Multi-platinum-selling and award-winning Christian music powerhouse Hillsong UNITED have released, The People Tour: Live from Madison Square Garden, their live full- length album recoded at the famed venue. The new release arrives with the accompanying concert film on Amazon Prime, free to stream for Prime members, making it among the few full-concert experience offerings for home viewers since the start of the global pandemic.
The People Tour: Live from Madison Square Garden album and concert experience arrive during unprecedented times, where touring has been forced on an indefinite recess. The album and concert visual seek to offer fans a live Hillsong UNITED concert experience from the comfort and safety of their homes. Recorded during their 2019 “The People Tour,” the 23-track release allows for an immersive listening experience from one of the most iconic music venues in the world, Madison Square Garden.
“Playing at MSG is a pipe dream no one really expects to become a reality. Even now, the fact that we had the opportunity to play such an iconic venue gives me chills. But this night was about way more than just a venue, and its significance lies in what it stands for – and why we have always done what we do,” says Jonathon Douglass, of Hillsong UNITED. “We are simply a group of people who have always trusted in God, and poured our lives into creating an opportunity for others to experience who Jesus is and the grace He makes available for ALL. We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to capture what took place on that night at MSG. I don’t say this lightly, it was a night we will never forget and a night are so excited to now get to share with the world. We believe it will inspire and encourage you wherever you find yourself right now.”
