McBride Plans Holiday Tour

Martina McBride will be able to do her holiday shopping in several cities when she hits the road in late November. The Joy of Christmas tour will be a multi-media theatrical event aimed at the entire family. McBride says, “I was inspired by the Christmas productions put on at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. We go every year and just love it.” The tour will include 10 actors who will play multiple roles to provide live action vignettes, including a nativity scene. The two-hour program will feature carols and additional music from McBride’s White Christmas album released in 1998. The tour kicks off Nov. 26 in Philadelphia and continues through Dec. 22 in St. Paul, Minn. Tour stops include Chicago, Nashville, Louisville, Birmingham and Milwaukee. Additional dates will be announced in the near future. 10/4/02
