Wayne Watson in Concert

April 19 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

For the first time, Dove award-winning, singer/songwriter, guitarist and recording artist Wayne Watson is coming to the Music Factory!

Tickets are $35.00 in advance and $40.00 at the door. Seating is general admission and doors open at 6:30 PM. Concessions will be available for sale during the concert.

The Music Factory is located on the 2nd floor of the WWI era Old Milk Factory on the Rum River in Anoka. It is not a wheelchair accessible building and there are some stairs to climb.

To date, Wayne has produced 23, #1 singles on Christian radio, including the most played song on Christian radio in 1991. Recently, Wayne was inducted into The Christian Music Hall of Fame.Though many accolades have piled up over the years, the one thing that remains constant is Wayne’s untarnished love for music. He helped define the genre of contemporary Christian music, but he has not limited himself to the genre he helped create. Wayne loves to write and score orchestral numbers, patriotic productions, and lately, country and southern blues sounds seem to dominate his newest album.

Wayne’s life-long love affair with music and worship have been chronicled within a library of songs contained on more than two dozen album projects since his memorable breakthrough album Working In The Final Hour caught the imagination of an entire generation of Christian music listeners and radio.

Friend Of A Wounded Heart, When God’s People Pray, Almighty, Be In Her Eyes, Watercolour Ponies, More Of You, Another Time, Another Place, and Home Free are just a handful of recognizable titles that still resonate with old and new fans alike.
His litany of career credits include a dozen Dove Awards wins, including those for Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of The Year (Friend Of A Wounded Heart), Pop Contemporary Song of the Year and Contemporary Album of The Year with Watercolour Ponies, and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year with Home Free. He has twice been nominated for the Grammy Award-both for his performance of Watercolour Ponies, and for Best Pop Gospel Album with his stunning A Beautiful Place project. He shared a Grammy victory as a part of the team of other Christian artists for the “Tribute to Andraé Crouch” project.

Today, Wayne is excited to be back on the road touring again and has indicated that there will be new music coming out. “I still play and I still write, almost every day. I am having fun, and I appreciate the opportunities more.” Watson was nominated as a finalist for The Gospel Music Hall of Hall of Fame in 2017, and released Simple Life that same year. The project is full of new material and some refreshed treatments of Wayne Watson favorites.
