REVIEW BY: Debby Rao
Skid Row returned to New England to play an intimate club concert at Liquid in Leominster, MA. Skid Row, who have just wrapped up a summer tour opening for Poison, rocked the house down. The band played songs from their new album, Thickskin, plus all of their hits songs, including a cool rendition of “I Remember You.”
The band hit the stage a little after midnight. They played over an hour of blistering rock and roll. They opened the show with “Slave to the Grind,” and also played “Riot Act” and “Get the F Out,” from that album.
Skid Row also played some new songs called “New Generation,” “Lamb,” and “Thick is the Skin” from their new album called Thickskin. The songs were hard and heavy with haunting melodies and guitar riffs.
Skid row has a new generation of fans. There were about 250 fans in the audience, most of them wearing Skid row t-shirts. The audience was very into the show, singing along to “I Remember You” and “18 and Life.”
New singer Johnny Solinger says they are going to Europe to open for Def Leppard November 3rd through the 12th. They had a month to kill, so they decided to do a few club shows to show appreciation to all the Skid row fans out there. Johnny says they have played alot of shows in the Northeast this year and will never forget the Station Nightclub fire. The band lost Derek and Jeff, who were fans of the band in that fire. He dedicated “I Remember You” to them.
Snake Sabo led the band into an awesome guitar solo on “Monkey Business.” He also played acoustic guitar on “I Remember You.” Rachel Bolan sang “Psychotherapy.”
They ended the show with “Youth Gone Wild.” Their show was infused with energy. For future tour plans check out www.skidrow.com.
