TobyMac’s hit song, “Feel It” is the high energy and joyful encore for the “Hits Deep Tour”
We feel very fortunate that Danny Gokey’s tours often make a stop in Wisconsin. Not always, but our luck is better than most areas – the advantage of living in Danny’s home state!
The Hits Deep Tour is deep in talent. This show moves quickly from artist to artist. In fact, so quickly that I mistakenly told our group that Danny would be coming on after the intermission and we were walking out just as he took the stage! We quickly got back into our row. (Not our seats, we stood for Danny’s and most of the other artists sets!)
While Danny’s set wasn’t as long as we prefer (when he is the headliner) performing as the last before TobyMac shows how far Danny’s career has progressed since he released “Hope in Front of Me” and he couldn’t book a tour (as he has relayed.)
Danny does do three ballads back to back (What Love Can Do, Tell Your Heart to Beat Again and Masterpiece) but the rest of the set is upbeat with lots of dancing.
What an honor for Danny Gokey to return to the stage as a featured singer for final song with TobyMac and the DiverseCity Band. We can tell that Danny Gokey’s dancing has become more exuberant as the tour dates have progressed. Some could call this chaos when the artists retake the stage for the final verse of “Feel It” — I call it exuberant joy!
As far as tidbits that I usually glean from these events? Danny is not doing Meet and Greets and with an arena tour, back stage access is very much guarded. But…..
Danny just got in from California late the night before this March 1st show in Milwaukee. (Working on the video for “Masterpiece”). And this hectic schedule is taking its toll on Danny. He was a bit hoarse and was coughing occasionally. (Of course he still sounded great; he had to temper his crazy vocals just a bit.) On top of it, Victoria and Little Danny were on the bus — and we know how much sleep you get with a 5 and 3 year old! Fortunately he had his father in law along to help corral the kids!
We are thrilled that Danny had an opportunity to tour with TobyMac. Our hope is that this tour will result in a collaboration between these great artists!
