The Newsboys Return to Bemidji
Bringing their “Love Riot Tour” the Newsboys return to the Sanford Center Arena with special guests The Afters and Ryan Stevenson, on Saturday November 5th, 2016 at 7:00p.
The Newsboys have been known for defining Christian music for more than two decades, only to blow up expectations as they’ve recreated themselves again and again. The Newsboys move fluidly between rock and pop, worship and dance, to the delight of their legion of fans. They’ve sold more than 8 million units and amassed eight Gold certifications, 33#1 radio hits, four GRAMMY nominations, two American Music Award nominations and taken home multiple Dove Awards.
Texas-based, four-piece band The Afters were propelled into the national spotlight with their FairTrade Services, Sony Music Label Group debut I Wish We All Could Win. The project spawned the swirling, melodic hit “Beautiful Love,” earning the band an enthusiastic following when the song was selected as the theme track for MTV’s “8th and Ocean.” “Beautiful Love” is RIAA certified Gold digital single and garnered the band an mtvU award. The band released its fourth studio album, Life Is Beautiful in April 2013 via Fair Trade and is currently in the studio recording their fifth studio album, Live on Forever, set to debut spring of 2016.
