Rock band Skillet, winner of the Rock Album of the Year and Rock Song of the Year at the 2014 Dove Awards, and special guest Colton Dixon will perform Aug. 20th.

Skillet’s diverse horde of fans – known as Panheads – have led to more than 5 million likes on the band’s Facebook page. In its latest album, “Rise,” Skillet expanded its musical palette, integrating acoustic instruments such as the accordion, mandolin and harp to its trademark slashing electric guitars, strings, churning synthesizers and pummeling drums. Its previous album, “Awake,” reached certified platinum status with track sales of nearly 4 million.

 Colton Dixon’s 2013 debut, “A Messenger,” set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act, becoming the No. 1 selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall. “A Messenger” also became the No. 22 best-selling album across all genres that same year after Dixon’s highly publicized seventh-place finish on Season 11 of “American Idol.” He received three Dove Award nominations, winning for Best Contemporary/Rock Album, and he was nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the 2014 KLOVE Fan Awards.
