PILLAR OF FIRE Christian AC WAWZ (STAR 99.1)/NEW YORK CITY hosted the "UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS TOUR" featuring CASTING CROWNS, KUTLESS and CALEB at THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER on FEBRUARY 20th. The show was a sell-out three times as the maximum number of tickets available started at 8,000, increased to 9,000 and ended at 10,907 in attendance.
Radio station winners had lunch with PROVIDENT LABEL GROUP and CASTING CROWNS earlier in the day at THE RIVER CAFE in BROOKLYN, NY. Listeners also had the chance to win front row tickets or the show with the "SHOW US YOUR STAR" contest. WAWZ did a live broadcast from THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER before the concert and hosted the "CASTING CROWNS CONCERT AFTER THE CONCERT" on the air after the show.
“There is nothing like being in a room with 10,000 other followers of Christ, raising their hands and praising God. STAR 99.1 was blessed to be in the room," said WAWZ Dir. of Programming/Morning Show Host JOHNNY STONE.
