Grab Your Friends to Celebrate the Iconic Song, Friends, with Michael W. Smith This Weekend

Gospel Music Hall-of-Famer and multi-platinum Grammy-winner Michael W. Smith is bringing his all-new tour to San Antonio! Michael W. Smith: 35 Years of Friends celebrates 35 years of his groundbreaking, iconic song “Friends.” Check it out at Empire Theater this Saturday, October 19th!

With over 45 Dove Awards, three Grammy awards, and an American Music Award to his name, Michael W. Smith has forever enshrined his mark in the music history books. 2018 marked the 35th Anniversary of Smith’s Top 10 single “Friends,” which helped introduce his music to secular and non-secular audiences.

During 35 Years of Friends: Celebrating The Music of Michael W. Smith, music lovers will experience over 35 artists, from all genres, performing a setlist to include many of Smith’s 35 #1 hit singles. As Smith was designing this unique show, unlike any tour he has embarked on before, it was decided that he would be his own “opening act,” to spend as much time with the crowd as he could.

The 35 Years of Friends Tour is exclusively produced by Awakening Events and will provide fans the opportunity to hear hits and experience worship drawn from Smiths’ recordings and worship anthems from across his career including a live performance of “Friends.”

The Charline McCombs Empire Theatre was built in 1913 on the site of the former Rische's Opera House in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The Empire is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is operated by ATG North America as a self-sustaining performing arts facility, and is home to a wide variety of programming including intimate musical concerts, comedy attractions, children's theatre; and private uses including banquets, seminars, product launches, and weddings.

Enjoy an uplifting evening with Michael W. Smith and other acts during 35 Years of Friends!
Tickets to Michael W. Smith: 35 Years of Friends start at $42.25. You may purchase yours online at www1.ticketmaster.com or in person at the Theatre Box Office.
