Bebo Norman Wraps 2003 European Tour

Bebo Norman recently wrapped his second tour through Europe, visiting venues in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Altogether, Norman played for an estimated 24,000 fans, packing out shows in 10 cities.
Less than a week after his performance at the 34th Annual Dove Awards, Norman ventured oversees to entertain audiences abroad. Kicking off in Milton Keynes, England with a day of national Christian and secular media interviews, the tour traveled west to Minehead for the first of three shows at Spring Harvest, a three week bible conference.
Maintaining an intense schedule, Norman then drove seven hours to Skegness, on England’s east coast, for an appearance at the convention’s second location. In total, the singer-songwriter attracted 800 people to each concert as well as 21,000 to evening worship events.
Norman also received an enthusiastic welcome at The Acoustic CafĂ© in Edinburgh, Scotland, taking the stage before a crowded house. “We really had a good time playing in the UK,” Norman comments. “But a stand out in my mind was the show in Scotland. It was just one of those nights when you leave knowing something special happened. The spirit of Scotland and its people is extraordinary.”
>From Scotland, Norman flew to Northern Ireland, again drawing sold-out crowds to Portstewart’s Exodus Nightbase and Derryvolgie Hall, a Presbyterian university located in Belfast. During his stay, he also visited BBC Radio Ulster as a guest on the live music program “Rhythm and Soul,” while making time for sightseeing at Giants Causeway.
The tour returned to England for its final dates in Farnham and Bromsgrove, wrapping up with a performance at the Authentic Media Sales conference in Carlisle.
Bebo Norman will appear at select events this summer before launching a headlining tour in the fall. Myself When I Am Real, Norman’s 2002 release, continues to garner wide acclaim; the record’s second single, “Falling Down,” made its way to No. 6 this week on Radio & Records’ Christian Hits radio Top 30 chart.
Bebo Norman’s popularity continues to grow steadily as a result of the success of his critically acclaimed projects, Ten Thousand Days (1999), Big Blue Sky (2001) and Myself When I Am Real (2002). The latter title landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart its debut week, spawned the hit radio single “Great Light of the World” and earned the singer-songwriter eight 2003 Dove Award nominations. Norman maintains a loyal fan base built by years of consistent touring, initially as an independent artist and later as a nationally signed artist to Essential Records.
