Unprecedented Gospel Show “Kirk Franklin Presents Tye Tribbett” to Tour House of Blues Entertainment Venues Nationally

LOS ANGELESMay 30, 2014 — Grammy-Award winning star and Gospel music icon Kirk Franklin is collaborating with House of Blues Entertainment and its venues across the United States to create a new national gospel tour, “Kirk Franklin Presents Tye Tribbett” debuting in July.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, May 31.

Often heralded at “The Elvis of Gospel,” Tribbett’s high energy, powerful, and infectious music have helped redefine gospel music, and earned him two number one albums, two stellar Awards and three Grammy nominations.  His explosive summer 2013 release, Greater Than That  claimed the number one spot on Billboard’s Top Gospel Chart.

“This is a great chance to share the gift of a spectacular talent like Tye with gospel fans throughout the country in a fresh new show that is unlike any production we’ve ever seen,” said Franklin.  “It will be a special experience.”

For nearly two decades, Franklin has been a multi-platinum-selling pioneer in gap-bridging musicianship, uniting audiences across gospel, hip hop, pop and R&B. Last year he joined forces with House of Blues to create a new Gospel brunch experience as part of its year-long 20th Anniversary Celebration.

Tribbett, whose musical features and collaborations include Faith HillJustin Timberlake, Sting, Mary J. Blige,John Mellencamp, The Roots and others said, “I’m excited to have this chance to perform in such unique venues that will allow the audience to be closer to the performances than virtually anywhere else possible.

“We’re putting together a show that will take gospel to another new place.”

Franklin will be picking a special support guest for each date.
