Dave Koz is set to hit the road next month and has announced an extensive coast to coast summer tour featuring GRAMMY-winning Gospel recording artistr BeBe Winans!
The two musicians will perform a span of their hits together on stage for what they’ve unofficially declared as ‘The Brothers From Another Mother’ tour, plus promise a few surprises along the way!
The longtime friends have teamed up together before in the past, with Winans singing the lead vocals on one of Koz’s biggest hits “The Dance” from the 1999 album of the same name, but have never been billed together on a tour.
“BeBe and I have been friends for 20 years, but this is the first time we’ve toured together and I’m so excited,” says Koz. “We’ve unofficially dubbed it ‘The Brothers From Another Mother’ tour because superficially we couldn’t be more different, but we actually have so much in common.”
Winans, who’s album of patriotic songs titled America America is due out this June, stated, “I’ve said no for years to touring, but this time seems right because of what we bring together to the stage.”
He added, “the love people will feel from the concerts is real, and hopefully the audience will take it home with them.”
Tickets for Dave Koz’s summer tour featuring BeBe Winans are on sale now on davekoz.com.
