Hillsong United swept through the U.S. during a three week 12-city tour this summer named "Welcome Zion" where they worshipped with over 80,000 people, their most ever.
They performed crowd favorites such as "From The Inside Out," "With Everything" as well as their latest studio album, Zion.
Hillsong United sold out shows in Phoenix (Grand Canyon University Arena), Dallas (Verizon Theatre) Denver (Red Rocks) and Chicago (Sears Centre Arena), where at least 7,000 people where in attendance every night. Their biggest performance was in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl where 15,000 fans came out.
"We remain amazed at the response from our latest tour in the U.S. and how many came out to worship our Lord and Savior with us," said Hillsong United member Joel Houston in a press release. "We were excited to have performed at some pretty famous venues -- but our goal remained the same -- that He is made famous, and that everything we do brings people closer to God. Of course, we also had some fun along the way."
