Nashville, Tenn. (March 10, 2023) — For the first time, GRAMMY® nominee Phil Wickham and five-time GRAMMY® winner Brandon Lake are joining forces for “Summer Worship Nights,” a co-headline bill slated to visit arenas in a dozen markets this August. Presented by leading concert promotor Transparent Productions, the highly anticipated tour will feature direct support from hip-hop titan KB. Ticket pre-sale begins today, Mar. 10, nationwide at 10 a.m. local time with public on-sale starting Monday, Mar. 13. A full list of dates, cities and ticket links are available at www.summerworshipnightstour.com.
“It’s been so fun watching Brandon carry what God has given him, and I respect him as a leader, brother and friend. At ‘Summer Worship Nights,’ we truly want to gather as worshipers, to sing and lift up the name of Jesus,” Wickham shares. “I cannot wait for these nights!”
“This is a dream come true for me. There is no one else that I have imitated my life after more than Phil Wickham. He’s been a hero, brother, mentor and friend,” Lake adds. “The energy on this tour is going to be absolutely CRAZY! Expectancy is the breeding ground for miracles, and we’re coming expectant to believe God is going to move.”
“God’s glory is not restrained or limited to any musical genre,” says KB, who will open each night with his authentic brand of Gospel-centered rap. “I’m excited for this opportunity to celebrate the diversity of the Body of Christ by uniting together to bring Him glory.”
Wickham’s new single, “This Is Our God,” is proving to be one of the biggest songs of his career to date. When it officially launched at radio on Feb. 24, it become the No. 1 most-added song of 2023 thus far with more than 70 stations adding it out of the gate. The anthem is currently Top 20 and climbing on both the Billboard and Mediabase Christian Audience charts. “This Is Our God” previews the California native’s forthcoming studio effort, due later this year, and follows three back-to-back chart-topping singles from Wickham’s Dove Award-winning album, Hymn of Heaven.
Meanwhile, Lake just scored his first No. 1 at radio as a solo artist with “Gratitude” from his full-length label debut, House of Miracles. Alongside his group Maverick City Music, the Charleston, S.C., resident recently won all four Christian/Gospel categories at the 65th annual GRAMMY® Awards in February. Prior to co-headlining the “Summer Worship Nights” outing with Wickham, he’ll take his “Miracle Nights Tour” to 13 cities this spring, beginning Mar. 17.
Fresh off the release of his first book, Dangerous Jesus, KB will kickstart each evening of the “Summer Worship Nights” tour with new music, as well as fan favorites, including his recent collaboration with Lake on “Graves.”

About Phil Wickham:
Phil Wickham is a GRAMMY® nominated artist and leader in the modern worship movement, having penned countless songs sung in churches around the world. Most recently, his single, “This Is Our God,” opened the pages of 2023 with a wellspring of declarative praise to our God who saves. Also in 2023, the artist was nominated for two GRAMMY® awards in the category of “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song,” recognizing the songs, “Hymn of Heaven” and “Holy Forever.” Hymn of Heaven, Wickham’s latest full-length album (June 25, 2021, Fair Trade Services), won him “Worship Album of the Year” at the 2022 GMA Dove Awards, while he was named “Songwriter of the Year” as well as awarded “Worship Recorded Song of the Year” for the title track, “Hymn of Heaven.” In addition, the song, “Battle Belongs,” topped five different radio charts for multiple weeks. This powerful album was written during a year when the family of God couldn’t physically gather in houses of worship around the world. “Hymn of Heaven is full of praise and thankfulness, just lifting up the name of Jesus and speaking what we really know is the reality, even though we don’t see it,” he says. “All I want to do is facilitate moments where people can encounter the presence of God.” Wickham’s anthemic “Living Hope,” an RIAA Gold®-certified hit, earned him a GMA Dove Award for “Worship Recorded Song of the Year” in 2019, while his first RIAA Gold®-certified single, “This Is Amazing Grace,” was his first career No. 1. This iconic song held the top spot for thirteen consecutive weeks and was named Billboard’s No. 1 “Christian Airplay Song of the Year” in 2014, as well as BMI’s “Christian Song of the Year” in 2015. Wickham’s music has received hundreds of millions of streams across multiple platforms, with his discography including eight full-length projects, several Christmas releases, and a series of popular Singalong records that capture Wickham’s songs as they do what they were always meant to do — which is giving people language to sing to God.
