Millions-selling, Christian recording artist TobyMac is returning to fire up the Fargodome this Sunday, Feb. 16. With his last appearance at the venue barely a year and a half gone, his 20-city Hits Deep Tour stops in Fargo for the singing star to give fans another live performance.
His October 2012 tour stop was made with guests Jamie Grace and Chris August, all in support of the singer’s 2012 album “Eye On It.” Having nabbed a Grammy and hitting the top of the Billboard 200, “Eye On It” has been one of the singer’s biggest efforts in recent years, resulting from his passionate songwriting about life’s spirituality.
“It was a very high-energy show. Lots of flashing lights, lots of dancing,” concert attendee Emily Karkoska said. “He did a little bit of everything from all of his CDs. It was a jam-packed show. He would blend different songs together. He played a lot.”
As a Christian artist, TobyMac also brought his spirituality into his 2012 Fargodome show, which made for an experience not usually available in any other big-name concerts these days.
“There was some testimony within the concert, and it was almost like a worship experience which was really refreshing,” Karkoska said.
Now on his Hits Deep Tour, TobyMac is bringing the best of his repertoire and all the fan favorites together for a roundup concert. Several accompanying acts are joining him along the way, such as Christian musicians Matt Maher, Matthew West and Brandon Heath, gospel singer Mandisa and Christian pop band Capital Kings. Capital Kings will be by TobyMac’s side at his Fargodome stop this Sunday.
“This tour is going to be exactly what most people want to see when they go to a concert — a show where you know every song,” TobyMac said in a tour statement. “Big hits that hit deep! Not just hits because they are sonically a good listen, but because they’ve spoken deeply to our souls. These artists are all headliners in their own right, but we’ve come together to serve up the hits that have become a part of people’s lives.”
Staging for this show will be on a smaller scale as TobyMac will only utilize the east side of the Fargodome for floor and raised seating. Less is sometimes more, however, and with his 2012 show still vivid, this coming tour stop has all the potential of before.
“I’d go see him again in a heartbeat,” Karkoska said. “It was a phenomenal show with high energy.”
TobyMac with Capital Kings performs at 7 p.m. on Feb. 16 at the Fargodome. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets range from $23.50 to $43.50, and are available at the Fargodome box office and at fargodome.com.
