MERCYME RESCHEDULES BANKERS LIFE FIELDHOUSE SHOW TO MARCH 14, 2021
NASHVILLE, TN…July 20, 2020 – Due to the current restrictions and continued uncertainty of when live events will be allowed to take place, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winning band MercyMe has made the difficult decision to move their fall 2020 tour to the spring of 2021.
Announced to fans via the band’s socials over the weekend, they also asked concert goers to please note that while this is the current plan, future changes may have be made at some point due to state/local government guidelines.
“For those of you who have already purchased tickets for one of our originally rescheduled concerts, your tickets will still be valid for the newly rescheduled date,” the band’s statement read. ”We will also be granting refunds for the next 30 DAYS to those of you who have purchased tickets and are unable to attend the new date. For refunds, please contact your initial point of purchase. More information regarding on-sale date for the newly announced concerts will be coming soon, and cities noted below with an * are already on sale.”
MercyMe also took the opportunity to let fans know that they are currently in the studio and are planning to have new music in the coming months, saying, “So get ready, we can’t wait for you to hear it! It’s our desire for everyone to stay safe and healthy, and we’ll see you all in the Spring of 2021!”
Most recently, MercyMe performed the National Anthem to kick off the Indycar Genesys 300 race in early June. Airing on NBC Sports, the band pre-recorded the anthem to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.
It continues to be a landmark time for the multi-platinum selling MercyMe. A major motion picture based on the life of frontman Bart Millard who wrote the mega-hit song “I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father opened at a remarkable No. 3 at the box office on Mar. 16, 2018 (Lionsgate, Roadside Attractions). Carrying the same name, Millard’s first memoir also released this year followed by the unveiling of I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe. MercyMe was named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year and just received their eighth AMA nod. The group is the 2018 GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year, and since their debut in 2001, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winners MercyMe have sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales, garnered more than 48 No. 1 multi-format radio singles and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,” (No. 4 AC/Top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC). MercyMe made history in 2014 as “I Can Only Imagine” surpassed 2 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. The album containing the hit, Almost There, recently received 4x platinum certification from the RIAA. In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe’s “Word Of God Speak” the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian Songs and Christian AC Songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry’s most notable talents. They have sold out venues throughout the US and Canada, including Radio City Music Hall, and have appeared on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, FOX New Channel’s FOX & Friends, CNN, ABC News and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today and more. MercyMe’s eighth studio album, the RIAA Certified Gold Welcome To The New, garnered two GRAMMY® nods and four radio hits. LIFER, their latest chart-topping, GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated album, includes the RIAA certified platinum, GRAMMY® nominated smash hit “Even If” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19-week streak at No. 1.
