SKILLET, one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century who have garnered two Grammy nominations and are a member of the Pandora Billionaires Club, have announced Spring 2021 tour dates.
Building on the previous success of the Drive-In Theater Tour, Awakening Events has confirmed the fourth package of the 2021 series. Skillet, along with Jordan Feliz and Colton Dixon, will embark on a 21-city tour beginning April 22 in Mitchell, IN and wrapping up on May 23 in Chaffee, MO. The tour will make stops in Alabama, Virginia, Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas, and more.
All dates on the Drive-In Theater Tour will comply with local guidelines related to COVID-19. Tickets for the tour will again be sold by the car load* (up to 6 people per car) and will be available for purchase at 12pm ET Friday, March 12. A full list of cities, dates, and tickets for the tour is available here. The dates are also posted below.
*Please note that some dates on the tour will NOT be at a drive-in theater. In these shows, billed as “An Evening Under The Stars,” seating may be sold in pods or other socially distanced configurations. Please see event listings for full details.
The Drive-In Theater Tour, supported by K-Love Radio, AiR1 Radio, and Food for the Hungry, is exclusively produced by Awakening Events.
Additionally, Skillet will host a live Instagram chat on Friday, March 12 at 2pm EST to catch up with fans and answer any questions they may have.
Skillet released their Deluxe project, Victorious: The Aftermath (Atlantic) last October, a collection that features all twelve original tracks from Victorious, plus eight additional tunes, including two brand new unreleased songs, and 5 reimagined songs.
Last November the band released their second graphic novel, Eden II: The Aftermath, once again pairing Random Shock Studios with Skillet frontman John Cooper and his Eden artist Chris Hunt. Skillet’s return to the post-apocalyptic world of Eden, as established in their 2019 graphic novel debut of the same name, is an exciting one for the band as well as their publisher, Z2 Comics. The original book became their best-selling graphic novel of all time. According to Cooper, Aftermath promises “more action, more surprises, more suspense.”
