|Petra Farewell to release Nov. 22
26 September 2005
To celebrate 33 years of music and ministry from the pioneering Christian rock band Petra, Inpop Records will release PETRA FAREWELL on Nov. 22. PETRA FAREWELL, a CD filmed before a live audience, will feature Petra classics, emerging worship favorites, and guest appearances by former band members. The band, which has impacted generations of musicians and fans alike over the years with seven million CDs sold, four Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards and an induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, will tour extensively this fall before disbanding at the year’s end. The live recording of the farewell concert is set for Oct. 4 at the W in Franklin, Tennessee. The show will be taped for a later DVD release.
PETRA, initially formed in 1972 by Hartman on vocals and guitars, paved the way for the rock genre perhaps more than any other in the Christian music industry. The band is closing 2005 strong with over 20 albums to its credit, the latest being the 2003 Grammy-nominated Jekyll & Hyde.
