Burnett, Downey take music of 'The Bible' on the road
By CHRIS TALBOTT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s “The Bible” franchise continues to grow in unexpected ways. Up next? A 16-city music tour featuring some of today’s most popular Christian acts.
The tour begins in March following the nationwide theatrical release of “The Bible” companion film “Son of God,” and will feature music inspired by and visual components from the movie and miniseries.
“I think that music just has such a wonderful ability to connect and open your heart and the images from our film certainly are going to touch your heart,” Downey said. “So, I think it’s just going to be a really beautiful, heartfelt experience all around for people to attend.”
The five-part History miniseries was one of the surprise hits of 2013, averaging 11 million viewers for each episode last spring in the U.S. Burnett and Downey have been rolling it out overseas as well — it’s playing in Hong Kong now and the United Kingdom is up next.
