New Jersey hard rock band Skid Row played the Prince Bandroom in Melbourne, Australia on Friday 19 October 2018. Formed in 1986, they achieved commercial success with their first two albums Skid Row (1989) and Slave to the Grind (1991) that were both certified multi-platinum, while the latter reached number one on America’s Billboard 200.
The band had sold 20 million albums worldwide by the end of 1996 – the year they split with their wild singer Sebastian Bach. The band still includes Dave “The Snake” Sabo on guitar, Rachel Bolan on bass, and Scotti Hill on guitar, with Rob Hammersmith (Rockets to Ruin) now on drums, and new lead singer ZP Theart (Dragonforce). Skid Row is preparing to record the final instalment of their United World Rebellion trilogy.
