Martina McBride Announces 2017 Christmas Tour
Hang up the stockings and cue the holiday music, because Martina McBride is going on a Christmas tour! The Joy of Christmas Tour will kick off on Nov. 24 in Biloxi, Miss., and run through Dec. 22, wrapping in Roanoke, Va. Tickets for McBride's 16-city tour go on sale Aug. 25.
“The Joy of Christmas is a magical show full of beautiful scenery and classic beloved Christmas music as well as a few hits from my career. It's a show for the whole family,” McBride says in a press release. “With this tour we create a sort of Christmas winter wonderland. If this show doesn't leave you full of the Christmas spirit I'm not sure what will!”
In addition to a new tour, this year McBride celebrates 25 years in country music. She credits her fans with her career's longevity.
"I think it comes down to the fans. If they hadn’t been interested, I wouldn’t have had a 25-year career," she admits. "I have great fans and I think I was really lucky to find great songs and songs that made a difference in people’s lives. Songs like 'Independence Day,' 'Concrete Angel' and 'A Broken Wing' and even 'This One’s for the Girls.' When you create something that people take ownership in and bring into their lives and attach meaning to, that’s big."
McBride continues to think of the fans with the announcement of her Christmas tour. Complete cities and dates for her upcoming tour are below.
