“When we began discussing the Drive-In Theater series and which artists made the most sense, Casting Crowns was an immediate YES,” said Dan Fife, President and Founder of Awakening Events. “We’ve had a long history of successful shows with Casting Crowns. The powerful way in which their music impacts people is something that is needed in this season. I’m honored that the Casting Crowns’ team has decided to join us on this exciting new journey, taking live music to the people, on the Drive-In Theater Tour Series.”
When speaking with Mark Hall, lead vocalist of Casting Crowns about the Drive-In Theater tour concept he had this to say. “We are excited for the opportunity to get out and play some shows in a safe environment. I think on a lot of levels families need this right now. We pray these nights will offer people hope.”
