Videos & Photos: the Hope Encounter Tour Finale

Danny Gokey, the Hope Encounter 2019

The Danny Gokey Band Wows a Sold Out Show

I was fortunate to take in the final concert of Danny Gokey’s “Hope Encounter Tour” at a suburb of Chicago.  This was likely the biggest sell out audience of the tour.  It was announced that the Naperville venue had over 2,700 attendees!  I can believe it!  I also think it was the largest VIP line I had ever seen.  I conservatively estimated 200 people (my husband thought it was closer to 300) waited in line to have a picture taken with Danny before the VIPs could claim the best seats for the night.

Interview of Danny Gokey by John Moser- The Morning Call

Danny Gokey Continues to Change, Grow

John J Moser of The Morning Call in Allentown, PA has been following Danny Gokey since his “American Idol” days – which is over ten years,  You can read his latest, full interview of Danny HERE.

My three biggest take-aways from this interview are:

  • “Well, being my first headlining tour, we took a lot of risks on that tour. I’m a risk-taker at heart; it’s like ‘go big or go home.’ A lot of lessons learned – because from now on, I’ll be doing my own headlining tours. And that one just, it really made sense to me in the sense that I got to dream, and I got to see ‘this is what my vision would look like if I did a tour.’ You know?  “Yeah, it went very well. Very well.”
  • “And I love country music to this day, and I might do another record in the future.”
  • “You know, it’s funny because raising the kids right now is a lot of work. … But I feel like I’m planning for my future. I feel like the more kids, the merrier. You just gotta get through the season of, like, no sleep. And that lasts for quite some time. And lots of sacrifice.  “So I’m just bracing myself. I keep telling myself this: ‘I’ll thank myself later.’ I come from a family of six kids and there’s such a richness that comes during when we all get together for holidays. Now there’s a lot of drama – I’ll say that, unfortunately. But I guess that comes with it, doesn’t it?”

Mr Moser gave a very favorable review of Danny’s first headlining tour last year.  You can read it HERE.
