Open Air

We got last minute permission to play an open air concert in Prague. We love to praise in the high places! Located at the Prague Castle and overlooking the city of Prague, the Worshiplanet band set up.  Carrie & Manu will had the time off since there was no electricity. 

A big thanks to Klara, the bands violinist and long time friend of the Tedders, for getting the permit.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Before the RESTORE tour - Mark, Carrie, & Mike got in their first live practice with a full band. While our tour bass player, vocalist, violinist, and poet were missing, local friends stepped forward to fill in the gap. Don McCaleb, a bassist from Colorado Springs, and Kristin Wood a local worship leader, made our sound complete. On May 14th, this same Colorado based band will hosed a home concert which included the new pieces of spoken worship and all of Mark's original songs.

Special Guest in Lincoln

We had a special guest for the UK concert date on Friday, May 21st.

Guitarist and Lincoln native, Martin Clark, played acoustic on the RESTORE CD/DVD. We worshiped alongside Martin at Woodmen Valley Chapel when he visited Colorado Springs last year.  It was a great delight to have him accompany us for the UK portion of the tour. Thanks Martin!
