NASHVILLE, TENN - 04 April 2013 - On the heels of their most successful Billboard 200 debut, Hillsong UNITED announces their USA summer tour, "WELCOMEZION." Supporting their recent international release, Zion, UNITED will be appearing at 12 venues across the nation including the famed Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and the beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. Tickets for four dates will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, April 5. The remainder of the tickets will be on sale on Friday, April 12. Click here to purchase tickets. See the complete list of dates and cities below.

The Australian-based UNITED has a long history of sold-out shows in the United States. The touring entity of UNITED has made a huge wave in the States as they became the first Christian artist to ever sell out Los Angeles' Staples Center. In addition to the Staples Center, UNITED has also sold out major venues in Seattle (ShoWare Center), New York (Hammerstein Ballroom), Atlanta (Gwinnett Center), Miami (BankUnited Center), Dallas (Music Hall) and two back-to-back sold out events in Boston (Orpheum Theatre). UNITED also holds the record for largest attendance ever in the Sears Centre Arena (Chicago, IL), outdrawing concerts there by such legendary performers as Billy Joel, Elton John and the Eagles. Since 2006, UNITED has toured six continents and 42 nations.

After a two-year wait for the next original UNITED project, the band released the widely acclaimed studio project, Zion, which earned the international worship band its highest ever Billboard 200 debut at No. 5 . During street week, the 12th full-length album and third studio recording from UNITED peaked as the No. 1 album overall on iTunes in the United States, South Africa, Sweden, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Singapore, Ghana and Columbia in addition to reaching the Top 5 at iTunes in Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Switzerland, Uganda and Ecuador. Zion also debuted at No.1 on the Australian ARIA Albums chart making this album an international hit.

"Everything we do as UNITED, from writing and recording these songs, to playing them in front of people and all the production, is an expression of a really extraordinary God doing what only He can do through really ordinary people who love Him and want to serve Him," frontman Joel Houston explains.

To label the new album as a fresh sound is to understate the originality that is Zion. It is noticeably different from past projects, yet it retains the indisputable feel of the band that has brought some of the world's most popular praise and worship songs to the Church. The result is a collection of songs that takes the listener to the core of passionate and uncluttered worship, where intensity intersects with intimacy.
