Blockbuster Tour “The King’s Men”–Coming Soon!!

What do you get when you take four of gospel music’s most recognizable male vocalists and bring them together? The answer: The King’s Men!!

Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Sapp, and Israel Houghton are teaming up for what could easily be deemed the biggest gospel tour of the year. Dubbed “The King’s Men”, this huge tour is slated to hit major venues in 15 U.S. cities kicking off on September 15 in Phoenix, AZ and ending on October 14 in Brooklyn, NY. The tour is being produced by concert juggernaut Live Nation, producer of major concert acts ranging from Drake and New Edition to Toby Keith and Big Time Rush.

Tickets for the tour go on sale May 11 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning on Tuesday, May 8th at 10:00 AM ET through Citi‘s Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Between these four gospel music giants, The King’s Men have taken home over a hundred awards including  GRAMMY®, Dove, Stellar, BET, Soul Train, NAACP, and American Music Awards. Now, for the first time ever, these four household names will combine their forces for one of the industry’s biggest happenings.

Kirk Franklin commented: “The opportunity to partner with Live Nation is a GREAT honor and
responsibility. The genre of gospel music having this kind of massive marketing support is monumental,
and the talent on this tour makes it a must-see event! I’m very proud of this relationship and I expect it to
be a new groundbreaking platform for inspirational entertainment.”

“In the Gospel world, this is like Springsteen, McCartney, Prince and Elton hitting the road together,” said Kevin Morrow, Senior Vice President of Touring at Live Nation. “It’s going to be a once in a lifetime event for music fans.”
