Grammy Award winner Chris Tomlin not only sold out his 'Good Friday Nashville' concert days ahead of the show but he also smashed his own previous attendance record as the largest ticketed Christian concert in the history of Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Chris has committed to hosting the 'Good Friday Nashville' concerts indefinitely and currently has Bridgestone Arena on hold through 2024. Next year's concert is set for Friday, April 10, 2020. Tickets for the 2020 show are available NOW and half of the tickets have sold already! Go to www.goodfridaynashville.com.
"There were so many God moments that came together in this one concert," shared Chris. "I know it will have ripples far beyond one night. So many put their faith in Christ that night and so many children will find forever families."
Chris was on stage from beginning to end of the two and a half hour show. The night also included best-selling author Max Lucado, special guests Tauren Wells and Pat Barrett. Lauren Daigle made a surprise appearance to perform her song "You Say" and joined Chris, Tauren and Pat on "Good, Good Father."
The 'Good Friday Nashville' concert proceeds will benefit Tennessee Kids Belong, a statewide nonprofit who help children and families in the foster care system. "Foster family recruitment goals have been far surpassed the last two years," said Kristin Allender, Executive Director of Tennessee Kids Belong. "Last year the state certified 1,122 new foster families! They have a goal of 960 new families this year, with a special emphasis on the need for teenage placements. It has been beautiful to watch entire communities come around these families and children."
The inaugural 'Good Friday Nashville' event in 2017 was the previous record setting year as it became the largest ticketed Christian concert in the venue's history at the time. 2018's show forced open additional seating due to high demand for tickets. To have a lasting impact on Nashville and the state of Tennessee, each year's concert will give back to the community. 'Good Friday Nashville' was produced by Awakening Events and was presented by K-LOVE, Air1, The Fish and WAY-FM.
