Davis & Elkins College will present some of the top names in Christian music as 1 Night Music Circus brings its 2018 spring tour to campus. Envisioned as a way of creating an event that would appeal to all ages and unify families for one night, 1 Night Music Circus mixes rock, pop, worship and easy listening music. The evening features two-time Grammy nominated Sanctus Real, Juno Award winning Manic Drive, California’s YouTube star V. Rose and Young Noah.
 
Sanctus Real is known for its rock sound and ability to combine unique musical stylings with straight-from-the-heart lyrics. The band’s newest album, “Changed,” is set for release this spring. Manic Drive is hitting the road with its newest album, “Into the Wild.” The edgy pop duo sets its focus on a need for honesty, relevance and transparency in their lyrics and sound. A formidable female-fusion of modern pop and hip-hop, V. Rose is a spiritually grounded millennial whose musical roots run eclectic, honest and deep.
 
Group discount of $3 per ticket will be given when 10 or more tickets are purchased at the same time. A limited number of VIP tickets is available, which includes the concert and 6 p.m. early admission to the auditorium, a 15-minute question-and-answer session with the artists, concert poster, Manic Drive's CD “Into the Wild” and pictures with Sanctus Real, Manic Drive, V. Rose and Young Noah.
