The tour will benefit Habitat for Humanity's home building in many ways. For starters, artists on the tour will collectively donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity for each ticket sold during the tour. In addition, funds raised from ticket auctions, special merchandise items and event packages will be designated to fund Habitat for Humanity in each tour city. The bands plan to pick up hammers and lend a hand at various Habitat for Humanity build sites along the tour and to invite some current and future homeowners to attend the show as their guests.
To kick off the tour, Third Day, Switchfoot and Robert Randolph & The Family Band will perform at a special kick-off party tonight at The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN. Pre-sale tickets for the tour will be available beginning on May 9th through the bands' fan clubs. The internet pre-sale begins May 14th and tickets go on sale to the general public May 16th.
All four headliners will preview material from their upcoming studio albums on the "Music Builds" tour, which will hit amphitheatres and select arenas in 23 major U.S. markets. Additional performers will soon be announced for the side stage, which will feature many of today's most promising up-and-coming artists.
Third Day Live with Switchfoot, Robert Randolph & the Family Band and Jars of Clay
