Winter Jam’s Third Consecutive Sell Out



The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular packed the Ford Center with thousands of fans on Thursday night for their third sold-out show in Evansville—and more kept coming. Fans of the popular Christian pop rock event began lining up at entrances around 10:30 a.m. for the 7 p.m. concert in hopes of watching performances by acts like Newsboys, Lecrae, Thousand Foot Krutch, Colton Dixon, Tenth Avenue North, speaker Nick Hall and more. For those that did not get seats, several of the bands rotated out to a second stage in the main lobby to play short sets for the fans there.

Eric Kilby, Winter Jam tour manager, said, “We love coming to Evansville and playing at the Ford Center. We’ve had sold-out shows here every year and turned-away crowds.” He later added, “I’ve heard all of the bands saying that the energy in the room tonight was amazing, and they don’t normally say that.”

The Ford Center continues to stay active with a wide variety of upcoming events, including Florida Georgia Line February 14, the 38th Annual World Championship Ice Racing Series February 21, Brit Floyd March 10, and Lady Antebellum April 10.
