In most Toyota Arena gigs, it’s clear who is the headliner. At the Roadshow, it doesn’t matter.
The Roadshow is an evening of Christian music with a rotating lineup of artists. He has been traveling the country for a decade, frequently visiting the Ontario site.
Roadshow 2020 is touring 16 cities, and its visit to the Toyota Arena on March 19 is its only stop in Southern California.
The artists on the tour are award-winning songwriter Matt Maher; Martin Smith, who was the frontman of the Delirious duo ?; her daughter Elle Limebear; the pop-rock groups Unspoken and Apollo LTD; hip-hop artist Peabod; and musicians from the Bethel Music label.
“You’re going to be exhilarated with amazing music, but the point is that we can foster an environment and experience where you can meet God,” said Brandon Lake, one of the musicians for the Bethel Music label.
Lake called The Roadshow a night of worship “because it’s not just a show. The show is something you go to for entertainment. While you are entertained – we are having a good time – the goal is for you to walk away more like Jesus, or to come away encouraged and more filled with the word of God.
Roadshow 2020, however, has some elements of an arena concert, including $ 20 parking and a $ 99 VIP add-on that includes a meet and greet.
It is presented by Compassion LIVE, an offshoot of Compassion International, which works to lift children out of poverty.
The tour entertained nearly 1.5 million people and brought in around 40,000 child sponsorships, according to a press release.
Lake said playing in the middle of an arena on The Roadshow was an experience of humility.
“But it’s also exciting. I just think if there are 6,000 people here think about all the life changes that could take place.
