NASHVILLE, TN...September 3, 2010...Coming off the successful release of his new worship project, BEC Recordings’ artist Jeremy Camp announces his fall headline tour: “The Worship Tour” featuring Integrity worship artists’ Carlos Whittaker and John Mark McMillan. The tour will kick off with a special Nashville-edition concert on October 8th concluding on October 31st in Salem, IL (see below for the tour schedule).
"I am so excited about this new season the Lord has me in right now,” shares Jeremy Camp. “Putting this album out last week and then taking it out on the road with Carlos and John Mark is something I am looking forward to in a huge way! The unity of all of our hearts for worship will make for an amazing evening of praise to our Lord and Saviour"
The Worship Tour is also featuring local church leaders exclusive Q&A sessions. These sessions, “Conversations from the Red Chair” presented by Integrity Live, will be an open conversation with Jeremy Camp, Carlos Whittaker, and John Mark McMillan to encourage and fellowship with local church leaders before the show. For the registered price of $25 (limited number of tickets at each date), each church leader will receive entrance to the Conversations Pre-Show, one premium-seat ticket to the concert and a church leader gift bag including song sheets and chord charts.

The kick-off event is taking place in Jeremy’s home base in Nashville, TN on October 8th at Allen Arena at Lipscomb University. This concert is a free event for the area and specially titled “Jeremy Camp’s Come Celebrate Nashville.” This will be an evening of music from Camp and special guests as well as community outreach that he hopes becomes an annual event. Honoring Nashville, the show will be benefiting two local organizations: Second Harvest Food Bank and Warm Coats from Warm Hearts. Concert attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods and/or winter coats.

JOHN MARK MCMILLAN
Critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter John Mark McMillan is known for his unconventional approach to worship music. Writer of the popular anthem "How He Loves," McMillan's lyrical imagery is set against what critics have called "spiritually-minded indie rock." Before signing with Integrity Music, the North Carolina native had already built a faithful following. Now with the major label release of his much-lauded CD The Medicine, that fan base continues to grow among Christian, worship and indie/alt rock fans.
