After nearly a month’s worth of sold-out concerts in South Africa, Kenya, Holland,
Scotland, England, and Switzerland, WaterShed/Essential recording artist Bebo Norman returned to the U.S. for a 60-city tour. A new venture altogether, the domestic tour will differ from Norman’s foreign travels, which took him from
Nairobi to Switzerland.
Kicking off in South Africa, Norman performed at a chapel service hosted by St. Mary’s school for girls in addition to playing two
live concerts in Durban and Pietermaritzburg alongside popular South African band “Peculiar People.” From South Africa,
Norman traveled to Kenya where he drew a crowd of close to 2000 people to the world-famous Carnivore club. There he
entertained local missionaries and their children as well as recent college graduates.
Bebo held his own at Holland’s Flevo Festival, the largest Christian festival in Europe hosting over 15,000 attendees, appearing on
the main stage between two pop/rock bands. He performed at other popular European festivals including the Edinburgh Festival in
Scotland, a secular event that attracted 700 people to his show, the Greenbelt Festival in England, and the first annual Montmirail
Festival in Switzerland.
With one world tour under his belt, Norman plans to take the people and experiences of this summer’s travels with him on his
journey across the United States: “The concerts were great, but I most enjoyed spending time with people from cultures so different
than my own,” Norman commented. “Even though I traveled half way around the world, I felt a great sense of community wherever
I went. I hope to maintain that sense of community and build on that spirit at every show on this tour.”
