Sidewalk Prophets Announces “Great Big Family Reunion” Tour
Tour Will Be Band’s First In-Person Dates In Over A Year
Nashville, Tenn. (April 29, 2021) – Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Sidewalk Prophets announces the “Great Big Family Reunion” tour, the band’s first in-person tour in over a year, beginning in June 2021. After a successful and innovative year of livestream concerts, with over 35K virtual audience members, due to the COVID-19 pandemic putting restrictions on in-person shows, the “Great Big Family Reunion” tour will encompass the songs and storytelling of the livestream concerts, but will take place live and in-person while following all local and CDC COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The “Great Big Family Reunion” tour will run from June through August 2021, with show dates being released in groups beginning Thursday, 5/20. Unlike many in-person tours, fans will be able to submit venue recommendations for where they’d like the band to host the show. Venues must be able to hold 500 guests, including any COVID-19 capacity restrictions. Fans can submit venue recommendations until Wednesday, 5/19 at www.sidewalkprophets.com.
“After a year of enjoying playing our livestream concerts and connecting virtually with our fans, we’re excited to be out touring live again and doing it as safely as possible,” shares Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey. “On top of that, we’re excited to give fans the chance to submit their venues to be considered to host the tour. We can’t wait!”
