Helping Christians Grow, Helping Grow Christians
ApologetiX at Hopewell
Hopewell United Methodist's Concert Series welcomes ApologetiX on Friday, May 17th at 7:30 PM. ApologetiX are nationally acclaimed recording artists noted for their dead-on imitations of original pop recordings rendered as original Christian-themed parodies. From newer songs like, "Lived the Day You Died", a parody of the Eminem/Rihanna hit, "Love the Way You Lie" to classics such as Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", performed as a David-versus-Goliath, "Bethlehemian Rhapsody". They’ve been at this for 20 years, recording 21 albums (so far) and this will be their 1,420th show. You really should be a part of it!
Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. For groups of 10 or more, the tickets cost only $8 each. Children under the age of 5 attend free. PURCHASE TICKETS now via Hopewell’s secure purchasing website. Print out the response and bring that as your tickets.
ApologetiX will have their CDs, DVDs, and other band merchandise available at the show. And they really like to meet their fans after the show, so get ready to meet some of the most talented and fun musicians to ever recreate and rectify popular music… See you on Friday, May 17th at 7:30 PM!
About the Band
ApologetiX gets their unusual name from the word "apologetics" which means "the defense of the Christian faith." It's based on the Greek word for defense, apologia, which is in the original text of 1 Peter 3:15: "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer (or defense or "apologia") to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
