Tour Kicks Off Feb. 21st With American Idols
Colton Dixon and Singer-Songwriter Josh Wilson As Special Guests

(Nashville, Tenn.) Nov. 2, 2012 Four-time GRAMMY Award-winning band Third Day will hit the road again this spring to headline "The Miracle Tour," a 45-city trek featuring American Idol finalist Colton Dixon and singer-songwriter Josh Wilson as special guests. The Miracle Tour will launch Feb. 21, in Fairfax, Va., and will hit major markets like Memphis, Dallas, Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, Indianapolis, Grand Rapids, Chicago and many more before wrapping up in mid-May.

The Miracle Tour takes its name from Third Days brand new studio project, Miracle, releasing Nov. 6. With veteran producer Brendan OBrien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Train, The Killers) at the helm, Miracle is a 12-track simmering brew of potent rock anthems infused with the substantive, life-affirming lyrics that have always been the bedrock of Third Days music. At the same time, the band explores new sonic and lyrical territory on Miracle, with layered guitars and harmonies, sing-along gang vocals, and so on not heard from the band previously. The bands signature rock foundations remain; theyve just been infused with a modern-day flair.

We have toured for so many years and feel like we owe any success we have to the fans that built Third Day, says drummer David Carr. These songs are engaging musically and lyrically; we worked hard to stretch ourselves for the people who come to our shows and buy our music. We poured so much into this record because we wanted to bring our fans our very best. We are proud of Miracle and cant wait for people to hear it.

A special VIP package will be available for "The Miracle Tour" ticket buyers, including a premium-seat concert ticket, an exclusive Third Day tour poster, a Miracle CD and entry to a special pre-show event. A group ticket package will be offered, along with Fan Club pre-sale dates.
