Two of Christian music’s most recognized and beloved artists, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, reunite for the first time in more than two decades for a landmark concert tour coming to the Embassy Theatre for a performance on November 17 at 8:00 p.m sponsered by STAR 88.3. Both artists will perform music from their vast catalog of fan favorites along with selections from their current albums: Grant’s Somewhere Down The Road, and Smith’s brand new project, Wonder.

Combined, the two have won nine Grammy® Awards and sold more than 47 million albums. They first toured together in 1982 when Grant’s Age to Age album was exploding up the Christian music charts, thanks to hits like “El Shaddai” and “Sing Your Praise To The Lord.” Smith performed as Grant’s keyboard player and opening act, supporting his debut release, Project, which generated instant classics like “Great Is The Lord” and “Friends.”
They continued touring on and off the rest of that decade, and have collaborated musically over the years.
“I’ve always said I wouldn't be where I am without Amy Grant,” Smith says. “When Amy hired me to play keyboards for her, I never could have anticipated where it would take me. This many years later, to get to tour together again is just awesome. When I think about set lists and what we might do together, the question isn’t, ‘Where do we start?’ The question is, ‘Where do we stop?’ This will be a fun night with a lot of great memories.”
“That first decade we toured together was really pretty amazing,” Grant adds. “There’s a nostalgia element that comes with having worked with someone solidly for so long and I’m ecstatic about hitting the road with Michael again. We will share the stage and participate in each other’s sets. But no kidding, I will have just as much fun sitting on the side of the stage and watching him. It will be like old times.”
Tickets for the 2 Friends Tour are priced from $37.50 to $67.50, and may be purchased at the Embassy Theatre Box Office or online here.
