Photos and Review by Cindi Jean Huang

It’s been five years since Skillet has toured the U.S. They’ve been busy touring other countries and working on new music. They’re finally back in the states and promoting their newest album Unleashed. The last and first time I saw Skillet was at an intimate acoustic set at 95 WIIL Rock Station almost 10 years ago. Let’s just say this night at Concord was a whole other experience. Both experiences blew me away. This is a fun, spirit-driven, hard-rockin’ four piece that continues to evolve and manages to also uplift their fans and crowd-goers. All four members have great charisma on stage and seem like a tight-knit group with great chemistry. Their crowd interactions really draw the whole room in. Their songs and lyrics truly lift up the spirits of the audience and has people leaving the night feeling elevated and cleansed. Take a look through the photos and you will see their liveliness and energy pour out through the stillness.
