(Nashville, Tenn.) January 23, 2008 – With much of the United States still looking at the bulk of winter in front of them, acclaimed multi-platinum rock band Third Day is busy pulling together the final touches on the projects that will kick off its year: an upcoming studio album release and the spring leg of its 2008 live tour.
The veteran Atlanta-based rockers welcome exciting young bands Sanctus Real, DecembeRadio and Revive to its spring tour, beginning March 6 in Charleston, SC and spanning 20 shows within a month’s time frame.
After taking a break from the road for much of the back half of 2007, Third Day enters the concert arena reenergized, and together with the presence of three vital and powerful new bands will make the evening’s entertainment and message combination that much more potent.
“We were able to see these bands play last summer and were blown away with their hearts, energy and music,” says Third Day bassist Tai Anderson. “Our fans are in for a very exciting time on the Third Day Live tour this spring.”
With a deep catalog of chart-topping hits (recently showcased on last year’s two-edition Chronology compilations), Third Day’s live show has long been a staple of the band’s interaction with its fan base. Even while reaching out through online avenues such as MySpace, Facebook, its official site at www.thirdday.com and the soon-to-be relaunched fan community Gomertopia, it’s always been the live experience that impacts fans the most.
Third Day’s promoters agree. “It’s a great privilege as a promoter to continue to be a part of Third Day’s touring career and excited to see them play markets that they have not been to in a while. Fans are in for a real treat this spring!” says Greg Ashford from Outerlight Concerts.
