This month Christian rock band Third Day is stopping in Spokane as part of their 20-city “Lead Us Back!” tour.
The Georgia-based band released its first album more than 20 years ago. With their new album, “Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship,” they hit on some familiar praise sounds from their two decade career. This is their 12th studio album and their first one fully dedicated to worship music.
Third Day will be traveling to the INB Performing Arts Center with contemporary Christian artists Brandon Heath and Warren Barfield.
The performance will be at 7 p.m. on Oct. 17. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased online.
