      Skillet came through Worcester, MA on the seventh night of their Victorious Sky Tour with Alter Bridge in support of Victorious, their tenth full length album released on August 2. With special guests Dirty Honey opening the night, this was a phenomenal night of hard rock for the packed venue.   

      Dirty Honey was new to most of the crowd, but they have been on my radar for some time now and I do believe this rock quartet are about to become a household name amongst music lovers. Check out their song  “When I’m Gone” which was featured as the theme song for the 2019 WWE Extreme Rules special. If you’re a fan of Led Zeppelin, you will like these young up and comers. The audience seemed to show their approval with loud applause and screams between songs.


      Skillet played next, as they were co-headlining with Alter Bridge. The band currently consists of John Cooper on lead vocals and bass, Korey Cooper (John’s wife) on rhythm guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals, Seth Morrison on lead guitar, and Jen Ledger on drums and vocals. Some may shy away hearing that they are a Christian rock band, but their message is one of hope and unity, something we all need. Their fist pumping arena quality rock should be witnessed for yourself and will draw you in. I honestly was enjoying the show so much I almost forgot I was reviewing it and had to make myself pay closer attention to details.

      The energy was felt from the very first note of “Feel Invincible” off their 2016 album Unleashed and the audience was captivated. They took us back to 2006 with “Comatose” and “Whispers In The Dark” and long time fans belted out the lyrics. With only brief introductions between songs, Skillet powered through the 14 song set that included four songs each off of Victorious and Unleashed, and three off of Awake in addition to a few older songs.  (Complete setlists below.)

      Korey whipped around the stage with her purple hair flying as she bounced between her guitar and keys, Ledger pummeled those drums while keeping up with sharing her vocals duties, as Morrison impressed with his guitar solos. Ledger stepped out from behind the kit to join in the lead vocals of “Hero” and it was beautifully done. John strapped on some Co2 wrist cannons that shoot out into the air like something you’d see in a superhero movie. I had seen him do this at the Impact Festival in Maine over the summer and thought it was sensational addition to the already awe inspiring performance.  Concluding songs were the notorious “Monster” and “The Resistance” which they did with an extended intro and outro. Skillet performed a nice long passionate set that left me very satisfied.


      By the time Alter Bridge took to the stage, you could barely move through the ample crowd. That’s okay though, as I wasn’t going to move from my spot next to the front security with an unobstructed view of the stage. Their set included everything you could want from an Alter Bridge show, starting with “Wouldn’t You Rather” off the sixth studio album to be released October 18th, “Isolation” (my personal favorite), and “Blackbird” amongst others. We were also treated to two more new songs off the upcoming Walk The Sky album called "Pay No Mind" and "Take The Crown." The 12 song set concluded with a fan singalong of “Open Your Eyes" before they took a group bow and exited the stage.

      Myles had recently been a little under the weather but I couldn’t tell in his vocals. Watching Myles Kennedy and Mark Temonti on stage together is always a visual treat as much as it is auditory. Kennedy and Tremonti with bandmates Brian Marshall on bass, and Scott Phillips on drums always rock my world! You can tell they love what they are doing and certainly put their all into their talent. Make sure to catch this tour in a city near you.
