The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular 2012 is big. Really big. The arena tour puts popular Christian rock and pop bands alongside singer-songwriters and, with the diverse offerings, draws a huge crowd. The 2011 tour outpaced attendance for all other tours in the first quarter, including Bon Jovi, U2 and Lady Gaga, according to Pollstar.
This year, organizers expect it to be bigger. “After seeing more than 90,000 people make decisions for Christ during last year’s tour, we enter Winter Jam’s 17th year of ministry excited to begin the adventure of what God has in store for us – and audiences around the country,” said NewSong founding member and Winter Jam creator Eddie Carswell.
Alternative rock outfit Skillet headlines this year’s show, which will be held at the Mid-America Center on Thursday at 7 p.m. The tour will also feature former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler, Kari Jobe, Building 429, Group 1 Crew, illusionist Brock Gill, and national speaker Nick Hall. Winter Jam 2012 Tour Spectacular with Skillet and NewSong is Thursday, Feb. 16, at the MAC.
