The St. Albans venue is part of the band’s 'Battle for your Soul' Tour which began in October with 12 concerts in California and will include more than 190 dates over the space of the next three years throughout UK, Europe and the USA. Tickets are first come, first served on the night for £5 at the door.
The concerts in the tour are open to all ages. The band’s following is predominantly youth/student age but there is something for everyone. The band is unashamedly upfront about their faith and they want you to know about it, according to Superhero’s lead vocalist Tim Cheshire.
"This tour has been a while in the planning and a lifetime in the heart. We are passionate about our music and our message. We tour a lot and have played over 100 dates a year over the past six years or so, but this tour is the thing we are most excited about at the moment. It will be loud and proud and the message will be clear: ‘There's a battle for your soul and we are coming with a message to win some,’" said Cheshire.
The St. Albans concert will also include tour support act Haydon Spenceley and US based emergent youth speaker Tom Miyashiro.
Superhero is also partnering on tour with Compassion UK and expects to see many needy children from around the world sponsored during the course of the tour. Opportunities for sponsorship will be provided at the concert.
The band’s newest member, bass guitarist Greg Taplin, hails from Welwyn Garden City and joined the band last December.
