Michael W. Smith: 35 Years of Friends
Gospel Music Hall-of-Famer and multi-platinum Grammy®-Winner Michael W. Smith has announced plans for his fall headlining tour celebrating 35 years of his groundbreaking, iconic song “Friends”.
Smith says, “I’m really excited about the 35 Years of Friends Tour this fall. We had an event this spring, here in Nashville, where 56 of my friends and fellow artists came together to celebrate my 35 #1’s and the 35th Anniversary of FRIENDS. It was an amazing night – and, for me, brought back some memories of some songs I hadn’t thought of for quite a while! It’s going to be a blast dusting off some songs I haven’t done in concert for a long time. It will be a night full of all the hits – and, of course, I’m excited to lead worship every night. I can’t wait to see you there!”
The 35 Years of Friends Tour is exclusively produced by Awakening Events, and will provide fans the opportunity to hear hits and experience worship drawn from Smiths’ recordings and worship anthems from across his career including a live performance of “Friends”. As Smith was designing this unique show, unlike any tour he has embarked on before, it was decided that he would be his own “opening act,” to spend as much time with the crowd as he could.
