Witness the Musical Collaboration of Paul Thorn & Blind Boys of Alabama

The 2018 Levitt National Tour will feature acclaimed Southern raconteur Paul Thorn and his five-piece band as he teams up with five-time Grammy-winning gospel legends, Blind Boys of Alabama, for a one-of-a-kind musical collaboration. Billed as the “Mission Temple Fireworks Revival,” the unprecedented co-headlined Levitt National Tour was inspired by Paul Thorn’s 2018 album Don’t Let The Devil Ride, a celebration of the first music Paul ever experienced, journeying through classic gospel, soul and spirituals, and featuring contributions from Blind Boys of Alabama among other artists. Levitt audiences across the country will experience these exhilarating, soulful shows blending old-school gospel with rock, blues and country.

Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, while speaking universal truths.

Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. Celebrated by the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences with Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy Awards, they have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans almost 80 years.

Levitt National Tour audiences are in for an electrifying evening of gospel meets blues meets rock!
