TobyMac Postpones Tour to 2020 After Oldest Son’s Death

Christian music star TobyMac has postponed a 12-city theater tour he was set to go out on Nov. 7-24, rescheduling the dates for April and May of 2020 — a move anticipated in the wake of the sudden death of the singer’s son, 21-year-old aspiring rapper Truett Foster McKeehan, on Oct. 23.

“Due to the untimely passing of his oldest son Truett Foster, Toby’s place is at home with his family this fall,” promoter Awakening Events said in a statement. “The TobyMac Theatre tour in its entirety has been rescheduled to the spring. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause fans. … We appreciate your patience, understanding, and continued prayers for the McKeehan family during this difficult time.”

No changes have been announced for a separate arena tour scheduled to begin January 30 and running through the end of March.

Wednesday, TobyMac and his wife, Amanda Levy McKeehan, announced they had set up an organization in honor of their son, called the Truett Foster Foundation, to raise money to help kids pursue education in music.

No cause of death has been released. Initial reports said the Nashville Fire Department received a call about a person in cardiac arrest at the family’s home and pronounced McKeehan dead on arrival. Autopsy results might take 6-8 weeks, authorities said at the time.
