Acoustic live tour is SaturdayNeed to Breathe on stage at Wagner Noël

Their cross-country tour has sold out for this acoustic run as Grammy-nominated rock band Need to Breathe adds a third leg to their Acoustic Live Tour.
That tour lands in Midland on Saturday with a 7 p.m. show at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $35 to $75.
The new dates, which feature Nashville singer-songwriter Trent Dabbs, extend the band’s trek in support of their first-ever acoustic live album, Acoustic Live Vol. 1, their website,, details.
Leg Three of the Acoustic Live Tour kicked off April 30 in Roanoke, Virginia, taking the band through an extensive tour of the Northeast U.S., Canada, and wraps up in Fort Worth.
“We’re blown away by the fan response to the ‘Acoustic Live Tour’ thus far and thrilled to be adding more dates across the U.S. this Spring. We’re especially glad to be returning to Canada for a few shows… playing our acoustic show there for the first time ever,” Bear Rinehart said via the website.
Acoustic Live Vol. 1 was self-recorded last year across the band’s first-ever fully acoustic tour and features commentary between tracks. One of the numerous standout moments featured on the record include the band’s retelling of their first meeting with friends Drew and Ellie Holcomb, followed by a surprise appearance by the duo at a sold-out performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
The 12 song collection was produced solely by Need to Breathe and mixed/mastered by the band’s own Seth Bolt (backing vocals, bass) at his Plantation Studios in Charleston, S.C.
Acoustic Live Vol. 1 represents over a decade of music from five of the band’s six studio albums and is a compilation of some of the group’s greatest hits prior to entering the studio to record their seventh studio effort.
The Dallas Observer at reviewed the group in October saying the band gets played on plenty of Christian radio stations, they are signed with the secular Atlantic Records and have said they turned down Christian labels to not limit themselves. In fact, they are constantly releasing songs without any mention of their religious beliefs even if their Christian songs seem to gain more popularity.
The review said the band proved they were a rock band with their show in Irving.
