MICHAEL W. SMITH: 35 YEARS OF FRIENDS

Awakening Events today announced the spring extension of the Michael W. Smith: 35 Years of Friends Tour.  The 17-city spring tour includes a stop at the Carolina Theatre of Greensboro on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, and comes on the heels of a well-received fall run that celebrated 14 sold out dates. Tickets for the spring leg of the “35 Years of Friends Tour” are on sale now.

Smith says, “I am thrilled that we are taking the 35 Years of Friends tour back on the road this spring. The fall tour was so much fun and such a great success, I can’t wait to do it again. Last year in Nashville, we had an event where 56 of my friends and fellow artists came together to celebrate my 35 #1’s and the 35th Anniversary of “FRIENDS.” It was an amazing night, and, for me, brought back memories of some songs I hadn’t thought of for quite a while! To fit all the songs into one night and be my own opening act is really special to me. From the old songs I haven’t done in concert for a long time, to newer hits and, of course worship—it’s a full night. I can’t wait to see you there!”

Tickets are $75, $55, $39.50, or $25, depending on location. Groups of 10+ will receive 10% off. A $2 Promoter Fee, $3 Facility fee and NC Sales tax will be added to each ticket.
