Classic PETRA Revival is performing live at the TLCA. Band members include: Kirk Henderson, Greg Bailey, Greg X Volz, Louie Weaver, and John Lawry. This show is so big, it had to be scheduled for two nights!
Petra was the first Christian rock band inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The first Christian band whose memorabilia was featured in the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant chain.
Formed in 1972, Petra took its name from the Greek word for “rock”. Though it disbanded formally in 1993, incarnations have played reunion concerts in the years since and released an album in November 2010.
In 2018 after nearly a 25-year separation to pursue other avenues of ministry, the band is back and stronger than ever! With a style initially similar to The Eagles and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Petra’s sound evolved into a more energetic,driving rock sound in the early 1980’s similar to Foreigner, Styx, and Journey.
Throughout the 80’s and into the early 90’s, Petra was one of the world’s most popular Christian rock bands while they sold out arenas and regularly placed songs at the top of Christian radio charts.
