THE E.R.A.C.E. FOUNDATION PRESENTS THE 1998 E.R.A.C.E. TOUR
WITH DC TALK & GOD’S PROPERTY

 

April 21, 1998 — Nashville, Tenn. — Multiple award-winning groups dc Talk and God’s Property have joined forces in an effort to promote racial unity, hitting the road this summer for the 1998 E.R.A.C.E. Tour. Featuring additional performances by Out of Eden, The Katinas, Grits and comedian John Gray, the tour will make a total of 13 stops at major festivals from June through August.

The E.R.A.C.E. Tour is the national kickoff for The E.R.A.C.E. Foundation, a non-profit organization formed by dc Talk members Toby McKeehan, Michael Tait and Kevin Max, along with dc Talk manager Dan Pitts and Gotee Records President Joey Elwood. The foundation was formed in 1997 with the intent of promoting racial reconciliation, targeting primarily a youth-oriented audience.

The 1998 E.R.A.C.E. Tour marks the first time in two years that dc Talk will appear before the summer festival crowds, and it is the very first foray into the festival market for God’s Property. The two groups came together through multiple discussions between dc Talk members and gospel music trendsetter Kirk Franklin, who produced God’s Property and brought the group to national attention.

Proceeds from The E.R.A.C.E. Tour will go toward the purchase of a building that will house a school for gang members in Long Beach, California. The facility will also serve as a daycare and job placement center, and will provide a permanent location for Bible studies and church services.

The 1998 E.R.A.C.E. Tour dates are as follows: Atlanta Fest/Atlanta, GA (6/18); Carowinds/Charlotte, NC (6/19); Alive Festival/Canal Fulton, OH (6/20); Great Lakes Festival/Ionia, MI (6/26); Creation Festival/Mt. Union, PA (6/27); Sonshine/Wilmar, MN (7/9); Spirit Song/King’s Island, OH (6/11); King’s Fest/King’s Dominion, VA (7/17); Statue of Liberty Park/Jersey City, NJ (7/18); Creation Northwest/George, WA (7/25); Spirit West Coast/Monterey, CA (8/1); World Fest/Wheaton, IL (8/7); and Douglas County Fair/Omaha, NE (8/8).
