HIGH POINT, N.C. – April 18, 2011 – Premier Productions posted its busiest 1st quarter in the history of the company. The company wrapped up its 16th successful Winter Jam Tour Spectacular in April with more than 500,000 participants over the course of three months and nearly 50 venues. The company also promoted 12 concerts for Hillsong United’s Aftermath tour, selling out 10 locations including the famed Los Angeles Staples Center – a first for any Christian event.

“It has been a whirlwind three months,” said co-owner Roy Morgan, “and it’s not slowing down. We are heading into another busy summertime season with Premier Festivals, as well as an additional 60-70 concert events in the Fall.”
The successful quarter also got a big boost from the first three dates of the ever-popular Gaither Homecoming Tour, not to mention several other concert events and artists.

“We are honored and humbled to be a part of promoting these fantastic artists, who proclaim the name of Jesus and work for His honor and His glory,” said Gary Gentry, co-owner of Premier.
All of the events – exclusively Christian concerts and events – have catapulted Premier Productions to No. 3 in attendance in the world for all promoters, both secular and Christian included, according to POLLSTAR, which recently released its first quarterly figures for 2011. For more than 25 years, the Fresno-CA.-based POLLSTAR has provided the most reliable and accurate information on the music industry, including ticket sales, attendance records, trade news, and concert tour schedules.

Premier has promoted and produced more than 2,200 events since its inception in 1996, reaching over 8 million people during that time.
“It is mind-boggling what the Lord is doing,” said Shane Quick, who joined Premier as part owner and vice president of the concert division a few years ago. “We are all about making Jesus known and bringing glory to His name.”
