NI hymnwriters Keith & Kristyn Getty to begin their Sing! World Tour at Belfast’s SSE Arena

Updated: Jan 5, 2023

World-renowned hymnwriters Keith and Kristyn Getty have announced they will kickstart their Sing! World Tour at Belfast’s SSE Arena before shows in Singapore and Sydney.


The GRAMMY-nominated hymnwriters, who hail from Northern Ireland originally, will perform some of their best-known hymns including ‘In Christ Alone’ and ‘Christ Our Hope in Life and Death’ in their home city on Saturday 17 June 2023.


The Belfast show will feature an array of guest artists and the Getty’s band of internationally renowned musicians, all accompanied by the New Irish Arts Orchestra and a mass choir.


The concert marks the couple’s first performance in Northern Ireland since their GRAMMY nomination for their album Confessio – Irish American Roots in the Best Roots Gospel Album Category.


The album was penned and recorded on the North Coast of Ireland during the Covid-19 pandemic and has been described by the couple as their “love letter to Northern Ireland”.


The tour will then take the hymn-writing duo to the Star Theatre in Singapore followed by the Sydney Opera House in Australia.


Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 16 December and can be purchased via Ticketmaster or directly from the SSE Arena website.


Speaking ahead of the Sing! World Tour, Keith Getty OBE, said:


“It is always a tremendous honour to play in front of any audience, but there is something incredibly special about performing in front of a home crowd, especially following our GRAMMY nomination for an album dedicated to our home.”


“Kristyn and I are both extremely fortunate to be able to travel the world and share our music and passion for hymn-writing with amazing audiences, but Northern Ireland has a special place in our heart. It is where Kristyn and I met and where we return to with our four children each year, and so we are thrilled to kick off the Sing! World Tour at the SSE arena in Belfast.”


“We hope the concert will be a memorable evening where people can come together to sing their faith. As 2023 shapes up to be a great year for Kristyn and I, our return to Belfast is central to our excitement.”

Tickets bought before Friday 6 January will avail of a 15% ‘earlybird’ discount.
