Sidewalk Prophets will be taking their hit music, energetic live performance, and thought-provoking creativity on the road this winter and spring as they announce the 2017 leg of “The Prodigal Tour.” The tour is in partnership with The Mocha Club, a non-profit that the band has passionately supported since visiting the Democratic Republic Of The Congo in 2011 and seeing the organization’s work first-hand in caring for needs of the area.
This second leg of “The Prodigal Tour” is announced on the heels of another successful year for the band as their latest album, Something Different, has garnered rave reviews from both fans and critics alike. The album has already notched two radio hits, “Prodigal,” and “To Live Is Christ,” and their third single, “Impossible,” is at Christian radio now.
“The Prodigal Tour” sets itself apart from other tours as the band has created what they are calling a “immersive concert experience.” The centerpiece of this tour is Wander Creative’s suspenseful yet powerful short film, “The Prodigal,” which was written by Sidewalk Prophets co-founder Ben McDonald along with Matt Hadley.
This interactive experience tour also offers unique attention to detail. Audience members will see from the moment they walk in the venue that the entire building has been transformed to take them on a journey, weaving together scenes from the short film with the band’s music. The night culminates in a powerful moment of prayer for the lost.
“The music, the effects, the message….it was so engaging you felt as though you were part of the production. This is a must see for everyone, you will enjoy every second, and wish it would have continued all night.” – Robert Lawson (event attendee)
