1st Tidbits of The Rise Out of the Dark Tour -By Jan

I made it to the North Charleston stop of the Rise Out of the Dark Tour and here are my first tidbits!

I didn’t get to ask a question at the Q&A… but I did get lots of photos and short videos. We will see how much turns out!
Here is installment #1:

The smog machine was something else…..
Hey @DannyGokey, can we chat with your special effects guy? Poisoning the artist (and the front row fans) isn’t very nice…. 😉 #BlueSmog

Rise Out of the Dark Tour – What to Expect

The Rise Out of the Dark Tour, co-headlined by Danny Gokey & Mandisa- with guests artists of Love and the Outcome and Jasmine Murray- is out on their multi city tour. We appreciate this info and review by Vinyl Theology.  Its great to get a preview of the tour and learn about the set order of the artists.

Danny Gokey played with his own 5-man band (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and him on vocals), that became a 7-man band later (adding a trumpet and saxophone).  His vocal power that was witnessed on American Idol was on full-display and he easily handled the pop-inspired R&B songs he performed with occasional nods to Latin inspired tunes.

Cut between the various acts were various videos of Gokey and Mandisa talking about their tour, and one humorous one also featured Jasmine Murray, all 3 of which were American Idol contestants.  They chose to lampoon the hit show a bit with all 3 taking on the roles of the 3 original judges.  Gokey was Simon Cowell who had insults aplenty, Jasmine Murray was the ever positive Paula Abdul, and Mandisa was an outlandish Randy Jackson with hand gestures and a couple of “dawgs” thrown in for good measure.
