Skillet’s Winter Jam Tour Returns to the West Coast this Fall

Christian rockers, Skillet, have announced the extension of their highly popular ‘Winter Jam Tour’- the highly popular Christian music/ministry outing- which kicks off at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, NM, on November 5th, and finalizes at the Spokane Arena, in Spokane, WA, on November 15th.  A full list of dates can be found below.  Keeping with its tradition, the Winter Jam Tour offers fans 10 bands for only $10, which is payable at the door the night of the show.  However, purchasing a Jam Nation membership does have its privileges, including early admission, premium seating and other perks.

Skillet is touring behind their 2013 studio release, Rise, which hosts the singles “Sick of It”, “American Noise”, “Not Gonna Die”, and the title track, “Rise”.  Rise, the album, reached the No. 1 position on multiple charts, including Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums, Top Rock Albums, Top Alternative Albums, and Top Christian Albums charts, and also reaching the No. 4 position on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and the Billboard Digital Albums Chart.

Pearl Artist, Jen Ledger, who was welcomed to the Pearl Artist Roster in late 2014, will be turning to her custom Reference Pure drums for this leg of the Winter Jam Tour.  Finished in a custom Arctic Sparkle to Black Sparkle Fade, Jen’s Reference Pure setup is topped with a 14x6.5 Sensitone Beaded Brass snare drum, supported by Pearl’s highly durable 1030 Series Hardware, and driven by a set of Demon Chain double pedals.  More information on Jen Ledger, including full kit specs, can be found here.
