Sidewalk Prophets, along with Instruments of Joy, is excited to announce their Great Big Family Reunion event at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium on July 4, 2022, making good on the promise of a free show before the release of their last album, The Things That Got Us Here, in 2020, as the event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To thank their fans, who claimed all tickets for the original show in 2020 within six hours of release, for all the love and support over the years, the event will be free. The Great Big Family Reunion will also be the band’s first ever fan destination event, hosting Sidewalk Prophets’ biggest fans from across the country. Tickets will be released through AXS starting 5/13—all tickets are non-transferrable and require a photo ID. HERE
Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey shares, “We’ve been waiting a long time for this moment. It’s a time to appreciate the fans for all that they’ve done for us over the years, and of course we might throw in surprises too. We can’t wait to share this experience with everyone!”
Fans can expect to hear music from the band’s entire catalog, including their most recent release, The Things That Got Us Here. Following the show, fans can enjoy Nashville’s Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th fireworks, set to be the largest fireworks show in the city’s history. Title sponsor Instruments of Joy, a Christian-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will be collecting instruments at the show to donate to impoverished communities. Fans are encouraged to bring a gently used, high quality instrument to the Instruments of Joy donation center on site. In addition, financial contributions of $200 or more will purchase an instrument for a musician in need and $20 will purchase a gig bag. Donations can be made at the concert or on their website at www.instrumentsofjoy.org.
