“I am so excited to announce the ‘My Story Your Glory tour,'” states Matthew West. “This will be unlike any concert I’ve done before with a concept I’ve been dreaming up since the day I began writing the songs for this double album. The first album, My Story, is all about telling the stories of our lives. The second album, Your Glory, is my first-ever worship album. I’m excited to bring both to the stage as well as all the songs from the radio, and I can’t wait to worship with all of you in spring 2023!”
West will take his upcoming double album, My Story Your Glory, on the road for the first time and perform new music along with old favorites. The first part of this new project, “My Story,” embodies the countless stories fans have shared with the songwriter over the years and the importance of keeping God at the forefront of our everyday lives. Part two, “Your Glory,” is the first full set of vertical, worship songs that Matthew has written for one of his records.
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Matthew many times over the years, and have always admired his work and his love for Christian music,” shares Curtis Pinkerton Director of Marketing for Awakening Events. “The ‘My Story Your Glory’ tour is going to have a lasting impact on everyone who experiences it this spring. We can’t wait to help Matthew bring it to life.”
