Kirk Franklin Readies For Tour

With his "Nu Nation Project" in stores, Kirk Franklin is getting ready to hit the road after the holidays for an extensive U.S. tour.

Franklin will get things rolling the day after Christmas, and will stay on the road through mid-April. As we reported earlier this year, Franklin brought several special guests into his new jack gospel mix on this album, including R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, and U2's Bono (see "Bono, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige To 'Lean On' Kirk Franklin").

Franklin will no doubt have a smaller cast of characters along with him on the road. Here's where you can find him:
