Preview: NEEDTOBREATHE and friends at Red Butte

NEEDTOBREATHE (all caps, much to this editor’s chagrin) will breathe some Christian-rock tunes into Red Butte Garden on Tuesday night with their TOUR DE COMPADRES (again with the caps, guys? Seriously?) tour. And, if you don’t have tickets to the remaining three shows at Red Butte, this is your last chance before the official end of summer—the day Red Butte closes its doors for the year—because it’s the only show for which tickets are still available.

NEEDTOBREATHE (ugh) will be joined on the 53-city tour by friends and fellow Christian-rockers (compadres, get it?)  Mat Kearney, John Mark McMillan and Welshy Arms. And in a move that can only be described as marketing genius, the entire tour is sponsored by… wait for it… Cracker Barrel. Plus, in a clear sign of knowing your audience, TOUR DE COMPADRES (this isn’t even cute anymore, guys) will wrap-up at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University—the birthplace of many Republican presidential campaigns and an accredited university at which creationism is taught as a biology course.


Tickets are still available here. Doors open at 5:30. The show starts at 6:30.
