.BalsamHill.com). Kicking-off November 30 in Cincinnati, OH the seven-city tour travels to Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Grand Rapids, MI and more.
The highly anticipated show will feature selections spanning the artists’ expansive Christmas repertoires and combine the vast collection of critically-acclaimed holiday albums between them. The dynamic duo last brought their Christmas tour on the road in 2017 to the delight of fans in sold-out shows throughout North America.
“Michael is one is the most gifted musicians I know. His welcoming, easy going personality makes me look forward to every chance I have to share the stage with him…. especially at Christmas,” Grant says.
Smith states, “It’s no secret how much I love Christmas and playing Christmas music. I’m so looking forward to being back out with Amy for the first half of the season – and when she returns home for her Christmas residency at the Ryman – I look forward to carrying on for nine more shows with my band and the amazing Marc Martel!”
Grant and Smith both agreed, “We are so happy to have Balsam Hill as our Tour Sponsor again. A Christmas Tour sponsored by the manufacturer of the most beautiful Christmas trees and Christmas decorations; it just doesn’t get any better than that! Both of our homes are decorated with Balsam Hills products.”
“It all comes full circle! Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith – two class acts, whose music has been a big part of my own musical upbringing – have invited me to join them on their 2019 Christmas tour. As far as I’m concerned, when it comes to Christmas shows, this one is the standard. So excited to share the stage with Smitty and Amy, and see you all somewhere on the road this holiday season,” Martel adds.
In addition to the performance, and in support of their longstanding relationship with Compassion International, Michael and Amy are exclusively meeting fans who sponsor a child through the organization prior to the concerts through the website www.meetamyandmichael.com and www.meetmichaelwsmith.com. This “Compassion Meet & Greet” is an opportunity to learn more about the Compassion International’s child sponsorship experience and will include a photo and Meet & Greet opportunity with the artists. (Tickets to each concert must be purchased separately through the event’s normal ticketing outlets.) All three artists are also participating in the Sixth Annual Balsam Hill Celebrities for Smiles Charity Auction, where the public can bid on one-of-a-kind, celebrity-autographed, beautiful holiday ornaments on an eBay auction at www.CelebritiesforSmiles.com. All proceeds will benefit Operation Smile, an international medical charity that offers free cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries to children and young adults all around the world.
Following the seven-city run with Grant, Smith will continue the Christmas tour with Martel for nine dates hitting Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, Detroit, MI, and more. He will be accompanied by the full symphony orchestra on select dates as well. Meanwhile, Grant will return to Nashville for her Christmas at the Ryman residency with her husband Vince Gill. The 12-date holiday concert run will kick off on Dec. 11 at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium and close on Dec. 23. This year’s Ryman residency offers matinee times of the couple’s holiday show on Dec. 15, 22 and 23. Tickets are on sale and available via ryman.com, ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Press Release from MichaelWSmith.com:
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Michael W. Smith Invites Fans to Celebrate “35 Years Of Friends” With Fall Tour
Gospel Music Hall of Famer and multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Winner Michael W. Smith has announced plans for his fall headlining tour celebrating 35 years of his groundbreaking, iconic song “Friends”. The 23-city tour will launch in Springfield, Missouri on October 3 and will also feature stops in Atlanta, San Antonio, Phoenix, Sacramento and more before concluding November 17 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Amassing an in-depth catalog of achievements, Smith was recently honored with a star-studded tribute concert to celebrate his 35 #1 songs at Bridgestone Arena by a myriad of legendary performers including: Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Randy Travis, The Oak Ridge Boys, CeCe Winans, Jordin Sparks, Rascal Flatts, Wynonna and many more.
Smith says, “I’m really excited about the 35 Years of Friends Tour this fall. We had an event this spring, here in Nashville, where 56 of my friends and fellow artists came together to celebrate my 35 #1’s and the 35th Anniversary of FRIENDS. It was an amazing night - and, for me, brought back some memories of some songs I hadn’t thought of for quite a while! It’s going to be a blast dusting off some songs I haven’t done in concert for a long time. It will be a night full of all the hits - and, of course, I’m excited to lead worship every night. I can’t wait to see you there!”
The 35 Years of Friends Tour is exclusively produced by Awakening Events, and will provide fans the opportunity to hear these hits and experience worship drawn from Smith's recordings and worship anthems from across his career including a live performance of “Friends”. As Smith was designing this unique show, unlike any tour he has embarked on before, it was decided that he would be his own “opening act,” to spend as much time with the crowd as he could. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, 6/21 at 10:00 AM local time. More information can be found at MichaelWSmith.com: or awakeningevents.com.
