Third Day, the southern rock and worship band and longtime staples in the Christian music industry, will be calling it a career after 25 years and one final farewell tour.
“These last twenty-five years of Third Day have been an amazing ride that we never in our wildest dreams thought we would experience,” said founding member and lead guitarist Mark Lee. Vocalist Mac Powell added “We know this is a season that is coming to a close, and we wanted to give our fans one more chance to see us perform live. The live show has been the core fan experience, and this tour will give us an opportunity to go out and say thank you to the fans who have always been so supportive of our music.”
The band announced their decision to bring this chapter to an end in a video post on social media: “These last twenty-five years have been an amazing ride that we never in our wildest dreams thought we would experience. We know this is a season that is coming to a close, and we wanted to give fans one more chance to see us perform live.”
Third Day will embark on a 12-city nationwide farewell tour beginning May 31 in Seattle, Washington, hitting at least one city in every region of the mainland, including Third Day’s home state of Georgia, and wrapping up on June 27 in Denver, Colorado.
VIP tickets go on sale March 7th at noon, and general tickets are available on March 9th at 10 AM local venue time.
The southern rockers, fronted by vocalist Mac Powell, have been releasing CCM worship and pop/rock hits since their self-titled debut released in June 1996. Most recently, they returned to southern rock with Revival in 2017.
