There will never be any shortage of bands I haven’t seen but want to see. One of those is playing Nashville on Feb. 18. Whores., correctly penned by their publicity folk, is a powerhouse trio from Atlanta. YouTube their live stuff and you’ll see how intense they are.
The awards show will feature performances from Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Anthrax, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Halestorm, Body Count, In This Moment, Lita Ford, Nothing More, Starset, Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta and Power Trip, along with a bunch of surprises throughout the night!
I’m not into contemporary Christian music, but one of the genre’s biggest and most successful tours typically has a small rock flair. The 2018 lineup has been announced and Skillet is the headliner for 2018.
I’ve seen Skillet at this event once before and if you want to get close – there won’t likely be a pit – you’ll have to arrive really early, as the entry is $15 GA at the door and you’ll have to sit through a few acts you’s rather not.
But as far as an encouraging worship experience, it’s great. You’ll just have to deal with the soft music until Skillet shreds and they won’t hold back.
The UK foursome has produced some of the most dance-happy rock you haven’t heard. You have a chance Thursday in Birmingham, so take advantage of the opportunity.
They’ve played with the Stones and can boast Motley Crue among their fanbase. You’ll be in that mix too. So if you were planning just to get to BJCC in time for Foo Fighters Thursday, get there earlier and see these guys.
This is the latest single, but subscribe to their Vevo and familiarize yourself and sing along Thursday. “Could Have Been Me” may be my favorite track. It is below too.
