TobyMac breaks attendance record at AESC
Christian rapper TobyMac broke a single-night attendance record on Friday for the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC).
His sold-out Hits Deep Tour had an attendance of 7,098, according to AESC general manager Jason Blumenfeld of Global Spectrum, which operates the centre.
The AESC's previous attendance record was held by country music artist Eric Church for his show in January 2013, when 6,826 people attended.
“With 2014 being the fifth anniversary of the (AESC), we couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the year,” Blumenfeld said. “TobyMac delivered a fantastic performance and thrilled the audience all night."
In addition to TobyMac, the evening featured performances by Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Matthew West, Matt Maher and Capital Kings.
TobyMac's tour now heads south for dates in Washington, Oregon and Arizona before finishing with a March 2 show in San Jose, Calif.
