King’s Men Tour 2012 Dallas Recap

27 Sep

The King’s Men Tour has come and gone through Dallas, yet its lingering effects remain. The trucks have packed up the stage, the Verizon Theatre has returned to its natural state…yet something’s different.

Gospel music is different and so is every single person that attended this groundbreaking concert Tuesday night in Grand Prairie.

The night started fast and ended at warp speed. The night seemed to end early and Israel Houghton’s plea for World Vision sponsors really seemed to bring the night to a warm close. Still, the King’s Men weren’t done turning gospel music upside down!

Closing the night out with a final, collaborative set (lasting about a half hour) all four headliners capped the night with the crowd’s favorite songs.

Hands were lifted high and the crowd was on its feet for nearly the entirety of the concert. Who knows if the King’s Men will return to the area. If not, it would take the full length of a year for concert goers to prepare to again be enraptured by the enthralling performances!

The King’s Men Tour is in Houston, this Thursday.

King’s Men Tour Dallas – Verizon Theatre

17 Sep

Israel Houghton singing “Stand”? Marvin Sapp singing “Imagine Me”? Donnie McClurkin singing “I Am A Friend of God”? Only at the King’s Men Tour!

The King’s Men Tour is headed to Dallas next Tuesday, September 25th. Gospel music’s leading men team up to storm the stage for Jesus. Each of them a headliner in their own right, this fantastic foursome will be singing each other’s hits as smash solos become daring duets as the quartet unleashes unparalleled entertainment and excitement at each tour stop!

The tour’s stop at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie will undoubtedly be special for headliner and tour brain trust, Kirk Franklin. This is essentially the ‘home’ stop for Franklin as he brings this groundbreaking tour home to the DFW area.

Franklin, a Fort Worth native has turned the gospel scene on its ear since he gained notoriety as a songwriter, appearing on records with the Mississippi Mass Choir, Rev. James Moore, Georgia Mass Choir and the DFW Mass Choir to name a few. Franklin has always maintained a knack for things bigger than the art itself, so this tour comes as no surprise!

Gospel music has never been featured as it will be, partnered with LiveNation one of the world’s foremost entertainment producers. Teaming up with Franklin are Pastors Donnie McClurkin and Marvin Sapp, and with them aboard, the tour is certain to meet its ‘feels like church’ quota! Israel Houghton will bring the praise with his high energy, cross over Christian Contemporary Music that gets audiences of all ages and races on their feet in worship!

Tickets and the concert schedule are available here!
