Skillet Announces 2017 Version of ‘The Unleashed Tour’

Panheads get ready to be unleashed, Christian music rockers Skillet, have announced plans to continue “The Unleashed Tour,” into 2017 across North America. The tour will support the band’s tenth studio album Unleashed, released on August 5, 2016.

Frontman and bassist John Cooper posted a video on social media about the upcoming tour, stating that the band is going to play in venues across the United States that the band hasn’t performed in many years. The Unleashed Tour, also featuring Sick Puppies and Devour the Day in tour support, will hit 27 cities across the nation in all, kicking things off in New York’s capital region at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, on Feb. 8. The tour comes to a close on Mar. 24, at the Metroplex in Little Rock, AR.

Skillet made a surprise acoustic appearance over the summer in the capital region at the Lucky Strike Social’s Jupiter Hall, for local rock radio station Q103. The radio station held a contest for fans to win the very limited intimate experience with the band which was covered by NYS Music.

New York will also see a second date on the tour when Skillet unleashes panheads in Niagara Falls at the Rapids Theatre on Feb. 11. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday Dec. 16. Skillet fan club members have access to pre-sale and VIP Meet and Greet tickets with the band.

Skillet will hit up many major rock festivals over the summer, already committing to Rock On The Range and Carolina Rebellion.

Formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996, Skillet is husband and wife duo John (lead vocals, bass guitar) and Korey Cooper (rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Jen Ledger (drums, vocals), and Seth Morrison (lead guitar).
