Zion also debuted at No.1 on the Australian ARIA Albums chart making this album an international hit.

In June, Hillsong UNITED will debut their USA summer tour, "WELCOMEZION." 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 all dates are currently on sale here.
