It seems like Skillet doesnt like California that much, this year they made only 4 stops and almost every year it starts with the Harvest Crusade in Anaheim at the Angels Stadium and then north twards Sacramento!!!
And in Sac. they make only 2 or 3 stops!

only four times to one state? you're lucky. missery, err missouri only gets one visit, and its to the busiest part of the state the time o year theyre comin. dont know how many of you have ever heard of Silver Dollar City, but thats in Branson, which is where they're goin. Silver Dollar City is always real busy around Chistmas time. Branson's population over doubles in size during big events at silver dollar city. its crazy.

You have to remember that California is pretty far from their hometown. It's not easy traveling so far to do one or two shows and then going all the way across the states again. But I thought they came to California a lot; last year I could of sworn I saw five CA dates in a row...

theelectric3
11-21-2004, 12:38 PM
they were in cali a lot in feb. 5 shows, i think. once in june, a few in july and then in Oct. (bakersfield and great america)

the thing is, Cali is out of the way...it's not as easy to just swing by cali as it is for other mid-west states. and it's expensive out here. so when they do come, it tends to be a few shows because all the promoters out here catch them at the same time. it's cheaper to have a few Skillet shows around the same time than paying for them to fly back and forth all the time.

we are blessed to get them the times we do.

11-21-2004, 06:24 PM
yeah they come a fair amount, the only thing is that for some of us it's a far trip to see any of the shows. For the average i've had to travel 4-5 hrs to get to the venue for a show. I just wish they were more wide spread in cali, more up in the northern area. Say for instance, the bay area ;) ;D

theelectric3
11-21-2004, 06:38 PM
being in southern cali, i don't mind their cali trips. ;) doesn't mean they are all real close to me, but it seems like ya gotta be willing to drive a good distance to see any good shows.

I would love to go see skillet in missouri, but its a five hour drive, and i dont have a vehcile that would make it that far. dont get me wrong, i love my truck, but thats just to far for it. not to mention the new job i would have started less than a month before hand. and branson would be crazy that time of year with tourists and stuff. maybe if they could swing by the st louis area and do a show at the umb bank pavilion. im sure i could make it then. less than an hour drive for me.

I didn't know they still had any Christians in California! :P

j/k

Anyway, and now for a joke this thread reminded me of:

There was one last church in LA that was going to do a nativity scene one year for Christmas. Well unfortunately they couldn't do it because after scouring the entire area they realized they couldn't find 3 wise men and a virgin!

lol! oh my. yes, despite what you read in the paper/watch on t.v. there are still christians in california. believe or not, it is a conservative state for the most part. minus the san fransico and los angeles area. you drive through mid-california where all the farms and such are and you see conservative signs up everywhere.

bush only lost by 1,000,000 votes...which means the state is almost completely divided in half. not as liberal as it sounds. ;)

What bass? Skillet's? Yeah, they left because nonbelievers do not participate in the same things as believers. That's why pagans and Christians usually do not get along.

Bah! Not another Cali concert! I'd almost fly all the way down there just to smack you around! ;)

I hope you get to go, sounds like you need a good Skillet concert to quench your thirst. I'd fly down there, but I don't think $100 is enough for a round-trip magic carpet ride and tickets, ;) not to mention transport and lodging. :P

transport and lodgings are easy, just get someone to board you. or go like a bum and hitchhike. ;)

i'm excited to see them coming to Del Mar since that is a lot closer to me than Monterey.

yeah, they did. their merch was indoors and the security was trying to kick people out and once you were out they wouldn't let you re-enter. they even kicked the band out after signing for a little... it was strict. but they did sign stuff.

i do agree that it was a good show, and the crowd was great. :D downside: it was only 30 min. long. i mean, with a stage that big, you have play at least, say, an hour long set. :)

how so? i thought it was great that they each had a lot of room to rock out. :) maybe a bit too much, but better than being cramped (or nearly breaking the stage like at the last show i saw them at).

I'm not entirely sure, but the band kept talking about how horrible it was. Pretty funny. :) First off, the "stage" was made of ice for the Snoopy show that Knotts puts on. Only a few planks of wood and bunched up carpet separated them from the icy cold surface that was underneath. It was freezing up there. Plus, they had to make sure they didn't trip over the wrinkled carpet. We called it, "Skillet on ice" ;)

Only a 30 minute set. I think I would have cried. I mean for me to go I would have had to go from Victorville to Long Beach (to drop off the kids and pick up my neice). Then from Long Beach to Anaheim to see the show. Then back to Long Beach to spend the night, then all the way back home to Victorville. It just would not have been worth it.

theelectric3
01-20-2006, 10:22 PM
yeah, it wouldn't have been. especially since they only played one set (while other bands played several times) and they were schedualed to play at 12:30am but due to delays, they didn't go on until later. the show was done around 1:15am or so. security gave the band 10min. to sign merch (and within this time people were buying merch) and then they kicked everyone out because they wanted to go home (which is understandable for them). so it wouldn't have been worth all the hassel for you. better to wait for a normal skillet show. :)

though i will say it was nice to have korey back.

viciousvelvet
01-24-2006, 06:01 PM
It was a rocking show though, without a doubt. Even though the band was exhausted, they rocked as hard as they could. They even made it a point to put on a good show because they found out that panheads were meeting together specifically at this concert. John was a bit frustrated with their set time. I thought it was awesome that they tried to play longer than the 30 minutes alloted to them. They went through a lot of hassle just for this one show. I think it was worth it.

01-31-2006, 02:45 PM
hmmm... gotta see how long of a drive Roseville would be for me. it looks like it'll be at a church... so maybe a normal set (normal in comparison to a theme park set). oh wait, it's weds. nevermind.

i see they are going to be SWC Del Mar on May 27th at 4pm. even though it's a fesitval, maybe i'll aim for that... seeing as Del Mar is closer then Monterey and i like the Del Mar grounds better.
