David Crowder will take the stage performing with his new collective, simply called, Crowder (formerly known as The David Crowder*Band). Fans can expect more of what they've always loved about David Crowder through the years - the songs, the worship, musical innovation - and now they get to be a part of the new beginning. Named among the "most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music" by The New York Times, the popular yet unconventional David Crowder*Band unveiled their final collection of new music this year with the release of Give Us Rest or (a requiem mass in c [the happiest of all keys]). As the follow-up to the GRAMMY ® nominated Church Music, Give Us Rest gave the band the highest debut of their career selling over 50,0000 units in one week, landing them in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Top 200. David Crowder Band's music video for "SMS (Shine)" nabbed coverage on NBC's The Today Show, Fox & Friends, USA Today, Billboard and Paste Magazine online as well as a GMA Dove Award win for "Short Form Video of the Year." The video was also recognized at the LA Film Festival in 2011. Along with the group's 9 GMA Dove Awards and 22 nominations, the band was the first Christian artist to be named MSN.com's Artist of the Year in 2006. David Crowder is part of the Passion Movement, participating in university student gatherings in the U.S. and around the world.

Capitol recording artists/songwriters Ryan Johns, McKenna Johns, Kyrsten Johns, and Luke Johns are the young escape from Southern California. The band has always had a love for upbeat, exciting live concerts, which is why they try to craft high-energy sets that inspire people to get out of their comfort zone, and to break free from the currents of culture. Ranging from 20 to 14 years old, the young escape hopes that their EDM/Alt-Pop/Rock music inspires people to escape from whatever is holding them down, and to dream like they’re young again.

The Viking Pavilion—a LEED Gold regional event center accommodating up to 3,400 guests—is slated to open on April 2, making the Crowder - American Prodigal Tour one of the venue’s first signature events.
