Join us this week on Speak UP! as host Scott McCausey interviews musicians Andrew Peterson and Jason Gray about the upcoming Behold the Lamb of God Tour. One of the most highly anticipated Christmas concerts of the holiday season, Andrew Peterson’s Behold The Lamb Of God Tour, will launch December 1st, marking its twelfth successful year. Joining Peterson onstage will be his featured guests, singer/songwriters Jason Gray, Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive, and Andrew Osenga. The 15-city tour kicks-off in Huntsville, AL and concludes December 18th at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. A complete listing of the tour dates is available below and at www.andrew-peterson.com.
Peterson launched the Christmas tour in 1999 to present a musical rendition of the Christmas story and to reinforce the true meaning of the season. It was immediately embraced by fans nationwide because of the powerful performances, entertaining stories, and the sense of community between Peterson and his guest artists. The result was multiple sold-out venues and yearly return engagements. In 2004, fan support led Peterson to record the album, Behold The Lamb Of God: The True Tall Tale Of The Coming Of Christ, and the project won the 2004 Best Album of the Year, World Christian Music Editor’s Award and was named by Rhapsody.com as one of the ten best Christian albums of the decade. In 2009, Peterson released a 2-disc 10th Anniversary Edition of the project that includes a re-mastered version of the original CD and a live recording of the Christmas concert from 2008.
