Today I did a great interview with Dave Frey, lead singer of the band Sidewalk Prophets. They are coming here to OKC on Thursday to kick off their Acoustic Christmas Tour with Sanctus Real and Dara Mclean. Check out the audio here –
I asked Dave about one of my favorites, the song Live Like That, and he explains a bit about “When you live like Jesus lived, that’s terrifying…But it’s also the most rewarding and beautiful thing you could do.” He says that Hebrew 12:1 that talks about that great cloud of witnesses around us was part of their inspiration for that song.
Concerning the tour, Dave said that some of their first shows were “on the sidewalks just playing acoustic,” so they are looking forward to getting back to that style for a while. While it’s a Christmas tour, they will still be throwing in some of their non-Christmas favorites.
It also should have a small group feel to it, sort of like sitting in someone’s living room. “We are just going to be hanging around people like if we were by the fireplace.”
Sidewalk Prophets will be traveling around the West on this tour for the next few weeks starting in OKC in Bethany First Church of the Nazarene on November 29, so grab some tickets if they are coming to your area! If you are in OKC and are going to the show, let me know! You can find out more and get tickets at http://www.acousticchristmastour.com/
