Third Day Hits Number One and Announces a 45-City Tour
Last week, Third Day hit number one on Billboard with “I Need A Miracle” from the band’s latest and 12th studio album project, Miracle, which released on November 6. The song marks Third Day’s 28th career number one radio single, reports Ginny McCabe, Special to ASSIST News Service.
Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Train, The Killers), the 12-track Miracle was recorded in the band’s Atlanta-based studio, The Quarry.
“This song is special to us because it was inspired by a story shared by one of our fans,” said Third Day’s frontman, Mac Powell. “It’s about how music, and the great work of our friends at radio, can offer hope to a hurting world. We’re looking forward to getting to play this live on our spring tour.”
The band is also pleased to announce that Third Day will hit the road this February for a 45-city headlining “The Miracle Tour.” The tour will feature special guests including “American Idol” finalist Colton Dixon and singer-songwriter Josh Wilson.
“The Miracle Tour” will launch February 21, in Fairfax, Virginia, and will travel to other major cities across the nation, including Memphis, Dallas, Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, Indianapolis, Grand Rapids, Chicago and more before concluding in May. Two tour stops are scheduled for Ohio, with a March 7th show in Akron and March 24 in Grove City. Tickets are on sale now for the majority of the shows.
