Over 200,000 fans attend “Love Ran Red Tour” making career history as Tomlin’s biggest tour to date
Nashville, Tenn. (May 19, 2015) — More than 200,000 people attended GRAMMY®-winner Chris Tomlin’s “Love Ran Red Tour” this spring, making history as the biggest tour of his career to date.
Hitting 36 cities and selling out venues in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas and more, the tour saw an overwhelming response. But fans did more than just show up – they gave over $700K to CURE International, an organization with which Tomlin partnered for the “Love Ran Red Tour.” The donations will help fund 700 life-changing surgeries for children with disabilities.
Last fall, Chris and his wife Lauren joined the Board of Directors for CURE International, the largest provider of reconstructive surgery to disabled children in the emerging world.
“They’re really changing kids’ lives,” said Tomlin of the organization. “I’ve found this is a place where I can trust where the money is going, and it’s really going to heal these kids.” To learn more about Tomlin’s involvement with CURE, visit cure.org/tomlin.
