Australian Christian praise band Hillsong Worship recently announced its new Awake Tour, which will include a stop in Bakersfield this summer.
The Grammy Award-winning global worship collective will play Mechanics Bank (formerly Rabobank) Arena on June 22 with special guests Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes.
This 28-city arena tour kicking off in May is connected to the band's full-length studio album “Awake,” which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Albums Chart.
Bringing Christ-centered songs of God-glorifying worship to the masses for almost three decades, Hillsong Worship has earned accolades, including achieving RIAA-Certified Gold status on its chart-topping hit “Who You Say I Am," which also earned the group dual honors for Worship Song of the Year during this year’s 50th annual GMA Dove Awards and 2019 K-LOVE Fan Awards.
“We have been humbled by the way God has been using the songs of our new studio album ‘Awake’ across His church and in the lives of individuals in the short time it has been out,” Brooke Ligertwood of Hillsong Worship said in a news release. “We cannot wait to bring them to full color, live expression in the context of these nights of ministry.”
The show is at 7:30 p.m. June 22 at the arena, 1001 Truxtun Ave. Tickets, ranging from $20 to $49.50, are on sale now at axs.com.
