KACS 90.5 FM Sunday Concert
Petra - KACS Sunday Concert
Over their illustrious 40-year career, Petra has released 24 albums, garnering four Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards and numerous #1 radio hits. As the pioneers of Contemporary Christian Music and Christian Rock, Petra paved the way for countless artists, helping to create a whole new genre of rock music along the way.

Now, after the completion of a successful two-year reunion of the band's mid-80s line-up (as Classic Petra), Petra founding member Bob Hartman and long-time vocalist John Schlitt (joined by Greg Bailey on bass and drummer/percussionist Cristian Borneo) have re-united to celebrate Petra's 40th Anniversary.

“This tour is an amazing opportunity to bring Petra’s music to audiences that may not have ever heard of us,” states frontman John Schlitt. “Bob (Hartman) and I welcome the opportunity to perform before a whole new crowd and are very excited about going out together again.”

For live dates in the band's traditional market, Petra is opening up its touring schedule in association with include Christian venue bookings in the North America and Europe as well, with Petra being joined by very special guests! The 40th Anniversary Tour is coming to the KACS-KACW Family Concert at the Thurston County Fair on Sunday, August 4th, 2013. No concert ticket is required, but gate admission to the fare will be charged.

“Petra always has been first and foremost a Christian rock band,” reflects Schlitt. “There’s no doubt about where we stand or where our focus is. We want to be available to play wherever we’re needed - be it secular or Christian,” declares Schlitt. In addition to reuniting with Petra, Schlitt continues touring with his own band and as a soloist in support of his 2012 release, The Greater Cause. “I’m very blessed to have the best of both worlds,” says Schlitt. “I’m able to tour with some of the best musicians - in my band and in Petra. It’s a unique situation and I’m looking forward to playing with all the guys!” Bob Hartman, founder of the group continues to write music and give the band leadership. Hartman is also a renowned custom guitar builder. His instruments continue to be sought out by some of the best guitarists.
