SKILLET will return to the road in North America this winter in support of its tenth album, "Victorious", out now. The band's headline trek will kick off on February 6 in Wichita, Kansas and run through March 14 in Norfolk, Virginia. Support on the tour will come from FROM ASHES TO NEW and LEDGER, the latter of which features SKILLET drummer Jen Ledger. SKILLET is fresh off back-to-back fall 2019 co-headline North American tours with SEVENDUST and ALTER BRIDGE, respectively. The band just wrapped a sold-out headline tour of Europe as well.
"The whole band is excited to play new music and meet with the fans on the 'Victorious' tour," says SKILLET frontman John Cooper. "There's something about going out on tour, connecting with fans, and having enough time to play everyone's favorite song — whether it's from the new album or hits from the 'Collide' or 'Awake' days. We wanted this tour to be very fan-focused so we went to our fans to build out the set list and added two VIP experiences, a Q&A, and a M&G, so there's something for everyone."
He continues: "The support on this tour is unreal. We reconnected with FROM ASHES TO NEW at a festival this summer and I knew we had to have them out on the road. I'm also stoked to have LEDGER back out and to introduce the band to SKILLET fans who haven't seen her rock live yet. This tour is going to be insane and we're ready for it."
All upcoming dates are below. The pre-sale is set for Tuesday, December 3 at noon EST. The public on-sale is slated for Friday, December 6 at 10 a.m. local time. SKILLET will be offering two VIP presale packages, including a Q&A Experience with exclusive SKILLET merchandise and a limited number of M&G Experiences available at www.skillet.com/tour with the presale password "VICTORIOUS."
In other SKILLET news, the band is celebrating its tenth Top 10 Active Rock single with "Legendary". In addition to the track being tapped as the official theme song for WWE's "Raw" on USA network, the WWE also used the song as the trailer for the "2K20" video game. The NBA, NCA and MLB have also featured the energetic track.
