Skillet lets their music speak the loudest. That’s how the quartet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling over 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 was “the 8th 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.” This is the first ever time Skillet has headlined a show in New Zealand!
Epic, expansive and anthemic, Skillet create the type of rock that simply explodes in a live setting. Rather than merely a show, Skillet put on an experience for their fans through authentic and energetic performances of their studio work, as well as existential banter with fans touching on everything from the bands faith, to their support of serving men and woman to frontman John Cooper’s passion for video games.
It’s been an amazing journey. The fans, the Panheads, mean everything to us. They’re the reason we’re here. They make our shows what they are - John Cooper
With 9 studio albums under their belt, starting from their 1996 self-titled debut to 2016’s Unleashed fans can expect an evening of classics and current fan favourites. Hits such as Monster, Hero, Awake and Alive, Comatose, Whispers in the Dark, Not Gonna Die and Rise will get a run along with tracks from their latest album Unleashed – such as Feel Invincible, The Resistance and Back from the Dead.
Now it’s time to witness Skillet live - this is when they are at their most potent, pure, and powerful.
