Big Daddy Weave’s “Heaven Changes Everything Tour” with Tasha Layton and Hannah Kerr is coming to cities across the country this fall. The tour is produced by Transparent Productions and presented by World Concern.
The tour promises to be an inspirational, joyful and unforgettable night that will feature many fan-favorite songs from Big Daddy Weave, including their latest hits “Heaven Changes Everything” and “God Is In This Story”; as well as Layton’s “Look What You’ve Done,” “How Far,” and her newest single “Never”; joined by Kerr’s “Same God” and “Warrior,” among so many others.
“We are so thankful for the hope of heaven,” Big Daddy Weave’s Mike Weaver said. “It’s the inspiration for this tour. We love the incredible Tasha Layton, her songs, and her heart; and Hannah Kerr is a kindred spirit who, like us, desires to see God move. We’re excited for people to join us on these nights and to come expectant that the Lord is going to meet us there.”
The show visits Browncroft Community Church in Rochester on Sept. 24. (Find tickets.)
Layton added, “I am so, so happy to be joining my friends, Big Daddy Weave and Hannah Kerr, on this tour! They are such special people … salt of the earth. I have no doubt that each one of these nights is going to have an amazing outcome in the Kingdom. My prayer is that people would feel God’s presence and leave feeling encouraged, loved, and known.”
“I can’t wait for the ‘Heaven Changes Everything’ tour!” Kerr exclaimed. “These nights are going to be so special. I’ve looked up to Tasha Layton for a long time and I’m excited to tour with her finally! Her music has meant so much to me. And, it has been amazing to see how God is moving through the ministry of Big Daddy Weave over the past year of touring together. I can’t say enough good things about their music and their hearts for Jesus. They’ve truly become like family to my husband and me. We’re expectant for what God is going to do on this tour!”

More About Big Daddy Weave
Driven by the desire to see God move in people’s lives, Big Daddy Weave pours that fervor into songs such as “The Lion and The Lamb,” “My Story,” “Redeemed,” “Overwhelmed, “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” and “Alive,” all that touch millions. When Jay Weaver, founding member and brother to lead singer Mike Weaver, went to be with the Lord in 2022, there was a celebration of victory for what Jesus has done paired with the pain of no longer having Jay in their daily lives. The time of grieving that followed brought revelations that were poured into songs.
“God Is In This Story,” their duet with Katy Nichole, tells how God is with each of us in whatever we’re going through. “Heaven Changes Everything” shares how the promise of heaven gives us hope. These life messages are at the heart of every Big Daddy Weave song and concert. Visit their website at BigDaddyWeave.com.
