Skid Row and Ugly Kid Joe are combing their luscious locks and dusting off their denim in preparation for a co-headline tour to Australia in April 2014. Having successfully completed a run of shows together in Europe and the UK, these legends of hard American rock are sure to provide ample bang for your buck.
Lead by founding members Rachel Bolan, Snake Sabo and Scotti Hill, Skid Row now includes powerhouse vocalist & 14-year veteran of the band Johnny Solinger plus new drummer Rob Hammersmith. Their set list includes the best from their catalogue of gold and platinum selling albums including Sebastian Bach hits plus they will showcase tracks from their new mini-album (that’s a thing now) United World Rebellion Chapter 1.
Ugly Kid Joe split in 1997 after releasing three well-received albums but the Joes’ Whitfield Crane, Klaus Eichstadt and Cordell Crockett along with Snot/Sevendust guitarist Sonny Mayo and Zac Morris are returning to Oz on their first tour in two decades. Stairway To Hell features six brand new songs along with three acoustic versions of blasts from the past.
Opening the shows are Melbourne’s Dead City Ruins who are also serving as the support for the European tour. Tickets are on sale 11th December.
