One of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, Skillet, have announced they’ll be going on tour in 2020! They dubbed it the “Victorious Tour” to support their tenth album, Victorious, which is out now. Joining them will be From Ashes To New and Ledger, the latter band features Skillet drummer Jen Ledger. Skillet is made of up John Cooper (lead vocals/bass), Korey Cooper (guitar/keys), Jen Ledger (drums/vocals), and Seth Morrison (lead guitar.) They really just finished their Fall 2019 co-headlining tour of North America with Seven Dust and Alter Bridge, and they just wrapped a sold-out headline tour of Europe. They’ve been busy touring this past year and they’ve already announced another tour; they’re keeping fans fed!
Hey, you know what’s even better than being a fan excited about their favorite band touring? The band being excited about touring! Here’s what frontman John Cooper had to say:
The whole band is excited to play new music and meet with the fans on the ‘Victorious Tour’. There’s something about going out on tour, connecting with fans, and having enough time to play everyone’s favorite song – whether it’s from the new album or hits from the Collide or Awake days. We wanted this tour to be very fan-focused so we went to our fans to build out the set list and added two VIP experiences, a Q&A, and a M&G, so there’s something for everyone.
The pre-sale for tickets is set for Tuesday, December 3 at noon EST. The public on-sale is slated for Friday, December 6 at 10am local time. Also, Skillet will be offering two VIP pre-sale packages, including a Q&A Experience with exclusive Skillet merchandise and a limited number of M&G Experiences available at here with the pre-sale password “VICTORIOUS.”
The tour kicks off on February 6 in Wichita, Kansas, and will continue through March 14 in Norfolk, Virginia.

Skillet is one of the best rock bands of the 21st century. They’re two-time GRAMMY nominated and their currently celebrating their tenth Top 10 Active Rock single with ‘Legendary.’ The track is being used as the official theme song for WWE’s RAW on USA Network, and WWE also used the song as the trailer for the 2K20 Video Game. The NBA, NCA, and MLB have also featured this track! Since it’s such a hit, are you going to get yourself some tickets to see Skillet perform it on their Victorious Tour? I’m for sure going to!
John Cooper had also said about tour:
The support on this tour is unreal. We reconnected with From Ashes to New at a festival this summer and I knew we had to have them out on the road. I’m also stoked to have Ledger back out and to introduce the band to Skillet fans who haven’t seen her rock live yet. This tour is going to be insane and we’re ready for it.
So, the real question is: are you ready to see Skillet on their Victorious Tour? You’d better be!
