Brisbane fans will have their first opportunity to see SKILLET live since 2018 when they arrive this April.

Not every rebellion gestates in darkness. As one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, SKILLET continue to rebel against conventions, doubts, expectations, and rules with the intent to uplift in light.

SKILLET have never compromised their integrity or their faith. Instead, they have travelled their own path to unprecedented heights with an urgent sound, undeniable energy, and unbreakable spirit.

96five’s Ken and Nicky caught up with frontman John Cooper to learn more about the tour, the new album, Dominion, and why he’s excited to return to Australia.

“It doesn’t feel that long ago when we came to Australia… it’s really crazy to think of five years just like flying like that” John said.

“We’ve put out some new music, you know, I think SKILLET is just… we’re feeling on fire, man. We’re feeling ready to take over the world.”

John described how right now, being a part of SKILLET is making him feel like a teenager all over again.

“What we see at SKILLET shows is a lot of people… they vote different ways; they believe different things” John said.

“But they want to come to a concert that’s going to make people feel like there’s something good happening in the world.

“So, they come to the show and they and they hear this great message and it’s unifying, it’s positive. And I always get to tell people about the love of God. You’re not alone. God loves you. He knows your name. 

SKILLET will be performing on 5th April at the Eatons Hills Hotel Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.
