NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY®-nominated platinum-selling rockers Skillet will return to the famed Winter Jam stage to headline the blockbuster tour’s 20th year. Reigning as the world’s #1 first quarter tour for four consecutive years, NewSong’s Winter Jam Tour Spectacular revealed its 2015 line-up and cities during an event this month at Nashville’s Hard Rock Café.
Skillet will headline Winter Jam 2015.
Founded and hosted by GRAMMY®-nominated NewSong, the tour will also feature Jeremy Camp, Francesca Battistelli, Building 429, for KING & COUNTRY, Family Force 5 and evangelist Tony Nolan, while the LifeWay Christian Stores Pre-Jam Party is slated to showcase Blanca, About A Mile and VERIDIA.
“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!”
Promoted by Premier Productions and presented by Holt International, the tour—known for its 10 artists for $10 admission—will hit 47 cities from January through March. Winter Jam is slated to visit some of the country’s top venues, including Chicago’s Allstate Arena; the Toyota Center in Houston; Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena; the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida’s BB&T Center; and the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina, among numerous others.
