for King & Country: burn the ships world tour: North America: 2020 Encore

The for King & Country show scheduled for May 8th has been rescheduled to June 21st. If you have tickets for the 5/8 show, they will transfer to the 6/21 show. Can't make it June 21? You will receive a refund via your buying method, Ticketmaster.com or our Box Office, when we reopen 6/10.

Popular Contemporary Christian music artist for King & County had barely wrapped-up its 36-city fall concert series, when fans started flooding the popular duo with requests to keep traveling in the spring. So, by popular demand, for King & Country is adding the Salem Civic Center to its burn the ships world tour.

Joel and Luke Smallbone first played Salem in 2014 when they opened for Laura Story and Casting Crowns. Since then, the brothers have won two Grammy Awards and earned high praise for their immense talent and elaborate stage shows. They have garnered four Number 1 singles, nine Top 10 hits, and their songs have been featured on the Emmys, the Super Bowl, Sunday Night Football, Today, The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The just-announced performances on this tour will showcase their most theatrical and inspirational concert experience to date. In all, 14 shows have been added to the spring tour and the duo promises it will take the stage at the top of each concert and play more music than ever before, including every song off the “Burn The Ships” album and all of the past favorites. Plus, in honor of “Burn The Ships” – the stage and lighting design is conceptually inspired by the bow of a ship, spanning the length of the arena floor to make it their most elaborate and intimate production yet.

Straight No Chaser "The Open Bar Tour" - NEW DATE

Straight No Chaser - The Open Bar Tour

NEW DATE - MARCH 31, 2021

If you have already purchased tickets to an event, they will transfer over to the new date. If the new date does not work for you, you will receive a refund at your point of purchase, either Ticketmaster.com or the Salem Civic Center Box Office, when the building reopens after June 10th. 

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses... think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense... and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
