Headlining Tour Returns with Popular Names in Christian Music


Well-known artists Kutless, Shawn McDonald, Bread of Stone, and speaker Rob Roozeboom will be performing live in Cedar Falls as part of the LifeLight HOPE IS SOMETHING MORE Tour on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at Heartland Vineyard. 


Doors are expected to open at 6:15 p.m. with festivities kicking off at 7:00 p.m. 


Kutless, recognized for top-charting titles such as “What Faith Can Do,” “Strong Tower,” and “Carry Me to the Cross,” will be headlining the tour. Since forming in 1999, the Christian rock band has sold well over three million records and have released eight studio albums as of last year.


Returning to the stage for his second LifeLight tour in a row is singer/songwriter Shawn McDonald, known for major hits such as “We Are Brave” and “Closer.” 


He will be joined by Bread of Stone, whose most recent album “Not Alone” was released to the public this past February and features their upcoming single “All In.” 


RISE Ministries’ founder Rob Roozeboom shares a message of hope in the face of adversity and tells his testimony of the real life challenges of Muscular Dystrophy in order “to take what I’ve been dealt and use it to affect the lives of others.” 


Advance tickets (available on LifeLight’s website) will be sold for $15 for general admission and $30 for a VIP package which includes front area seating and a meet and greet with the artists. Tickets at the door will be $20. A group rate of $10 per ticket is available when 10 or more tickets are purchased.
