Hillsong UNITED are currently on the U.S. leg of their "WELCOMEZION" tour and have seen huge success so far surpassing 15,000 people in attendance at their last concert in the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
The Australian worship group has sold out shows throughout the country and so far has totaled up to 80,000 tickets sold.
"Our goal with the "WELCOMEZION" Tour was to take it to the next level," said Jason Strong of Hillsong UNITED. "We believe we have been given an opportunity, and we want to make sure we do the best we can with that. Ultimately, it is about using what you have the best you can to bring glory to our Savior and King. We are excited to be doing some pretty famous venues, but our goal remains the same; that He is made famous and everything we do brings people closer to God."
The summer tour has stopped at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore., ShoWare Center in Seattle, Sleep Train Pavillion in Concord, Calif., Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Isleta Amphitheater in Albuquerque, N.M., and Verizon Theatre in Dallas.
"Hollywood wasn't just a dream of ours, but a dream of many people to be there and to see such an iconic venue to be used for the glory of God and used for a night to worship God - and with the 15,000+ people there, you could definitely feel that!" said Matt Crocker of Hillsong UNITED on his experience at the Hollywood Bowl.

June 13 Red Rocks Denver, CO
June 15 Chesapeake Bay Energy Arena Oklahoma City, OK
