Multi-Platinum, three-time Grammy® Award winning artist, best-selling author and acclaimed actor Michael W. Smith will bring his “Surrounded By A Million Lights World Tour,” presented by Compassion International and featuring special guest Nathan Tasker, to the Adler Theatre on Friday, March 16.

While on tour, Michael will perform fan favorites from his extensive repertoire along with “A Million Lights,” “Surrounded (Fight My Battles)” and more new music from two, all new full-length albums releasing back-to-back in February from Rocketown Records and The Fuel Music: both his USA Today and Yahoo! Music-acclaimed studio album A Million Lights (Feb. 16) and the live worship album Surrounded (Feb. 23).

“Until the world ends, music is the most powerful language there is,” says Michael. “It can transform your life on every level, not just the spiritual. It can help people reconnect with why they’re here.” In many ways, Michael is a statesman, at the fulcrum of Christian music in pivotal moments. It is said that the heart of a lion never goes away, and Michael isn’t content staying with the equilibrium. At a loss for what his voice should be toward the end of 2016, this prolific artist comes roaring back with A Million Lights and Surrounded albums in a counter cultural response to the divisive national sentiment of 2017 and the mean-spirited banter on social media.
