Kutless Nashville, TN (August 27, 2008) – Creation Festival: The Tour, the blockbuster event of the Fall, is pleased to announce the dates and cities for its one-of-a-kind traveling experience. Kicking off October 9 in Cincinnati, OH, the tour will make stops in 30-plus cities across the Northeast, Midwest and South and will include an element of local outreach in each city. Tickets go on sale nationwide today through

Patterned after the Creation Festivals, the nation’s largest Christian music festival and the premier name in Christian music events, this “mini Creation on wheels” will be headlined by BEC Recordings band, Kutless, with special guests, Thousand Foot Krutch and Pillar. The line up is rounded out by female-fronted rockers, Fireflight, Run Kid Run and Integrity’s Worth Dying For providing a time of praise and worship. KJ-52 will also perform and serve as MC for the night. World-renowned speaker, Bob Lenz, will share the gospel each night, with Pastor Harry Thomas, Creation Festival director and co-founder and Teen Mania’s founder, Ron Luce, also joining the tour on select dates. A special “pre-show” will kick off the event, featuring performances by Esterlyn and Capital Lights.

“I think Christian rock needs this tour”, explains Rob Beckley, frontman for Pillar. “It is a great effort from Creation to have the guts to put this together. Christian rock needs the tour; one, for the strength of the line up and two, because this generation needs the masses to come together and be encouraged every night through music and leave stronger than they came in. Pillar is excited to be a part of the tour, and I’m excited to see the other bands!”

The goal of Creation Festival: The Tour is to not only provide an exciting evening of great music, but also present an opportunity to impact the local community through outreach. Each city will partner with a local ministry, such as a food bank or clothing drop and attendees are asked to bring a can of food, thick socks or a warm blanket to donate to the cause. Details for the outreach for each date can be found online at

"The center purpose and mission of what we do at the Creation Festivals and now thru this tour is to give ‘Tribute to our Creator,’” says Nick Kulb, executive producer of the Tour. “That simple founding principal from 30 years ago is still in the forefront of our operations and is proving the test of time. This tour is extremely ministry and community active - we are looking forward to seeing thousands of lives changed as they accept Christ in the nightly alter call - we've teamed up with Compassion International and we've also launched the ‘It Starts With You’ campaign. This tour is so much more than the artists performing nightly; collectively, each of the bands and speakers are heading out on a united front with the Good News of Christ Jesus and to see lives radically changed for Him."

About Creation Festivals:
Celebrating 30 years, the Creation Festival was founded in 1979 in Pennsylvania and has since grown to become the largest event of its kind, adding a second event in 1998 on the west coast, held at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA. In 2005, Creation branched out once again, this time internationally. Friendship Fest, held just outside the beautiful gardens and sold walls of Marrakech, the cultural capital of the Kingdom of Morocco, has been a huge success with more than 80,000 fans gathering for this truly historical event in a Muslim country. Tens of thousands of people attend the Creation Festivals from all across the United States and Canada, as well as many international countries, including Iceland, Switzerland, and France. The Festival has also been featured by many mainstream media outlets including CBS News’ “Sunday Morning”, VH1, CNN, FOX News, Details Magazine, The New York Times, and GQ Magazine to name a few. In April 2004, the Creation Festival was awarded the Gospel Music Association’s “Lifetime Achievement Award”, an honor that recognizes major contributions to the gospel music industry through a company’s commitment to the Christian community for 20 or more years. The festival has been recognized twice in CCM Magazine’s annual “Readers Choice Awards” as “Favorite Festival”. In 2008, the 30+ city Creation Festival: The Tour was launched to allow fans across the country to experience a taste of the annual 4-day events held in June and July in one night of music, teaching and fun.
