The numbers are misleading really. See, while you saw the number 500 under the screen of The Rock And Worship Live Broadcast, the actual amount of people watching for the last night of the tour was quite a bit more. There’s a weird delay when logging the ‘total’ number of viewers any specific night and the actual number was 15,103 people watching the show! What? 15,000 people?? That’s almost enough to get Bart to shave his head too.
So, anyway. Right after the show we all went back to MercyMe’s dressing room and they started in. Bart and Mike with clippers, Nathan with scissors and Barry with (literally) a pocket knife hacking away. About an hour later and here we are.
Now, originally the plan was to wait until after The Dove Awards, but Bart wouldn’t allow it. So now, walking around GMA Week yesterday no one recognized me, even if I had just gotten off the bus with them that morning.
Yes, we do have video of the whole ordeal and it will be posted at some point over on the MercyMe blog, but for now here’s a quick picture. Thanks to everyone who showed up to make the last night of the tour the biggest night online. You people are amazing.
