When will you guys be back. Come on Bakersfield concerts suck if you guys aren't here.

09-27-2004, 02:28 PM
ya know, there are quite a few SoCal concerts that Skillet puts on each year. they may not all be Bakersfield, but they are within a couple hours driving distance.

that's not bad considering the rest of the nation usually has only a couple a year, if they are lucky. i have never seen Skillet in my area before.

so just be patient. :) they will be back! i'm certain!

(oh, and you can check up on tour dates at

09-27-2004, 09:16 PM
they are coming back to station 316 ( which is in bakersfield, california - on oct. 22nd. i already have my tickets. :)

10-03-2004, 03:37 PM
How did you get your tickets?! I've been calling and looking online for hours!!! Or for as long as I couldn't think of anywhere else to look! :o

10-05-2004, 10:50 AM - you order them online through the venue's site. and you will get them through will call. they won't mail tickets out (probably so they won't get lost in the mail...or at least they aren't for me, maybe since i ordered them so soon, i dunno).

click on their events page and when you see Skillet listed, they have a place where you can order tickets. and depending on which show you want to go to/can make it to. one is at 7pm and one is at 9pm. (yes, 2 shows, same venue.)

10-05-2004, 11:40 AM
:-\ I was on the site and couldn't find must be terribly computer illiterate.

10-05-2004, 04:53 PM
under Calender it shows the event - look for Oct. 22.

to order tickets click the button on your right hand side called "online store" and scroll to Oct. 22 and you can buy them (through paypal).

10-14-2004, 02:28 PM
After much much much confusion I got tickets! YES! I can't wait! 8 days!!!!!!!! ;D

10-14-2004, 03:48 PM
i am sorry you were confused. but hey, glad it worked out. i'll see ya there. :)

10-21-2004, 06:51 PM
rachel, chrishna - i look forward to seeing you both tomorrow!

lydia - don't be afraid to say hello, it'd be cool to meet another panhead. :)

10-23-2004, 12:34 PM
last night was awesome.

10-23-2004, 01:30 PM
that's all you've got to say? come on. ;) i know you can do better than that.

10-23-2004, 04:31 PM
I had fun! It was a blast! Except I was saddened by the whole "no moshing" rule. I wasn't in a spot where the moshing would've been the best, but still. I had fun rocking out, though. And the concert was awesome, as always. There was a bit of...........whatever going on with the sound, but rock on.

10-23-2004, 04:43 PM
lydia - don't be afraid to say hello, it'd be cool to meet another panhead. :)
I didn't see that until just now... ::]

10-23-2004, 06:20 PM
Anyone got pics?????

10-23-2004, 06:38 PM
Give us some time and Tracy and I will have some pictures available.

10-23-2004, 08:27 PM
Swwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeet thanks rach....

10-23-2004, 08:41 PM
lol@lydia. next time. ;) did you go to the first show or the second show?

and the second show was better in that the crowd was a lot more responsive and hyped up. it is interesting how you get your a little more space around you when you rock out. suddenly people don't want to be right up against you trying to get to the front. lol. i guess they don't like flying hair. :P and yes, i have pics but i need to go through them and throw some online.

here is a pic (taken before the show) of Chrishna, Rachel and I sporting the new girl Skillet hoodies. :)

it was great getting to hang out with friends and rock out to great music. they almost didn't come because john hurt his back. bur despite john's back hurting, they still put on a good show. i think the most interesting part in the first show was how John messed up the ending on "Your Powerful" and the second show they did "Imperfection" but they played it in a higher key. (maybe since he only had his purple and green bass?) it still rocked though.

is that better mike? ;)

10-23-2004, 08:55 PM
Tracy how much is the hoodies??? I like it i think im going to get one this coming up friday!!! Glad u had an awesome time,.....

10-23-2004, 09:01 PM
Hey, last night did in fact rock. Great to see the familiar faces in bakersfield. Our moshing got shut down 3 times but we had a blast. You may have heard me and Jared yelling near the end: "PLAY 'I CAN!'" and thats what they did, so I was excited. Open Wounds really impressed me.
I don't normally post on messageboards anymore, some of you may have remembered me from my site at and the hundreds of pics on that.
Anyway if you're in the bakersfield area on November 3rd, come back to that venue to see STAPLE play with Mortal Treason and 2 other bands.
Alright take care.


10-23-2004, 09:10 PM
the skillet girl hoodies were on discount for $30 - they are normally $ i guess plan on $35 and see what happens. :)

daniel - even though i didn't say hello to ya, it was good to see ya still supporting skillet. ;)

10-23-2004, 09:29 PM
is there diff colors? last time i saw them in sept they didnt have it i dont recall..

10-24-2004, 07:07 AM
No, it's just the pink. They have a really nice guy's hoodie too that's blue with a slightly different design.

10-24-2004, 03:24 PM
is that better mike? ;)
yes, quite. :) thanks. :D sounds like a good show, despite, like you said, John's hurt back. how did that happen anyway? :-\

10-24-2004, 04:15 PM
he said he was just rocking out like he normally does and it just went out, so to speak. he said he has had back problems since he was little.

he took a lot of medicine before the second show so he could rock out more...he was a little stiff. i felt bad for him.

so hey, if you guys think of it, keep him in your prayers.

10-24-2004, 04:25 PM
for sheezy. :)

sorry, couldn't resist. ;)

10-24-2004, 04:45 PM
Great, now I have another Skillet hoodie to buy. Those things are so cool! Did you guys see the new Skillet tanks?

Glad to hear everyone had loads of fun.

10-24-2004, 06:51 PM
Praying for John.. I know God will heal him before there next show which is clifton park Ny.!!!!

10-25-2004, 08:51 AM
On the new hoodie, is there anything printed on the back? The zip-up hoodie is what I have been waiting for. I hate pull overs but I got the alien youth one because well hey it's a Skillet one. Man I wish they would get the stinking Skillet store up in time for Christmas.....

10-25-2004, 12:06 PM
on the back it says Skillet (in pink) and it has a picture of the band. (same picture as their 8x10 picture).

(skelfy, i saw the tank top and it is cute. maybe next time i'll dish out the money and get it. i didn't want to spend all my money that night. :P )

skilletosis - here a pic of the back of the hoodie.

10-25-2004, 04:03 PM
ooooh very nice.... I'm wanting it....

10-26-2004, 04:32 PM
ok, so i got motivated (rachel's will be coming soon, so be patient :))

click here ( to see the Skillet pics from Oct. 22. they are divided up because they did two shows back to back.

10-29-2004, 02:47 PM

10-29-2004, 05:54 PM

and thanks.

11-04-2004, 01:15 PM
Skillet was awesome in Bakersfield, can't wait until they come back. I see a lot of you at the shows in Bakersfield and Tulare. But have not had chance to say hello. Maybe next show I'll say hi!!! I hope John is feeling better. God bless.

11-04-2004, 03:42 PM
yeah, be sure to say hi. :) which show did you go to? 1st/2nd or both?

11-20-2004, 12:03 PM
the day they were in Bakerfield I was on the road to the concert in Santa Clara frome LA it took 7 hours to get there!!!!!

11-21-2004, 12:41 PM
i almost went to that one but didn't when i saw the price and that they were going to be in bakersfield. 2 shows back to back. it was awesome. and it only cost $20 to go to both shows - and i like the venue (station316).
