10 August 2017 – Nashville, Tenn. – Fervent Records artist Big Daddy Weave launches the Fall 2017 leg of their Set Free tour August 17th in Bossier City, LA. This fall’s 50 city tour debuted in the spring of 2017 to an enthusiastic reception from concert goers. The tour follows the release of Big Daddy Weave’s new single “Jesus I Believe.” Guest artists include one of the fastest rising artists in Christian music, We Are Messengers, and breakout artist Micah Tyler.
Big Daddy Weave events have a reputation for going far beyond a concert experience. The members’ heart for people is revealed in the transparent way they freely share their own challenges, including the serious illness and subsequent amputation of both feet of Big Daddy Weave member Jay Weaver last year. The group hopes to push that level of authenticity and interaction with the audience to an even deeper level on this tour.
“We are excited to head out again this fall, praying for a continuation of what God was doing this past Spring,” comments Big Daddy Weave’s Mike Weaver. “Darren Mulligan of We Are Messengers is like a brother to us, and together we have seen the Lord do tremendous things in the lives of so many individuals over the past year. We’re also so glad to welcome Micah Tyler to the Set Free tour. I’ve been seeing the momentum surrounding this talented guy from Texas over the last few years and can’t wait to see how he will be used in the bigger picture of the night.”
We Are Messengers, coming off their first two singles reaching the top 5 of the Christian radio charts, is reaching new heights upon the release of their current single “Point To You.” Coming to the U.S. from Ireland, frontman Darren Mulligan’s reputation for directness and his love for people has exponentially increased the band’s audience.
Micah Tyler’s single, “Never Been A Moment,” reached the #1 position on the Christian radio charts at the beginning of 2017. A popular worship leader, Micah’s newest single “Different” is being played on Christian radio across the country.
