Joy Invincible: Switchfoot’s Fantastic Traveling Music Show
Switchfoot presented the tour as a way to thank their fans for more than 20 years of music. Really, it also ultimately served as proof of why this group can easily fill out auditoriums after over two decades.

The resilience of those things through all the worst chapters we live is truly a joy invincible.

While it might be trendy for 90s artists to hit the road with "reunion" tours, Scott's new material is as good and relevant today as anything he's ever sung.
Switchfoot: The Stories Redemption Tells
Switchfoot’s Native Tongue tour stopped in Nashville on a rainy night in February. It was close enough to the beginning of the tour that everyone was a little giddy; after all, a year earlier, the future of Switchfoot had seemed deeply uncertain as they entered a hiatus.
