Tickets are still available for the hit contemporary Christian band Big Daddy Weave's concert on Saturday at Alice Drive Baptist Church.

Mandy Easton, creative pastor at Alice Drive Baptist, said Tuesday that $20 general admission tickets will be sold through today at Olive Tree Christian Bookstore and One Accord, through Thursday at the church office and on Saturday night at the door.

General admission tickets are also available online at www.ticketfly.com, and the website is also where people can purchase early admission tickets and premium seat tickets, she said. Early admission tickets are $35, and premium seat tickets are $75 and include a backstage pass to meet the band afterward.

The Sumter concert is a tour stop on the band's 30-stop tour for this year called The Alive Tour, according to Easton.

The five-member band is comprised of lead singer Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Joe Shirk, Jeremy Redmon and Brian Beihl.

The band has had 16 top-10 singles on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart since 2003, including two No. 1 hits - "Redeemed" reached No. 1 in 2012 from its Love Come to Life album. The band's most recent hit song, "Alive," reached No. 8 a couple weeks ago.

The night of the show, doors will open for general admission at 6 p.m. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and will also feature cellist Becca Bradley and violinist Jonathan Chu.

Due to a pilot's schedule conflict, Mike Weaver will not be able to stay overnight and lead music on Sunday at services at the church, however, Easton said.
