NikWallenda-webBringing one of the world’s biggest tours to Atlanta’s Georgia Dome for the first time, NewSong's Winter Jam Tour Spectacular announces yet another first: a daring stunt by famed high-wire artist Nik Wallenda. A seven-time Guinness World Record holder who crossed the Grand Canyon on a tightrope without a safety harness last year, Wallenda is slated to walk untethered across a high wire suspended in the Georgia Dome during the Feb. 8 event.

The Winter Jam 2014 Dome Spectacular—which debuts at the Georgia Dome after playing to capacity crowds at Atlanta's Philips Arena for multiple years—will feature special guest appearances from 19-year-old Duck Dynasty star Reed Robertson and GRAMMY-nominated, multi-Dove Award-winner David Crowder. The two join University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt, who will also appear alongside Winter Jam’s star-studded lineup.

Winter Jam is headlined by GRAMMY-nominated rockers Newsboys and GRAMMY-winning rap/hip-hop recording artist Lecrae. This year's tour also features Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch, Plumb, NewSong and Colton Dixon, as well as a message from national evangelist Nick Hall. In addition, the iDisciple App Pre-Jam Party features Love & The Outcome, Everfound and Derek Minor.

The Dome Spectacular is highlighted by the inaugural “JAM ZONE presented by KIA.” The free eight-hour expo-style event will be held in the World Congress Center. Showcasing a live performance stage, zip line, chainsaw carving, rock climbing wall, inflatable games for kids and more than 85 booths of local businesses and exhibitors. The zone will also allow fans to interact with the tour’s artists at the Winter Jam autograph booth.

Last year’s Winter Jam Tour Spectacular topped Pollstar’s Worldwide First Quarter Ticket Sales Charts—Top 100 Tours, the third consecutive time the annual tour has done so. Since creating Winter Jam in 1995, GRAMMY-nominated NewSong hosts and continues to oversee the exponential growth of the tour.

Promoted by Premier Productions and presented by Holt International, NewSong’s Winter Jam 2014 Tour Spectacular will hit 48 cities, before concluding March 30.
