DETROIT, January 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — After a two-year hiatus, the incomparable, soul-stirring Festival of Praise is set to kick off its fifth nationwide tour in March 2022. The 30-city tour will be headlined by Gospel music icon Fred Hammond, along with Gospel superstars Marvin Sapp and Hezekiah Walker. Tickets will be available for purchase via Ticketmaster and other outlets where concert tickets are now on sale.

Produced by Face to Face, Inc. and booked exclusively by Jeff Epstein and Adam Zagor of Universal Attractions Agency (UAA), the renowned Festival of Praise Tour follows in the footsteps of 1997’s The Tour of Life, which saw Hammond sharing the stage with Kirk Franklin and Yolanda Adams in front of crowds of more than half a million people. Festival of Praise Tour once again promises to be an unforgettable “Hand clapping and foot stomping, get up out your seat” worship explosion with production and stage sets unmatched in any gospel tour.  For the first time in Gospel music history, 2022’s Festival Of Praise will offer a talented local choir in each city of the tour the opportunity to perform on the show.
