Skillet Announce ‘Day Of Destiny’ UK Tour Dates
Two-time Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum Wisconsin quartet Skillet have announced a brand new UK Tour for this April. The ‘Day of Destiny’ tour at Manchester Academy and London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum will see Skillet joined by Like A Storm and very special guests Eva Under Fire.
Skillet – John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar] are 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. The breakout single Monster remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 billion global audio streams.
2016’s Unleashed bowed 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 status. The new album Dominion: Day of Destiny will be released on Friday 17 February. Featuring five new tracks including upcoming single Psycho In My Head, the new album is a companion to 2022’s Dominion which was one of the highest charting rock and metal albums in the US last year.
Between selling out arenas across four continents, Skillet’s graphic novel, Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, has become the publisher’s best-selling book of all time with follow up graphic novel, Eden II: The Aftermath is out now.
Skillet will be joined by Alt metal/rock New Zealanders Like A Storm from New Zealand Like A Storm and one of rock’s most exciting up and coming bands Eva Under Fire.
Skillet’s Day Of Destiny tour includes the following UK dates:
Friday 14 – Manchester Academy
Saturday 15 – London O2 Forum
