Tour: Skid Row to tour Australia

Multi Platinum hard rock gods SKID ROW announce their return to Australia and New Zealand. This will be the first time Aussie and Kiwi fans get to see the Skids fronted by their new powerhouse singer Z.P Theart (Ex Dragonforce), along with drummer Rob Hammersmith and original members Dave “The Snake” Sabo, Rachel Bolan and Scotti Hill.


SKID ROW started in 1986 when a group of New Jersey kids, armed with
their punk and metal attitude, and a collection of riff-heavy, high-octane
songs, set out to conquer the world, one concert at a time. This
determined and focused approach proved to be an unquestionable
success, as the group went on to clock up numerous Top Ten singles,
Gold and multi-Platinum selling albums and a Number 1 on the
Billboard album chart. In other words, the world was theirs.
They might have conquered the world several times over, but guitarist
Snake Sabo admits the success hasn’t changed him or the band, and
SKID ROW are focused on making more earth shattering music. He says:
“I will always be that 16-year- old kid in front of the mirror, pretending to

be Ace Frehley or Michael Schenker. It is still about writing a great song
with your friends, praying it connects with someone. That has never left
me. That wilfulness will always exist, and there is so much left to say!”

Now, SKID ROW is gearing up to record the final instalment of the
United World Rebellion trilogy. Recording new songs means capturing
the signature SKID ROW energy for drummer Rob Hammersmith. “That
sound and energy is what resonates with people and knocks them on
their ass! We have a lot of great ideas to work with, so we are all really excited about this new music.”

As the energy for the new album and tour is reaching fever pitch, enter
ZP Theart. “I have been a mad fan of this band since I was a teenager, and
to now be a member of SKID ROW, is beyond any sense of my imagination!”

The Fever Pitch is sure to be reached as SKID ROW unleash all that energy and hit Australia and NZ this October!
