SKILLET To headline European Fall trek with upcoming “Skillet: Victorious Tour”

Promising new music from their anticipated album Victorious (Aug. 2), multi-platinum selling rockers Skillet are announcing their headlining “Skillet: Victorious Tour” throughout Europe this Nov. and Dec. 2019. Just returning from a heavily sold-out jaunt across Russia, Skillet has amassed an international following in Europe with bookings at some of Europe’s biggest festivals including Nova Rock, Graspop, Volt Festival, Rock for People, Download Festivals, Pink Pop in previous summers. The 27-stop run will embark to Copenhagen, Vienna, London, Paris and more with back-to-back shows in both Budapest and Antwerp. Tickets for “Skillet: Victorious Tour” on Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. local time. A limited number of pre-order VIP M&G packages are currently available at www.skillet.com/become-a-member.

 

“We are thrilled to be returning to Europe for our headline tour. I can’t wait to share our new music from Victorious with the fans. I see a ton of comments from our international fans on socials, so I wanted to make it a priority to spend some time connecting with the Panheads overseas,” shares frontman John Cooper. “Since we are going on our own tour, we’ll really be able to give the fans an incredible full set with our new songs and connect with Panheads, old and new, in our meet & greets.”

 

Every victory merits a theme song, and victory is exactly what the 2X GRAMMY® nominees hail with their tenth full-length album, Victorious, due August 2 (Atlantic). The follow-up to the RIAA Gold-certified Unleashed (their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum or double-platinum certification), the new project continues to propel the band’s position as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, racking up over 1 billion streams in 2018 alone. Victorious is available for https://lnk.to/skilletvictorious with special merchandise packages.

About Skillet:

One of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum Wisconsin quartet Skillet—John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar]—write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-platinum Awake. Its breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with 285 global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashedbowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Going #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 150 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold-certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas on four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and New York Times, to name a few. In 2018 alone, the band clocked 1 billion Spotify streams. This momentum continues on their 2019 tenth full-length, Victorious. With the bulk produced by Korey and John, it lives up to its name for Skillet as their most triumphant body of work yet.
