Martina McBride will celebrate the holiday season with her annual Joy of Christmas Tour, a “variety show extravaganza” that includes holiday favorites, Martina’s signature hits and more. The tour will kick off November 29 in Huntington, West Virginia and make 12 stops, wrapping in Chicago on December 21.
“This tour is something I look forward to all year,” Martina said. “It’s definitely a show for the whole family and we love performing it. It helps get me in the Christmas spirit each year and I know it does that for the audience too.”
A distinguished member of each community the tour visits will take the stage during the show to read How The Grinch Stole Christmas as Martina sings “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Special guests last year included former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, Green Bay Packer Jordy Nelson, Pittsburgh Steeler Brett Keisel, Storme Warren and hockey great Jim Dowd. The tour will also invite local ballerinas to dance at each concert and feature a Q&A session with the crowd.
Martina will release a new album early next year. For tour dates and ticket information, visit www.martinamcbride.com.
