Newsboys United Tour Coming to Salina

SALINA – The Tony’s Pizza Events Center is proud to announce that Newsboys are coming back to Salina on Thursday August 2 at 7 p.m. with the United Tour!

The Newsboys are welcoming back to the stage former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the “Newsboys United Tour,” showcasing “all the hits… under one roof… for one tour.”

Along with an electrifying headlining set led by frontman Michael Tait and longtime members Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis, Newsboys United will see Furler and Joel join the group for many of the most popular hits of the band’s three-decade career. The “Newsboys United Tour” will also feature special guest Word Worship recording artist Zealand, which is founded and fronted by Joel.

Peter Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the group’s former drummer and lead vocalist, embarked on a successful solo career in 2009. During his tenure, the band earned five Gold® recordings and released such classic hits as “Shine,” “Breakfast” and “He Reigns.” As Newsboys’ bass player, Phil Joel was featured on multiple albums and sang lead on the group’s hit single “Entertaining Angels.” Since his departure, Joel has bowed seven recordings as well as 2015’s acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship – The EP.

One of the most influential bands in Christian music history, Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Comprised of Michael Tait (lead vocals), Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys’ signature songs include “We Believe,” “He Reigns,” “Miracles” “Born Again” and their Platinum®-certified mega hit, “God’s Not Dead.” The latter inspired one of the most popular Christian film franchises of all time, PureFlix’s God’s Not Dead and God’s Not Dead 2, both of which included appearances by the band.
