We had a really great weekend. It takes a few days to settle in to tour, to the rhythm of travel, to remembering how to play your songs, to develop relationships within the group. But this weekend, we really found our groove. I hope you get to see this tour because it’s already one of my favorite tours I’ve ever done. It’s really intimate, but still quality. And Jason just has wonderful songs. You really need to hear them.
We started the weekend in Lombard, IL, which is a suburb of Chicago. I’d love to say the highlight was our show, but… we talked our driver into taking us to Portillo’s to get hot dogs. Awesome! But the night was good as well. I tried something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while, and used my whole first set to look at the concept of heaven. How that hope affects our lives here. I don’t know if anyone else liked it, but I enjoyed trying it. Then we headed to Salt Lake City for a great show. We had a great Q&A beforehand that kind of altered the approach to the show. It was a very intimate, almost confidential show, although it was the biggest show of the tour so far. Then we were on to Phoenix, playing at Grand Canyon University. It was my first time to play in a bowling alley. But again the vibe of the show was really cool. I took a different approach again and let my whole first set be corporate worship. It really set the stage for the rest of the night. I must admit being a little distracted because the Longhorns were playing WV on the TV in the bowling alley. Oh well. We finished up the weekend in Midway NM, which is right outside of Roswell. You may be asking yourself, “I wonder if Jason Gray talked everyone into going to the UFO museum?” And you would be correct. Pictures can be found on Jason’s instagram account. But it was a cool show too. Really relaxed and a lot of fun. I really love the guys we’re traveling with and I think that’s obvious from the stage.
Anyway, thanks to all who joined us this weekend. Hope to see the rest of you soon. Check the tour page to see if we’re coming near you.
