Celebrating their ten-year anniversary as a band, the acoustic tour, which is sponsored by World Vision, promises to be an intimate experience where concertgoers will take a journey through the band’s history and hear numerous stories behind many of their biggest songs such as “The Words I Would Say,” “Come to The Table,” “Live Like That” and more. Ticketholders will also be the first to hear new music from the band.

Dave Frey, lead vocalist for Sidewalk Prophets, shares the band's excitement about the upcoming tour, “In our experience the best tours have always been the acoustic ones and I can tell you right now that this one is going to be super special! When you take away all the bells and whistles from a big production show, what remains are the essentials: music, stories and friendship. Those are some of the best things in life, and we can’t wait to share them with the audience on this tour. Oh yeah, and we’re playing our first new music in four years—that will be great, too!”
