Award winning band Sidewalk Prophets will soon be entering the doors of Christ Chapel to put on an electrifying show for students, faculty and community members as part of their nationwide tour. This band is a five member contemporary Christian band originally from Nashville.
The band formed in the early 2000s by lead singer Dave Frey and guitarist Ben McDonald, who were both attending Anderson University in Indiana.
The band played independently for several years before signing a record deal and relocating to Nashville. Since then, Sidewalk Prophets has been nominated for a Billboard Music Award, multiple K-LOVE Fan Awards and four Dove Awards.
The band has played for and entertained thousands of fans at their concerts and has sold almost 700,000 copies of their albums. The band currently has four released albums to check out: Something Different, Live Like That, Merry Christmas to You and These Simple Truths.
Their single, “Live Like That” off the album by the same name was nominated for the 2013 GMA Dove Awards Song of the Year.
Currently, Sidewalk Prophets is touring their 2015 album, Something Different, which includes the popular track Come to the Table.
Orange City is just one stop on this three month tour that is crisscrossing the country and even venturing into parts of Canada.
When Sidewalk Prophets passes through Orange City, the band will be turning Christ Chapel into a retro arcade through the use of sounds and 3D visuals.
The show will not only be a great night of music, but also a visually fantastic experience. Opening for Sidewalk Prophets is Bonray—a four sibling Christian pop band—and Christian indie pop artist Carmen Justice.
The night to see this award winning band on NW’s campus is approaching on Oct. 5.
The doors will open early at 7 p.m. for students, with doors for community members opening at 7:15 p.m. General admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased online or in Northwestern’s student life office in Ramaker.
For $25 tickets, fans can be a part of the band’s daily devotional and score a pair of 3D glasses (that will also be beneficial for the 3D concert experience.)
Another option is to purchase the $45 VIP ticket that includes attendance at the band’s devotional, 3D glasses, a tour laminate and an awesome opportunity to meet the members of the band after the concert.
Even with the decision of purchasing general admission tickets, Sidewalk Prophets is sure to put on a fun and unique show.
