Mac Powell’s first solo tour
“Mac Powell & Friends Tour” is Mac’s first series of solo performances. Before, the musician was a frontman of the Christian rock band “Third Day”, a four-time Grammy Award winner.
In 2018, the band announced its farewell and went on its final tour. After disbanding, Mac Powell continued performing as a solo artist.
The tour promises to be an intimate night with songs full of faith. Furthermore, concertgoers will hear exclusive stories about these songs and what inspired Powell to create them.
Speaking about inspiration, Mac Powell shared why he decided to go on a solo tour:
I have always loved songs and the process of writing them. For a long time, I’ve thought there should be a tour that focused specifically on the songs in their raw form. Each night on tour, we’re going to be sharing stories of faith and playing the hits you know and love in an intimate setting like they were written in.
Friends behind “Mac Powell & Friends Tour”
Though Powell goes on a solo tour he will not perform fully alone. Talking about the upcoming concerts, Mac thanked his friends who will join the Christian rock artist on stage:
I’m honored to have Mike Donehey, Josh Baldwin, and David Leonard, who are great friends and incredible songwriters, joining me for this one-of-a-kind night and tour!
Mike Donehey is indeed Powell’s long-time best friend. Previously, Mac joined Mike when the latter performed with his band “Tenth Avenue North”. Like Mac’s band, “Tenth Avenue North” ceased its activity, so Mike Donehey is performing as a solo artist for now. Besides, he has published the book “Finding God’s Life for My Will” and hosts the “Chasing the Beauty” podcast.
Josh Baldwin is not only a Christian singer but also a worship pastor. He is a part of Queen City Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. As an artist, Baldwin released four albums, and one more is expected to come out in October.
David Leonard also performed with Mac Powell several times. He was a former member of an “All Sons and Daughters” Christian worship music duo. Leonard also won a Dove Award as a producer for his album “The Wait”.
While there are about two months before the tour, Powell’s fans are waiting in anticipation. Last week, Mac released a deluxe edition of his album “New Creation”. This record previously came out in 2021, and now the deluxe edition has two new songs. One of them “You Are” has an official lyric video that is available now on YouTube.
