Skillet to Join 2014 Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival

Jun 19, 2014

GRAMMY®-nominated and platinum selling rock band Skillet will join multi-platinum artists Godsmack and Seether along with Buckcherry for the fifth Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival, which kicks off August 15. 

Previously hailed by Examiner.com as "the best tour of the year," the Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival has announced 24 tour dates, kicking off in Detroit on August 15 and running through September 21.

UPROAR Festival producers John Oakes and John Reese said "We look forward to creating an incredible UPROAR experience for rock fans in every city we visit.”

Skillet's run with The UPROAR Festival will follow their current tour in Europe, where the band was invited to play multiple festivals throughout the continent, performing for thousands of fans. The tour began May 30 in Jelling, Denmark and will end July 6 in Sofia, Bulgaria with stops in Italy, Germany, Russia, United Kingdom and more. On their second European tour in support of the RISE album, Skillet is making big waves across the continent. After completing a massive fall tour last year supporting Nickelback, with six back-t0-back sold out headline shows in Russia and encore-demanding crowds, the band is rapidly gaining a solid European following.  

Skillet recently played the Download Festival in the United Kingdom, where Jen Ledger captured the attention of audiences and critics with her drumming skills. Out of 100 plus bands that performed at Download 2014, Musicradar.com named Jen among the 8 greatest drumming performances at the festival alongside Rob Bourdon of Linkin Park and Joey Kramer of Aerosmith. See the full article at Musicradar.com.

"A short but awesome set witnessed Jen’s Dave Grohl-esque power behind the kit, particularly impressive as she sings a lot too – with no let up in her whole-body drumming style," Musicradar.com said of the performance. "We were particularly blown away by the even double-kick and flashes of tasty technique on display as the band played their hits ‘Hero’ and ‘Monster’ and tracks from new album RISE."
