with Skillet, Jamie Grace, Peter Furler, We As Human
Tonight was an extra special night for us. We shifted gears from The Roadshow and began the Third Day / Skillet Tour. We've had fun with Skillet, Jamie Grace, and We As Human for the last few weeks. This weekend we'll have Jamie Grace and Peter Furler out on the tour as well.
We kicked the day off with some travel. It really wasn't too bad as our flight was a little later in the day than usual. We flew into Detroit then drove the short trek to Toledo. We missed our exit, but the upshot is that we got to drive across the beautiful Veterans' Glass City Skyway.
After a quick soundcheck, we got ready and did a meet and greet. I can tell this will be a fun part of this tour. It's us and Skillet side by side taking pictures. There's plenty of opportunities for joking and tomfoolery.
The show tonight was incredible. We're doing a slightly longer set than we did on The Roadshow, and are including the Blessed Assurance / Cry Out to Jesus moment that we were doing back in the fall. We also don't feel quite so rushed in between every song, which is nice. The main new addition to the set is doing I Am Free with Peter Furler as a transition between our set and his. He is a great frontman with loads of energy. It is going to be fun playing this song every night!
Well, I wish we could've spent a little more time in Toledo. That being said, it was brutally cold there tonight. In fact, as I type this the temps are in the single digits and dropping. I think I'll save my sightseeing for next time :)
Thanks for a great first night of the tour!
