Michael W. Smith Announces Extension Of Wildly Successful 35 Years Of Friends Tour

Michael W. Smith

Due to overwhelming demand, Awakening Events today announced the spring extension of the Michael W. Smith 35 Years Of Friends Tour.  The 17-city spring tour comes on the heels of a widely popular fall run that celebrated 14 sold out dates.  “The fans made it clear, they want more Michael W. Smith, and the momentum of finishing this fall with all 10 of the final 10 shows being sold out left no doubt that we needed to extend this tour,” said Curtis Pinkerton Director of Marketing at Awakening Events.

Tickets for the spring leg of the “35 Years Of Friends Tour” are on sale now. More information can be found at or

Smith says, “I am thrilled that we are taking the 35 Years Of Friends tour back on the road this spring. The fall tour was so much fun and such a great success, I can’t wait to do it again. Last year in Nashville, we had an event where 56 of my friends and fellow artists came together to celebrate my 35 #1’s and the 35th Anniversary of “FRIENDS.” It was an amazing night – and, for me, brought back memories of some songs I hadn’t thought of for quite a while! To fit all the songs into one night and be my own opening act is really special to me. From the old songs I haven’t done in concert for a long time, to newer hits and, of course Worship – – it’s a full night. I can’t wait to see you there!”

The 35 Years Of Friends Tour, exclusively produced by Awakening Events, in partnership with Altrua Healthshare and Food For the Hungry, will provide fans the opportunity to hear these hits and experience worship drawn from Smiths’ recordings and worship anthems from across his career including a live performance of “Friends”.   As Smith was designing this unique show, unlike any tour he has embarked on before, it was decided that he would be his own “opening act,” to spend as much time with the crowd as he could.
