Thousands Flock to Tupelo for ‘Winter Jam’

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — It was a full house at Tupelo’s Bancorpsouth Arena, Thursday, for what is billed as the largest Christian music tour.

More than 9,000 people, some from 2 or 3 hours away, attended Winter Jam 2014. For $10, audience members enjoyed ten different Christian music acts. This year’s line up included acts such as Colton Dixon, Plumb, Thousand Foot Krutch, Newsong, Lecrae and the Newsboys.

Some audience members began lining up Thursday morning for seats to the event.

Winter Jam is one of the best attended shows annually at the Bancorpsouth Arena. Now, arena staffers will get the venue ready for Monster Jam, that runs Friday and Saturday.
