OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
Christian Rock Band P.O.D. to Make 2009 Concert Debut in September at
Disney's Night of Joy
Disney newbie joins MercyMe, newsboys, Flyleaf, Skillet, Jars of Clay, Chris Tomlin among 14 acts playing Disneys Hollywood Studios Sept. 11-12
BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Feb. 25, 2009) Multi-platinum Christian rock
band P.O.D., currently on hiatus following a lengthy world tour, will
make its 2009 concert debut as part of a 14-act lineup announced today
for Disneys Night of Joy Sept. 11-12 at Walt Disney World Resort.
The musically diverse event at Disneys Hollywood Studios theme
park also will feature MercyMe, newsboys, Skillet, Flyleaf, Chris Tomlin,
Kutless, Jars of Clay, Grits, Leeland, NEEDTOBREATHE, Superchick, Mandisa
and Family Force 5.
Seven acts will perform each evening between 7 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. at stage locations throughout the park. Night of Joy begins after regular park operating hours, with concerts and select park attractions available exclusively for the enjoyment of event ticket holders.
P.O.D. is among four acts new to Night of Joy (along with Grits, NEEDTOBREATHE and Family Force 5), joining a legacy of 134 Christian music acts that have played Night of Joy since 1983. While a Disney newbie, the southern California-based band that fuses hard rock with hip-hop, reggae and Latin music is well known in music circles. Theyve been a hit on MTV, won two GMA Dove Awards, been Grammy-nominated, had two platinum-certified albums one triple platinum and in past summers played some of the norths biggest Christian festivals.
But in spring/summer 2009, P.O.D. is chillin: Vocalist Sonny Sandoval and the rest of the band are home in SoCal enjoying family life following a seven-month world tour that wound up in South America in December, making their Sept. 11 date at Disney P.O.D.s first gig of the year.
the past year weve been blessed to play all around the globe but
performing at Disney World excites me most of all," Sandoval said.
The complete Sept. 11 Night of Joy lineup: P.O.D., newsboys, Kutless, Tomlin, NEEDTOBREATHE, Leeland and Superchick.
On Sept. 12, the Studios' stages will present: Skillet, MercyMe, Jars of Clay, Flyleaf, Family Force 5, Grits and Mandisa.
Eight of the acts are nominated for Gospel Music Association Dove Awards in 2009, topped by Tomlin with seven nominations including artist of the year. Other nominees are Kutless, Leeland, NEEDTOBREATHE, Skillet, MercyMe, Mandisa and Grits.
