March 18, 2011

Matthew West will perform at Dordt College on Saturday, March 26, as part of “The Story of Your Life” tour. His 7 p.m. show will be held in the B.J. Haan Auditorium. Advanced general admission tickets are $18 and can be purchased at area Christian book stores including True Vine in Sioux Center,, and by calling (712) 722-6349.

The evening’s concert is sure to be a moving experience as West brings to life the very stories that inspired the songs on The Story of Your Life album. “What I want is to invite the audience, every single night, to embark on the journey of discovering the power in all of our stories and realizing that their life is a story worth telling,” adds West. The shared songs and stories will be from his latest album inspired by 10,000 stories he received from every state in the U.S. and 20 countries internationally.

“No one can capture the true nature of the human experience as Matthew West did on his project The Story of Your Life,” explains John Huie, Creative Artists Agency agent. “He captured the soul of the very issues that he came face to face with during his time in the cabin writing this album. And this tour brings all of that to life. The journey that Matthew takes people on during the concert connects at a deeper level than your normal concert experience and is changing lives in each city he visits.”

The show’s opener is singer and songwriter Josh Wilson, whose album See You debuted in February.
