For the first time in the history of the Newsong founded blockbuster Winter Jam Tour Spectacular 2014 Hillsong United will be the tour's headlining act. Beginnning this fall with a November 6 kickoff date at Albuquerque, the tour will be visiting nine major cities in November, including Sacramento, California's Sleep Train Arena; Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California; Boise, Idaho's Taco Bell Arena; and the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington, among others, before concluding November 16 at Portland, Oregon's Moda Center.
Besides Hillsong United, this coming year's Winter Jam West will feature 10 of Christian music's top artists for the price of only $10 per admission. Some of the artists appearing will include Jeremy Camp, Francesca Battistelli, Colton Dixon, Disciple, Trip Lee and evangelist Tony Nolan. In addition, the Pre-Jam Party will showcase Everfound, About A Mile and VERIDIA.
"This will be our fourth year taking Winter Jam out West and we believe it will be the best year yet," says Eddie Carswell, Winter Jam originator and NewSong founding member. "With Hillsong UNITED headlining, along with the other great artists in the line-up, each night will be an amazing night of worship and celebration. We can't wait to see what God is going to do!"
