Premier Productions & Dante Bowe Announce The ‘Worship Nights Tour’

Premier Productions, Dante Bowe and Food for the Hungry announce the Worship Nights Tour. The tour will span eight cities and will see Bowe fresh off the What Are We Waiting For? Tour with For King & Country.

“I think this tour is going to be a special one because we’re going back to simple worship,” said Bowe. “We’re stripping away the smoke, lights and all the extra things we tend to use. Not that those things are bad, but these are going to be nights of remembrance. Remembrance of what Jesus has done and what He has yet to do.”

For his first solo headlining tour, Bowe is bringing along fellow Maverick City artist Aaron Moses and Hillsong’s Aodhan King.

Audiences can sign up for the exclusive pre-sale on Wednesday, May 18, at dantebowelive.com. Tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, May 19th at 10:00 a.m. local time.

The eight-city summer tour will kick-off on August 13th in Minneapolis, MN and will stop in Columbus, OH, St. Louis, MO and Memphis, TN before the final show on August 21st in Lexington, KY.

Dante Bowe’s “Joyful” Makes History Reaching Both Billboard Top 30 Christian AC & Gospel Radio Charts

They say that there’s a first time for everything.  We’re not sure who “They” are – but they are right! For a rare time in modern history, one single version of a song has bridged the gap, blurred the lines, and brought unity between the Gospel and CCM formats.  That bridge builder is “Joyful” by Dante Bowe of Bethel Music.  “Joyful” is the first single to have the same version of the song to appear on both of Billboard’s Top 30 National Airplay Charts – Gospel at #23 and CCM at #14, and we’re overjoyed, to say the least (pun intended).

There has been a unified cry over the past couple of years within our God-blessed country for true equality and justice among all races, sexes, and classes. Not only that, but we encountered a global pandemic that worked hard at destroying hope in everyone’s lives. This left most Americans in a continued state of desperation and exasperation and was the exact climate when Dante’s “Joyful” hit the airwaves.

“Joyful” certainly hasn’t solved these problems, but it represents the anthem of those who are carrying the torch of change in their hearts and believe that better days start with making today better by choosing to be “Joyful” in it.

The appearance of “Joyful” on both Top 30 Billboard Charts has certainly not come without the hard work of a faithful and committed team of multiple notable promotion teams. Promotional teams for this song include Chris Hauser, 55 Promotions, Boxer Poet, Revival Music Company and their in-house team of promoters – Push It Marketing & Promotions, and The Bellamy Group.

Pat Barrett & Dante Bowe Collaboration Continues To Draw Attention

Worship leaders and songwriters Pat Barrett and Dante Bowe collaborated on a stirring ballad, “Nothing / Something,” which garners attention for its powerful message. In our world where we can tend to measure ourselves or define our worth by how many followers, likes, views we have on our social media platforms, or struggling for identity or our voices to be heard, the lyrics of “Nothing/Something” remind us in the end, loving ourselves and loving others is what matters…nothing else.

If I can’t love my neighbor like I love myself
If I won’t move when my brother cries out for help If I’m too proud to forgive before the sun goes down
Then this life that I’ve been living what does it mean now
At best it all means nothing Without love it all means nothing – lyrics from “Nothing / Something”

“In the end, what truly matters? We all want our lives to mean something,” shares Pat Barrett. “I think that’s why the message of this song hits me so hard. For me, it cuts through the noise of shallow, self-obsessed living and opens me up to a higher perspective. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and feel the sorrow of meaninglessness. It doesn’t have to be that way. Jesus presented a path to deep eternal joy and meaning rooted in divine love. And that message doesn’t have a shelf life. It’s timeless. And even more, it’s eternally significant. Writing and singing this song with Dante was such a powerful experience. For me, this song has been a beautiful confrontation to any message that promises soul fulfillment apart from love.”

Since the release of the song, it has been gaining online traction. It is the top-performing video on Barrett’s YoutTube channel above his No. 1 single “Build My Life.”

“‘Nothing/Something is such a special song,” states Dante Bowe. “When Pat asked me to feature, I was honored. This song will stand as a constant reminder of the fact that we are all called to be like Jesus. Love is who Christ is. Without love, we wouldn’t be here. Without love, we wouldn’t have freedom. Without love, it all means nothing. With love, we can fulfill our purpose as people surrendered to the Lord. Love is the cause. With love, life is worth living.”

Earlier this year, Barrett release his 17 track studio project, Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly, (Bowyer & Bow / Capitol Christian Music Group). He followed that release with a special live EP Nothing / Something (Live), which features songs from the new studio project with guest artists like Mack Brock, Chris Tomlin, and this new song with Dante Bowe.

In September he will be headlining his “Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly – Worship Nights Tour” (produced by Transparent Productions and sponsored by Food for the Hungry) followed by the “Singalong Tour” with the powerhouse lineup of Barrett, Phil Wickham and Brandon Lake for an in-person, one of a kind worship atmosphere featuring both solo and collaborative performances.
