BORN: Kirk Franklin “birthed” the King’s Men tour by asking the three others to go on the road with him. He then took the idea to Live Nation, the biggest concert promoters in the U.S. with the idea that they could underwrite the tour. They did so and the King’s Men tour is the first ever gospel tour to be sponsored by Live Nation.
BIG BREAK: To prove that gospel had an audience big enough for Live Nation, he invited one of the company’s executives to attend the Stellar Awards with him. When the executive saw the passion of the gospel audience, he told his bosses they should get on board.
BACK STORY: The success – or not – of this tour depends on the turnout. If it succeeds, then there is talk of doing shows at House of Blues type venues with newer artists and mounting an all-female tour with acts like Yolanda Adams and Mary Mary. This tour could have a significant impact on the expansion of gospel music as a live music entity.
