NEWSBOYS CAN'T WAIT togetonthe road H again.

The Christian pop-rock band has been touring state fairs and festivals all summer, and they're headed back out again. They'll play Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Ralston Arena.

"It's been an incredible ride," drummer Duncan Phillips told The World-Herald.

Several years ago, Newsboys' original singer left and was replace by DC Talk's Michael Tait. It's been a huge period for Newsboys, whose three albums since have been major hits.

"We didn't have a crystal ball," he said. "The great thing with Michael is that, more than anything, he's a great mate."

Right now, the band is in the middle of making a new album full of traditional hymns. It will come out in November.

"Why not try something different and reintroduce to our fans some of those old hymns?" Phillips said. "We get ahold of it and turn it into Newsboys."

Tickets, $21, are available at the arena or at
