Having just completed his fall tour a month ago, Chris Tomlin hits the road again Dec. 2 for a three-week Christmas tour in some of the country's most beautiful and historic theaters. Among them: the Tivoli Theatre, his second tour stop on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

"Chris Tomlin Christmas: Christmas Songs of Worship" lets the singer-songwriter perform some of his favorite Christmas songs along with music from his new EP "Christmas Songs of Worship," released Nov. 15. The EP is Tomlin's first new Christmas music since 2015's "Adore."

"This is going to be an incredible night, an intimate night of remembering what the season is all about, remembering what Christmas is about, remembering why we celebrate and why we worship, and remembering our Savior together," said Tomlin in a news release.
