Danny Gokey and Coby James head out at the end of the month for the second year of the Hope Encounter Tour! The first show takes place on Thursday, September 26 in LaFayette LA and concludes Novermber 17th in Naperville, IL. We’ve heard Danny say that he will be rehearsing for four days prior to the tour kickoff. We’re guessing the song list will include his singles (HIFOM, TYHTBA, MTYTIA, Rise, The Comeback, Masterpiece, IYAII, and HSIY) and then some songs from his recently released album: Fighter, New Day, Wanted, Love God, Love People, and then??? Will he throw in a gospel cover or maybe a pop cover?
We are still to learn, wardrobe (hair) and dance moves for this year’s tour! We are excited to see this second headlining tour underway!
Danny Gokey and Natalie Grant Celebrate All the Wonder of the Christmas Season
It’s their third annual Christmas tour! The set is still beautiful, the artists dressed in finery and their voices (can this be?) are richer and fuller as they sing classics and hits together and separately. Approximately 1700 Wisconsinites gathered on a snowy night in Oshkosh Wisconsin – on the cold shores of Lake Winnebago to enjoy a wonderful night of music. Classics songs of Christmas, like “Holy Night”, “Mary, Did You Know”, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, “White Christmas”, “This Christmas”, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, and many more!
In Danny Gokey’s set of songs,”Lift Up Your Eyes” seemed to be a crowd favorite. It produced a lot of spontaneous clapping to the beat by the audience. He also sang his soon-to-be-released new song, “Just Haven’t Seen It Yet” as he encouraged listeners to hold on to hope and God’s plan for us. “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” and “Mary Did You Know” rounded out his singles performed. Unfortunately there was not enough time in this Christmas concert for Danny’s other CAC hits of “Rise” “Hope in Front of Me”, “More Than You Think I Am”, “Masterpiece” or “If You Ain’t In it”.
We see that iTickets has listed a new tour for Danny Gokey! It currently lists two Northeast concert dates in New York and Massachusetts. But that are not during the listed tour date range of March 30 through May 30th. Sounds like a solo tour is in the works! We’ll keep you posted on all the new tour dates as they roll out!
