GRAMMY®-nominated platinum-selling rockers Skillet will return to the famed Winter Jam stage to headline the blockbuster tour’s 20th year. Winter Jam comes to the Berglund Center on March 12. Tickets will be available with a $10 donation at the door.
“As we enter a landmark year for Winter Jam, we’re overwhelmed by God’s favor on an event that began as one concert in 1995,” said Eddie Carswell, Winter Jam creator and NewSong founding member. “The tour has grown in unimaginable ways, but one thing has remained the same—an unwavering commitment to share the Gospel every night. This year’s line-up continues a tradition of excellent music and impacting ministry, and we’re especially excited to welcome our friends Skillet back as headliners.”
"Skillet is pumped to get back out on tour with Winter Jam," remarked lead singer John Cooper from the band's headline tour across Europe, which is selling out in multiple cities including London, Hamburg and Cologne, Germany and more. "After several tours in Europe over the past year, we're looking forward to heading out on a tour that will keep us in the U.S. all winter and spring; and most importantly will help bring the message of hope in Jesus to people all over the nation! It's gonna rock, so get ready!”
