Skillet & Alter Bridge Victorious Sky Tour at the Myth

Lead Singer: John Cooper

When walking into the show, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I had only heard of Skillet. It turned out to be an amazing show.

The show opener was Dirty Honey. Recently their song “When I’m Gone” went big and it hit number one. They definitely had an early 80’s ring to them, something like Led Zeppelin. Definitely a great fit to start the show.

Next up is Alter Bridge. I had the feeling a lot of people came to see this band alone. Their new album, Walk the Sky, which releases Oct. 18, sounds a bit more mellow than they used to, but they still had the sound for which they are known.

They did play three of their new songs: “Wouldn’t You Rather,” “Take the Crown,” and “Pay No Mind.” They also sounded great. It was an all-around great performance.

The headliner was Skillet. As I mentioned, I have heard of these guys. I was excited to see them. I could tell they have gotten a lot better over the years.

It was different seeing them at a non-Christian event. They are still known as a Christian band. They still have the same band, still speak what they believe in, and all the while still capture the audience throughout the show.

Drummer/Singer: Jen Ledger & Singer

One of the only and best female drummers out there is Jen Ledger. I’m always impressed by her performance. Not only does she play, but also sings at the same time. She doesn’t even look at the drums and still knows what to do — truly outstanding to see and hear at the show.

Korey Cooper
Guitarist: Korey Cooper

For one that normally doesn’t go to rock concerts, I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t as crazy heavy as I thought it would be. I feel like anybody would have liked it. I would give the show a 10 out of 10, well worth every bit.
