Casting Crowns Kicks Off Tour at Sprint Center on Feb. 4

GRAMMY, AMA and five-time Dove Award-winning Group of the Year Casting Crowns is announcing plans to continue its highly-successful “Until The Whole World Hears” Tour in 41 more cities this spring. Kicking off at Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO. on Feb. 4, the tour features a brand new lineup with special guests Kutless. Indie rock band CALEB, featuring brothers Caleb and Will Chapman, will also join the tour roster.

The spring leg of the “Until The Whole World Hears” Tour follows a well-received, 41-city run of fall dates on which Casting Crowns played in front of nearly 150,000 people at multiple sell-out performances. The spring tour also comes on the heels of the record-breaking release of the band’s new studio album, Until The Whole World Hears, which recently sold more than 167,000 copies in its first week, making Casting Crowns the highest-debuting Christian music artist in SoundScan history. The album landed at No. 1 on the Nielsen SoundScan Current Contemporary Christian Album Chart and No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart behind John Mayer and Norah Jones.
