unforgettable signature style. The
holiday event will be a true celebration of cheer and joy that has captivated
the community. Taylor’s tour will spread
the holiday spirit to over 40,000 fans in the month of December throughout the
tri-state region, and Indiana is fortunate yet another year with his return.
“Our first three
years in Indiana have been just unbelievable, and we are so excited to be coming
back,” said Taylor. “We had an
incredible response when we came to Indiana for the first time in 2012, and
we’ve been blessed to grow the crowd a little bit each year. The sound in the KCAC is unreal, and the glow
sticks and the energy from the crowd is something we hope to replicate and
take to even higher level this year.”
Patrons will be in for
a real treat again this year with a pre-concert program starring area high
school all-star chorus groups that will kick off the celebration at
6:45 p.m. Mark Bertig, vice president
