Nashville, TN — On Friday, March 5, 2021, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award-winning band MercyMe will perform their first show in a year. The Show’tel Amelia Island with MercyMe will allow fans to escape to the beachfront luxury of The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach, FL.

The following video, seen below, provides a visual rendering of what the experience will be like.
An extremely intimate VIP experience, the event is designed to exceed the expectations of the local health department with the goal to give everyone the experience of a lifetime without sacrificing anyone’s safety. Tickets for Show’tel Amelia Island with MercyMe are on sale and available now.
“We haven’t done a show since March 8, 2020,” notes lead vocalist Bart Millard, reflecting on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their music and the affect on performing concerts.
Millard continues, “We’ve been anxious to get back on the road, so when this opportunity came to us to partner with The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island we thought it would be something that was unique, entertaining, and allows for social distancing. The live music industry has been hurting, but so have many more including the hotel industry. So, why not do a live concert at a hotel where your hotel room becomes your own private concert suite? What do you call that? Show’tel… get it? We are so excited to get back out with our fans for this unique experience.”
