dc Talk reschedules postponed Oct. tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–The Christian music trio DC Talk has rescheduled a tour that was postponed in October, when member Kevin Max requested time off for personal reasons.

The tour now kicks off on Jan. 19 just outside of Washington, in Fairfax, Va. So far, the dates stretch through April 21. dc Talk is hitting venues that vary in size from small theaters to outdoor sheds.

dc Talk: Solo the Tour will feature material by the band and its members’ individual projects. Each of the three–Toby McKeehan, Michael Tait and Max (born Kevin Smith)–released solo efforts this year. “Empty” (Chordant), by the band Tait, hit stores July 3, while Max offered “Stereotype Be” (Chordant) Aug. 28. McKeehan released “Momentum (Chordant)” in November under the name tobyMac.
The tour was derailed when Max “requested that he be given this time at home to work on personal matters,” according to a message posted on DC Talk’s official website.

“I believe I have needed this time away from touring and the business for quite some time,” he said in the message. “The process of being an island unto myself and the author of my own desires took the place of my most prized relationships. I have come to realize that my character is more important than my career as a performer.”

DC Talk has returned to the studio to work on a new album, tentatively called “Let’s Roll,” in honor of Todd Beamer, the 32-year-old businessman believed to be one of the passengers who tried to overcome the terrorists on United Airlines flight 93, the aircraft that crashed in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11. Beamer was last heard via air phone saying “Let’s roll.”
