Nashville, TN (August 26, 2009) - Creation Festival: The Tour hits the road for a second time this fall and is pleased to announce the dates and cities for its one-of-a-kind traveling experience.  Kicking off September 14 in Music City USA, Nashville, TN, the tour will make stops in 30-plus cities across the nation and will include an element of local outreach in each city.  Tickets for many of the dates are currently on-sale through iTickets.com.

Patterned after the Creation Festivals, the nation's largest Christian music festival and the premier name in Christian music events, this "mini Creation on wheels" will be headlined by the multi-Platinum and three time Grammy Award-winning band, Jars of Clay, along with rock-sensation, Thousand Foot Krutch.  Audio Unplugged, featuring Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss from the Grammy Award-winning rock band, Audio Adrenaline, are also a part of the tour, performing their record-breaking classics and sharing stories from the heart.  The star-studded line up is rounded out by the new soulful pop sensation on Gotee Records, B. Reith, Forefront Recording artist, This Beautiful Republic, and highly anticipated pop-punk band, FM Static.  Pastor Harry Thomas, Creation Festival director and co-founder, will also join the tour on many dates.


Mark Stuart exclaims "Creation has always been an excellent experience for us and we can't wait for this tour to kick off!  Will and I are pumped to share our music and stories on stage with some of our favorite artists.  We're definitely looking forward to seeing fans of `Audio A' from the past and making new friends as we take the stage as
Audio Unplugged." 

Creation Festival: The Tour sets out to not only provide an exciting evening of great music and ministry, but also to provide attendees with something no other tour can provide.  iTunes has teamed up with Creation Festival: The Tour to give away an exclusive tour branded iTunes card featuring a special collection of 20 free songs.  Every person attending the tour will receive the card absolutely free.  Creation will also provide a pre-tour sampler, available to every visitor to www.creationfesttour.com.  Details on the website promotion and launch date will be released in the days ahead. 

Nick Kulb, producer of Creation Festival: The Tour states "We have aligned ourselves with proper partners and promoters to ensure each attendee gets a tremendous amount of entertainment for one low price.  Our teaming up with iTunes to provide each person with a plethora of free music is a small, yet valuable incentive, and will ensure that families from all over the nation receive one great night of music, ministry, and fun." Additional elements, ministry opportunities and highlights will be added to the tour, with many announcements forthcoming.

About Creation Festivals, LLC
Celebrating 31 years, the Creation Festival was founded in 1979 in Pennsylvania and has since grown to become the largest event of its kind.  Creation added a second event in 1998 on the west coast, held at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA.  In 2005, Creation branched out internationally with Friendship Fest, held just outside the beautiful gardens and sold walls of Marrakech, the cultural capital of the Kingdom of Morocco.  It has been a huge success with more than 80,000 fans gathering for this truly historical event in a Muslim country.  Tens of thousands of people attend the Creation Festivals from all across the United States and Canada, as well as many international countries, including Iceland, Switzerland, and France.  The Festival has also been featured by many mainstream media outlets including CBS News' "Sunday Morning", VH1, CNN, FOX News, Details Magazine, The New York Times, and GQ Magazine to name a few.  In April 2004, the Creation Festival was awarded the Gospel Music Association's "Lifetime Achievement Award", an honor that recognizes major contributions to the gospel music industry through a company's commitment to the Christian community for 20 or more years.  The festival has been recognized three times in CCM Magazine's annual "Readers Choice Awards" as "Favorite Festival".  2008 marked the most recent expansion for Creation, with the launch of their touring divisions.  Creation Festival: The Tour and Creation Festival: The Worship Tour are two annual tours, developed to allow fans across the country to experience a taste of the annual festivals, in intimate and local settings.
