NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 16, 2013 – Bebo Norman, Andrew Peterson and Sara Groves, three of Christian music’s most esteemed and highly-lauded singer-songwriters, are preparing to hit the road together this fall as co-headliners on the “In The Round” Tour. Kicking off Sept. 19, with three dates in Texas, the “In The Round” Tour will hit nearly 20 markets in September, October and November before wrapping up on Nov. 3, in Jefferson City, Tennessee. Tickets for all shows are available now and may be found by visiting www.InTheRoundTour.com.
Sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience for concert attendees, this series of performances will be unique in multiple ways. While Bebo, Andrew and Sara are recognized and celebrated as consummate storytellers and song crafters, they are also longtime friends. They will each perform some of their best-loved songs and share favorite stories, but as part of the “in-the-round” experience, all three will share the stage for the majority of the night, undoubtedly creating special moments throughout.
“I am honored to be sharing the stage with such thoughtful songwriters,” says Sara. “The in-the-round night always leaves room for spontaneity, and the band is incredible. I can only anticipate an amazing night of music and stories.”
The “In The Round” Tour creates another rare opportunity for attendees to catch one of Bebo’s final career performances, as he announced earlier this year that he will retire from the music industry at the end of 2013. “I couldn’t be more excited to be back out on tour again with Andrew and Sara,” Bebo says. “I can’t think of a better way to finish up my career than sharing the stage with two people who have inspired and moved me so deeply on personal and artistic levels.”
“The first tour I ever did was with Bebo, back in 1998,” Andrew adds. “I’ve been a fan ever since, and it’s a huge honor (and bittersweet) to be on the road with him again on his last tour. His songs have blessed a lot of people. I’m one of them.”
The “In The Round” Tour is presented by Compassion International, the world’s largest Christian child development organization ( www.compassion.com) that works through local churches to permanently release children from poverty. Founded in 1952, Compassion successfully tackles global poverty one child at a time, serving more than 1 million children—pre-natal through higher education—in 26 of the world’s poorest countries.
“Compassion is honored to have partnered with Bebo for more than a decade,” says Mark Hanlon, Sr. Vice President, Compassion USA. “In that time, he has brought over 15,000 children into a Compassion sponsor relationship where they are known, loved and protected. The ‘In the Round’ Tour will be a meaningful way to complete our relationship with Bebo, and we are excited to see hundreds of children find new sponsors over the next few months.”
