Re: What should we call the 2024 Petra Tour?

Call it a breath of fresh air- I just caught the show in Arlington and it was one of the best times I've had in years. I never thought I'd enjoy a Petra show with my kids- I had them late in life and the chances of seeing Petra live were looking pretty bleak. Such a fun time, great music, and loud. ...

New Whitecross!

Last Friday Whitecross dropped a brand new album- Rex Carroll without Scott Wenzel. WHAT? Petra is touring, Whitecross has a new album- is this 2024 or 1994?

I like the new album- I can't get enough of Rex Carroll electric licks and riffs. The video for Fear No Evil looks cheap and amateur, sadly.

Re: What's going on?

It's the year 2024 and Petra is on the road again putting on live shows- go to them! I'm going to meet up with executioner at the Arlington, TX show- March 30.

It's a double whammy for CCM fans. People mature spiritually, which can change preferences.
Maybe even triple whammy- people mature spiritually- and there isn't much in the way of nostalgia acts like with regular music.

Re: Who lives?

I've been locked out for a bit- and while I am excited that Petra is touring, part of me wished they were not doing Easter shows- guess I'll forsake the family traditions in order to see my band for what will likely be the last time. The Good Friday show includes dinner- likely unfriendly to those w...

Re: More concert dates

I've been surprised to see all the activity on Facebook surrounding this band and the reunion tour that is taking place over the summer. Where have all these fans been the last few years? I mean, there's barely been a blip of interest about Petra on social media for several years and all of a sudden...

Re: analysis: Why do we stop exploring new music as we get older?

It's a double whammy for CCM fans. People mature spiritually, which can change preferences. This statement tracks. I really used to like Newsboys but man, It's the same thing over and over. Like the songwriters are stuck in 4th grade. They had some growth right up until Going Public and Take me to ...

Re: More concert dates

To those of you able to see Petra Live and in concert I am jealous. It's been decades since I've been able to hear some of their songs, and anything after Unseen Power was just not in the cards. I encourage anyone with the ability to attend a Petra show to do just that....go!

Ted Kirkpatrick of Tourniquet

I'm not sure how many people are fans of the band Touniquet, but founding drummer and principal member Ted Kirkpatrick has died This was posted by his wife on facebook. I really enjoyed Tourniquet, they were heavy, but they were authentic creative and high quality. I was always happy that they never...

Re: RIP Carman Licciardello

You aren't alone. the school prayer argument sure is old and tired. Especially when you actually study history and learn about the terrible things that still took place when there was mandated publicly led prayer. The real reason I wasn't a fan is the song is pretty blah. and it is 100 percent Carma...

Re: New-to-You Music You've Been Discovering

I like the new Styx album. Really nice to hear new music from some talented musicians. Old music you might enjoy includes Poor Old Lu, especially the Sin album.

Carman, huh? Wow... I guess it never occurred to me that he was that old.
He told everyone he was cured of some disease. Kinda sounded like a fraudster near the end. Sad

Re: The Jesus Music movie trailer

It's a KLOV production. Don't expect much grit. In true Christian entertainment fashion , very little attention given to the true pioneers. Instead DC Talk is elevated in importance and Petra is minimized. Phil Keaggy and others barely mentioned. cCM music fans don't care for music that has aged, or...
