Winter Jam, which bills itself as Christian music’s largest annual tour, makes it way to Fresno for a third year, this time with headline-act The Newsboys.
The tour, which touts 10 bands for $10, will be at Save Mart Center Nov. 11. Tickets are available the day of and only at the venue. Last year’s tour (with headliner Toby Mac) was in the top 20 in worldwide ticket sales, according to Pollstar Magazine’s mid-year special edition. It sold close to 9,000 tickets for its Save Mart Center date.
1. WAIL WITH THE WAILERS
The name that every reggae fan knows — The Original Wailers — is at Fulton 55 tonight. Sure, Bob Marley is long gone, but his guitarist Al Anderson carries the Wailers torch these days. Local band Irie Sun opens. So get up, stand up, go see a show. [More]
The tour has a ticketing model similar to the Rock and Worship Roadshow, which has become an annual hit in Fresno. Tickets are only available at the door and are modestly priced at $10. The Winter Jam tour has actually been around longer, though. This is its 16th year, though, as far as I know, its first time in Fresno.
