Martina McBride’s Joy Of Christmas Tour

Martina McBride Hits The Road For A 16-City Christmas Tour.

Martina McBride’s favorite time of year is Christmas, so this year she is doing it up big in more way than one! She will be sharing this magical time of the year with fans as she makes appearances in two TV specials, premiers a new music video, lends her voice to the Very Special Christmas album and performs on her 16-city The Joy of Christmas Tour.

The tour kicked off this past Friday in Atlanta, GA and will hit cities in Virginia, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Missouri and more! The final show will be December 21 in Chicago, IL. McBride will be backed by a 12 piece band, including a string section, to help blow the audiences socks off! There will be a duet with “The King,” local celebs reciting “The Grinch,” and a home video of the McBride’s on Christmas morning.

“My goal is to put everyone in the Christmas spirit by bringing every aspect of Christmas to life on stage,” said McBride during her tour rehearsal. “We perform everything from pop classics like ‘Let it Snow’ and ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ to the beautiful hymns such as ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ and ‘O Holy Night.’ One of the parts I’m most looking forward to is when I go into the audience to chat with fans. It’s spontaneous and fun, because you never know what’s going to happen! I love Christmas, and I’ve put together a show that is powerful and full of emotion, as well as fun for the whole family. I would love for this show to become a holiday tradition for everyone.”

McBride’s brand new music video for “Please Come Home For Christmas” was directed by Roman White and is expected to be released very soon! The song will be on the 25th anniversary of the A Very Special Christmas holiday series that benefits the Special Olympics.
