It was a sold-out crowd at the Centennial Concert Hall Wednesday evening.
After three years of waiting, For King & Country brought their 'What Are We Waiting For?' tour to Winnipeg.
The Smallbone brothers were originally supposed to come through Winnipeg on their 'Burn The Ships' Canadian tour in the spring of 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic quickly halted that tour, leading to a three-year delay.
Fans who attended say it was worth the wait.
"The show was ELECTRIC! There were tears, laughs, dancing, praising, and so much singing." said one fan. "Luke and Joel mentioned how Manitobans waited over 1,000 days for them to come and thanked everyone for waiting. It was by far one of the best shows I’ve ever been to."
"Absolutely marvellous concert. Well worth the wait. Hopefully, we don't have to wait so long for the next show," said another fan.
For King & Country thanked Winnipeg fans for helping them kick off their Canadian tour with a sold-out crowd. Tickets for the rest of their shows on this tour have also sold out.
For King & Country's next stop is Saskatoon this evening. From there, they will head to Edmonton for three shows. They will wrap up their 'What Are We Waiting For?' tour in Vancouver on May 31.
