This event has been and gone.
After playing main stage at Download Festival 2014 and supporting Nickelback, Skillet have announced their debut headline UK Tour.
Skillet recently made headlines when their last album, Awake, became one of just three rock albums to be certified platinum in 2012, forming an improbable triumvirate with the Black Keys' El Camino and Mumford & Sons' Babel.
The news that Skillet had sold more than a million albums in the U.S. came as a shock to all but the band's wildly diverse horde of fans, male and female, young and old-known as Panheads-whose still-swelling ranks now officially number in the seven-digit range.
This remarkable achievement was announced just as Skillet were putting the finishing touches on their eagerly awaited follow-up album.
Skillet is a Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States. The band currently consists of husband and wife John (lead vocals, bass) and Korey Cooper (rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), along with Jen Ledger (drums, vocals) and Seth Morrison (lead guitar). The band has released eight albums, two receiving Grammy nominations: Collide and Comatose.Awake has been certified Platinum and debuted on No. 2 on the Billboard 200, with Comatose certified Gold by RIAA.
