An Evening with Casting Crowns (Thu. Feb 26, 2015 7:00 pm)

It’s hard NOT to feel peace wash over you as you sing those words from the title track of Casting Crowns’ new album Thrive, said the band’s front-man Mark Hall. “Life can be so challenging and it’s easy to become overwhelmed. What a gift to be reminded we were made to thrive!”

 

This award-winning group is coming to U.S. Cellular Coliseum on Thursday, February 26 for An Evening with Casting Crowns. Tickets go on sale December 19th. Prices start at $21* for groups of 10 or more, and groups receive 1 FREE ticket. Advance tickets are only $27*, plus fees. For all the details, go to www.premierproductions.com.

*Prices do not include a $3 facility fee and additional fees may apply.

 

“The idea of ‘Thrive’ came out of our student ministry,” Hall said. “I’ve been a youth pastor for almost 22 years and it’s still what I want to be when I grow up. The songs always really start out with what we’re teaching, and for years I’ve been using Psalm 1 in showing them what a believer looks like.”

 

The passage says, “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season.”

 

Casting Crowns’ has consistently delivered songs that spur listeners to evaluate their relationship with God and with each other. “The basic idea is let God define himself through you and if you’ll do that, you’re going to thrive,” Hall said.

 

Working again with producer Mark Miller, who signed the band to his label more than a decade ago, Casting Crowns has crafted another collection of songs that are entertaining and innovative, yet lyrically substantive. Thrive is a rich aural feast that leaves everyone with plenty of food for thought. In writing songs for Thrive, Hall enlisted some of his favorite collaborators, among them Matthew West, Matt Maher and Bernie Herms.

 

It’s been more than 10 years since the members of Casting Crowns heard their first single on the radio in July 2003, the same day Hall and his wife Melanie welcomed their daughter Zoe. Since then so much has happened in the lives of each member and along the way God has taught them so much. “He’s opened our eyes to our suspicion that He was way bigger than we thought He was,” Hall says with a smile. “He didn’t need Casting Crowns to come along to help His word get out. God is winning. He’s changing the world. It may look at times like things are getting darker and darker, but they are not. Everywhere you go you can see light and light wins.”
