WINTER JAM 2012 DRAWS RECORD CROWDS
March 03, 2012
Jesusfreakhideout.com

More than halfway through its unprecedented 17th consecutive season, the Winter Jam 2012 Tour Spectacular-Christian music's largest annual tour-has played to nearly 347,000 people to date this year, with capacity audiences in 22 of the tour's first 29 cities. In addition, more than 105,000 people have made decisions for Christ.

Kicking-off the largest three-day opening attendance in Winter Jam history, the 47-city tour-this year headlined by Grammy®-nominated alternative rockers Skillet-launched in Charleston, West Virginia, on January 6. To date, Winter Jam has drawn sellout crowds at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina (20,696); Columbus, Ohio's Schottenstein Center (18,740); the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City (16,075); and Atlanta's Philips Arena (14,476), among other major venues.

Founded and hosted by Grammy®-nominated Christian music mainstay NewSong, this year's tour, in addition to headliners Skillet, also features Sanctus Real, former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler, Kari Jobe, Building 429, Group 1 Crew, illusionist Brock Gill, and national speaker Nick Hall. In addition, the OneVerse Pre-Jam Party includes performances from Dara Maclean, For King & Country, and We As Human.

"This year's tour is one of the most musically diverse line-ups we've ever offered," said Winter Jam creator and NewSong co-founder Eddie Carswell. "There is something for everyone on Winter Jam. From Skillet's amazing shut-up-and-rock headlining set, to the powerful message Nick Hall delivers, we see God at work night after night. With 18 more shows to go, we can't wait to see what else He's going to do."

The Winter Jam 2012 Tour Spectacular will also stop at Dallas' American Airlines Center; the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee; and the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, among other leading venues, before concluding April 1 at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Admission is $10 at the door, with no ticket required.

Promoted by Premier Productions and presented by Holt International, Winter Jam 2012 Tour Spectacular partners include BeMyVote.com, the University of Mobile, Teen Mania's Global Expeditions, OneVerse, The Life Book Movement, Logo's Bible Study Magazine, Teen Missions, Premier Christian Cruises, Xtreme Conferences, Camp Electric, The Creation Museum, Wayne E. Bailey Produce, and Texas TransEastern.

Since its formation by NewSong in 1995, Winter Jam has featured many of the top names in Christian music, including TobyMac, Third Day, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Jeremy Camp, among others. The Winter Jam 2011 Tour Spectacular outpaced attendance for all other tours in the first quarter, including Bon Jovi, U2, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, according to Pollstar's 2011 Worldwide First Quarter Ticket Sales "Top 100 Tours" chart.
