Band To Give Away Gifts To Fans Each Night
All Tickets Are “Pay What You Can
Continuing their annual tradition of making new Christmas memories with fans, Curb | Word Entertainment’s Sidewalk Prophets will transform their yearly holiday trek into a festive virtual “outing” as they present the “Great Big Family Christmas” livestream show across eight different dates and four different time zones this December. The “Great Big Family Christmas” livestream show is the next chapter in a series of innovative livestream tours the band has executed since the global pandemic shut down traditional touring earlier this year. Tickets go on sale today, 11/19, at 9 AM CST.
Sponsoring the “Great Big Family Christmas” livestream show is Bethany Christian Services, an international Christian nonprofit. Chris Palusky, President & CEO of Bethany Christian Services, shares, “At Bethany, we’re so excited to be part of Sidewalk Prophets’ annual Christmas tour. Many of our family holiday traditions are being disrupted by the pandemic, but we’re gathering in innovative ways and still finding joy in this season. Sidewalk Prophets are doing the same, continuing the tradition of their annual Christmas tour and reaching fans through livestream concerts. We know that family changes everything, so when we heard about the ‘Great Big Family Christmas’ livestream, we couldn’t wait to get involved. We’re incredibly grateful to Sidewalk Prophets for partnering with us at Bethany to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus to vulnerable children and families around the world.”
Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey adds, “We are so thankful for Bethany Christian Services and the work they do on behalf of families around the world. It’s an honor to have their support for this special livestream and to be working together to promote something we believe in deeply – family.”
Broadcasting live from the band’s new studio space in Nashville, Great Big Family Studios, Sidewalk Prophets will deck the halls with a set list that dives into seasonal favorites from their acclaimed holiday LP, Merry Christmas To You, as well as hits from their catalog and fresh tracks from their latest full-length album, The Things That Got Us Here, featuring new songs like “Smile” and “Chosen.”
Kicking off Dec. 9, the “Great Big Family Christmas” livestream show times are all based on time zone, giving fans in each time zone across the country both a weekday and a weekend option for viewing. Tickets are required, but admission is “Pay What You Can,” with a free option available. All paid tickets include exclusive access to a virtual Christmas devotional with the band.
Intent on making every show special, Sidewalk Prophets will be giving away gifts to viewers each night, including one “big gift” awarded to a member of the Great Big Family at each concert. Fans who claim their tickets before Nov. 27 will automatically be entered to win the “big gift” for the show of their choice. A full list of dates and time zones are below.
