Creation Festival: The Tour, the blockbuster event of the Fall, is coming to the Crown Coliseum on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m.Patterned after the Creation Festivals, the nation’s largest Christian music festival and the premier name in Christian music events, this “mini Creation on wheels” will be headlined by BEC Recordings band, Kutless, with special guests, Thousand Foot Krutch and Pillar.  The line up is rounded out by female-fronted rockers, Fireflight, Run Kid Run and Integrity’s Worth Dying For providing a time of praise and worship. 
    KJ-52 will also perform and serve as MC for the night. World-renowned speaker, Bob Lenz, will share the gospel each night, with Pastor Harry Thomas, Creation Festival director and co-founder and Teen Mania’s founder, Ron Luce, also joining the tour on select dates. A special “pre-show” will kick off the event, featuring performances by Esterlyn and Capital Lights. {mosimage}
    “I think Christian rock needs this tour,” explains Rob Beckley, frontman for Pillar.  “It is a great effort from Creation to have the guts to put this together.  Christian rock needs the tour; one, for the strength of the line up and two, because this generation needs the masses to come together and be encouraged every night through music and leave stronger than they came in.  Pillar is excited to be a part of the tour, and I’m excited to see the other bands!”  
    The goal of Creation Festival: The Tour is to not only provide an exciting evening of great music, but also present an opportunity to impact the local community through outreach. Each city will partner with a local ministry, such as a food bank or clothing drop and attendees are asked to bring a can of food, thick socks or a warm blanket to donate to the cause.  Details for the outreach for each date can be found online at  
    “The center purpose and mission of what we do at the Creation Festivals and now thru this tour is to give ‘Tribute to our Creator,’” says Nick Kulb, executive producer of the Tour. “That simple founding principal from 30 years ago is still in the forefront of our operations and is proving the test of time. This tour is extremely ministry and community active — we are looking forward to seeing thousands of lives changed as they accept Christ in the nightly alter call — we’ve teamed up with Compassion International and we’ve also launched the ‘It Starts With You’ campaign.  This tour is so much more than the artists performing nightly; collectively, each of the bands and speakers are heading out on a united front with the Good News of Christ Jesus and to see lives radically changed for Him.”
