The 'Adoration Tour,' which will begin on March 7th (featuring Rebecca St. James, Newsboys, and special guest Jeremy Camp), is gathering much attention from thousands of Christian music-lovers and fans all around the nation, garnering 5 consecutive sold out dates/ shows and even having second shows added in Ft. Meyers, FL and Spokane, WA, "Newsboys are seeing this tour hit a new chord with the fans,” states manager of Newsboys, Wes Campbell. “Attendance at these sold out shows are averaging over 4,000 per show, and the fans are really coming with a committed heart for worship. The combination of Newsboys and Rebecca St. James is something we have tried to put together for a couple years now, and we are seeing why this package makes sense."

Newsboys continue to receive more nominations, on the heels of their 2003 GRAMMY nomination Their latest release Adoration: The Worship Album picked up Dove Award nominations for “Group of the Year” and “Praise & Worship Album Of The Year” with front man Peter Furler receiving two additional nominations for the chart topping "He Reigns" (“Song Of The Year,” “Worship Song of the Year”).

“Worship is our love response to God’s love for us. It’s a constant part of our life,” notes Rebecca St. James. “Our hope is to serve the local body, and our prayer is that they will come prepared to experience a fresh encounter with God. We are asking for their prayers for the evenings."
