Fans will have the rare opportunity to determine the band’s set list in real time for each date, ensuring every show is completely unique. Although each concert will broadcast to a different city and a different set of fans each night, Sidewalk Prophets will perform every show live from their warehouse in Nashville. Named for the band’s current single, “The Chosen Tour” follows the unprecedented success of Sidewalk Prophets’ first live stream concert run, “The Virtual Album Experience,” which took their latest album, The Things That Got Us Here, directly to more than 25,000 viewers in 32 cities. They include Toledo on 10/18, Little Hocking on 10/25 and Columbus on 10/28! Find out more at sidewalkprophets.com

We’re running out the darkness,
Chasing down the dead of night,
We’re bringing hope to the streets,
There’s a new way…a better life.
The song? We Are Messengers with ‘Power.’ Congratulations to Michelle from Mount Vernon, who wins the $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!
