Sebastian Bach, former SKID ROW singer, will perform the entire album “Skid Row” at select shows in 2024 to celebrate the band’s 35th anniversary.

So far, three dates have been announced:

April 27 in Curitiba, Brazil; April 30 in Montevideo, Uruguay; and May 4 in Mexico City.

Bach says, “2024 marks the 35th anniversary of the first record ‘Skid Row,’ and on SELECT dates in 2024, we will play the record in its entirety! We won’t do this at every show.”

Bach commemorated the 30th anniversary of SKID ROW’s debut with a U.S. tour. There he performed the entire album as well as other songs from his catalogue.

SKID ROW’s self-titled album, released in the winter of 1989, is one of heavy rock’s most successful debut albums. The album reached the top ten on Billboard and selling millions of copies worldwide. The record catapulted the band from a local New Jersey quintet to a global phenomenon, with its rebellious attitude and jaw-dropping talent setting the standard and tone for rock music in the late 1980s and early 1990s. SKID ROW’s singles “18 And Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You” are among the decade’s most well-known rock anthems, still receiving frequent airplay on radio stations across the nation. The group achieved commercial success again with its second album, “Slave To The Grind” (1991), which was certified multi-platinum and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Bach led SKID ROW until 1996, when he was fired. Instead of giving up, the remaining members went on hiatus and briefly played in the band OZONE MONDAY. In 1999, SKID ROW reformed and, after some lineup changes over the years, featured bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarists Dave “Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Hammersmith, and singer Johnny Solinger. SKID ROW fired Solinger over the phone in April 2015, just hours before announcing ex-TNT vocalist Tony Harnell as his replacement. Eight months later, the band replaced Harnell with South African-born, British-based singer ZP Theart. He had previously fronted DRAGONFORCE, TANK, and I AM I. Theart was fired from SKID ROW in February 2022 and replaced by Erik Grönwall. Gronwall was a former member of the Swedish hard rock band H.E.A.T.

Bach completed a tour of the United States in 2021, commemorating the 30th anniversary of “Slave To The Grind”.

Two and a half years ago, Bach told Florida’s 98.7 The Gater radio station that “there’s no reason” for the classic SKID ROW to break up. “When those guys try to say, ‘He’s difficult to work with,’ let me just say this once more. “We have not been in the same room together since 1996,” he said. “Shut up about your assumption that you know what I’m like. You have no idea what I am like.

And the ‘Gilmore Girls’ think I’m fine to work with. Broadway and the ‘Trailer Park Boys’ think I’m okay to work with. GUNS N’ ROSES think I’m really cool. “We are not getting any younger.”

Sebastian Bach went on to say that SKID ROW “should” reunite “for the fans”. And we’re running out of bands that can play in sheds,” he explained. “The fact that we’re all still alive and in our 50s. Some closer to 60 than others, but we’re not together seems selfish to me.

“I can play with anyone. I play with everyone [laughs]—except them.”
