Saturday To-Do: Newsboys

Posted By on Fri, Mar 14, 2008 at 4:27 PM


7 p.m., Alltel Arena. $26.75-$31.75.

Years ago, in my youth, I attended the “Christian rock Woodstock” in rural Kentucky. All I remember is hearing a Christian rap group goad the crowd with “Go Jesus! Go Jesus! Go!” and seeing the Newsboys' drummer play upside down as he and his rig were rotated in a wheel-like contraption. He never missed a beat. Along with seeing one of the New Kids spin on his head for 30 seconds at Barton, it was the best stage-show stunt I've ever seen. On Saturday, an older, slicker and more popular version of the Newsboys comes to Alltel. Last year, the group released “Go,” a polished album filled with nods to Euro-dance sounds and synth pop and subtle, but pointed lyrics of evangelism. Popular new Christian rockers Rush of Fools open along with newworldson and Article One.
