American Christian Rock Band, Skillet has announced a show at the Casper Events Center as part of their “Unleashed” Tour.

All seats are general admission. Tickets on sale beginning at 11:30 am on Friday, June 16th. The concert is scheduled for Sept. 3rd, 2017.

The Wisconsin quartet of John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Jen Ledger, and Seth Morrison, have received two Grammy Award nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified “Awake,” according to the Events Center’s official announcement.

Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 57 million plays on Spotify and would earn the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.”

The group’s ninth full-length album, “Unleashed,” the group says they sought to make things louder, amplifying all aspects of their sound. John Cooper immediately commenced writing just months after the group’s previous album. “By the time Rise came out, I could take a little bit of a breather and experience it,” he explains. “I remember thinking, ‘this feels important to me, but I need something a little more urgent.’ I didn’t want whatever we did next to be so emotionally heavy. I wanted to make a record that made people feel the music – an album that would connect people to the music as well as to each other. An album, like some of my favorites, that’d be like a party to listen to – where people could sing along – together.”

Skillet has previously toured Europe in 2013 with Nickelback.

“We are living in a world of violence, literally all over the globe,” Cooper says. “It’s a dangerous world to live in. Something could happen any time, anywhere. And it seems that no one is safe. This song is about finding something/someone who makes you feel strong and safe. I found this in my Christian faith. It’s the only reason I have found worth living; much less living with any real compass and resolution.”

Ticket prices are $38. Tickets available online at SinclairTix.com, charge by phone at (800)442-2256 or in person at the SinclairTix Box Office at the Casper Events Center.
