2016 is proving to be a milestone year for Skillet and 2017 is shaping up to continue the trend. Coming off the band’s most successful European headline run to date that included numerous sold-out performances, Skillet will embark on the second U.S. leg of The Unleashed Tour. The 26-city tour will kick off on February 8th in Clifton Park, NY and will make stops in Philadelphia, PA; Spokane, WA; Los Angeles, CA and Denver, CO to name a few. The tour wraps on March 24th in Little Rock, AR and is a continuation of the band’s celebrated U.S. run that wrapped up last October. Sick Puppies and Devour The Day will be support on these new dates. An exclusive presale for The Panheads (The Official Skillet Fan Club) will go live on Wednesday, December 14th. Tickets and VIP Packages including an opportunity to meet the band will be available and fans can sign up for the fan club at: http://www.skillet.com/become-a-member. Public onsale for all shows will be Friday, December 16th and ticket links can be found at: http://www.skillet.com/tour.
Skillet will be touring in support of their latest album Unleashed. The 12-track, critically acclaimed album is available via all physical and digital retailers nationwide. The debut single “Stars” hit #1 at Christian Hot AC and “Feel Invincible” recently went to #1 on both the Active (Mediabase) and Mainstream (BDS) Rock charts. The video for “Feel Invincible” has been viewed over 21 million times on YouTube (https://youtu.be/Qzw6A2WC5Qo) and streamed over 16 million times on Spotify (www.smarturl.it/StreamSkillet).
Skillet will also be making the rounds throughout the U.S. festivals this Spring. The band has already been announced for Creation Northeast on July 1st in Shirleysburg, PA and Creation Northwest on July 15th in Kennewick, WA along with several over notable Christian festivals and fairs to be announced. Tickets for these festival dates are already on sale.
Skillet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two GRAMMY® Award nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 57 million plays (and counting) on Spotify and would earn the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.” 2013’s Rise bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release and received resounding and eclectic acclaim from the likes of USA Today, New York Times, Revolver Loudwire, and more.
