Fan-Favorite Christmas Tour Returns for Second Year In A Row,
Featuring Love & The Outcome and Land of Color
Presented by Compassion International
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Multiple Dove Award winning band Tenth Avenue North has announced plans to bring back its fan-favorite “Decade The Halls” Tour this Christmas season, with special guests Love & The Outcome and Land of Color. Presented in part by Compassion International, the tour kicks off Nov. 29, making stops in markets like Lincoln (Neb.), Madison (Wis.), Milwaukee, Fargo, Sioux Falls, Cedar Rapids, Minneapolis and more, wrapping up on Dec. 9.
Heralded as “a Christmas experience unlike any other,” the “Decade The Halls” Tour brings a whole new meaning to the timelessness of Christmas. Featuring both traditional Christmas favorites and original Christmas songs, each set stylistically in a different decade, Tenth Avenue North will highlight songs from their current Christmas album, Decade The Halls, while they reminisce with audiences and honor the musical genres and styles of decades like the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s, up to the present.
“Imagine combining all the joyful exuberance of a children’s Christmas cantata with all the professional pageantry of Broadway and Rockefeller Center, and then throw in all the sacredness of a midnight Christmas Eve candlelight service and you get our tour, ‘Decade The Halls,’” says Tenth Avenue North frontman Mike Donehey. “We’re exploring the last 100 years of popular music. We take a song from each style of each decade of the last 100 years, and not only do we explore the time and the music, we explore the wardrobes! I’m talking costume changes, dance moves… a night the entire family’s going to love.”
A special VIP ticket is available which includes a pre-show artist Q & A and carol sing, milk and cookies with the band, and a signed Tenth Avenue North Christmas card. For details and ticket links, visit www.tenthavenuenorth.com/tour.
