Atlanta rock band Third Day recently packed
out their hometown arena making the Atlanta date the largest event in Third Day’s career history with over 15,000 people in attendance. Their performance at HiFi Buys Amphitheater (formerly Lakewood Amphitheater), Saturday, March
31, was a near sell out and continues the bands record breaking sales history with the Offerings tour at 19 sellouts to date.
House Of Blues Concerts, Inc. making Third Day’s concert the first Christian event promoted by the company at HiFi Buys Amphitheater provided promotions for the Atlanta show. Other sponsors for the concert included Atlanta’s
WFSH-FM 104.7 “The FISH,” and the Ingles grocery store chain.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the positive response Third Day received
from their Atlanta fan base.
The overwhelming support the band received from their fans was demonstrated not only in ticket sales, but also by the
continuous cheers and applause the band received throughout their show. We also want to thank WFSH-FM and Ingles in their support of the Third Day concert and helping us make it a huge success. We’re ready to do it all again!” Clay Schell, general manager, HiFi Buys Amphitheater said.
According to Creative Trust, Inc. the bands’ management company, the show exceeded expectations.
“Standing backstage at the Third Day concert in Atlanta I decided to go checkout the crowd. I walked up the hill to the back of the Amphitheater and when I turned and saw the sea of 15,000 people that was spread out before me, tears came to my eyes. My mind raced back in time to that first time I saw
Third Day perform seven years ago. It was a small club “The Strand” in the same town with maybe 200 people in the room. The guys in Third Day have worked hard and stayed true to the music as well as the ministry. It was a magical moment for me, and a magical night for Third Day,” Jeff Gregg, Third
Day’s agent at CAA said.
In addition, the hometown crowd provided the perfect setting for a live
DVD/VHS filming of the performance. Third Day’s first ever concert video,
highlighting the Atlanta show, will be available for pre-orders on April 15.
With career sales of over 1.6 million, Third Day’s current project, Offerings – A Worship Album – holds the year 2000 title for the longest running No. 1
project from any artist or group as reported by SoundScan on the Top
Christian Albums chart. The recording also helped the members of Third Day
receive nine Dove Award nominations, leading this year’s nominees, and a
Grammy Award nomination for best Rock Gospel Album. The bands Offerings
tour is Third Day’s most successful tour ever, selling out virtually every
market to date.
As the Atlanta rock band Third Day prepared to perform for more than
11,000 fans in its hometown, the band’s current recording, Offerings – A Worship Album, remained No. 1
for the fourth consecutive week on the SoundScan compiled Rock sales chart. Perhaps more notably, Third Day
has now helped over 6,000 needy children through its sponsorship with World Vision. Seeing larger crowds at
its concerts, the band is also seeing more and more fans respond to its message of hope for children across
the world through World Vision sponsorships.
A leading spokesband representing the ministry of World Vision, Third Day has supported the organization for
three years. “Third Day does a phenomenal job of representing World Vision,” notes Kris Thompson, World
Vision director of artist associates program. “Their efforts on stage on behalf of the children have helped
thousands in need. Through the efforts of Third Day on its tour this year and last fall, 1300 kids have
already received sponsors.”
