No Nashville Pussy Tonight

Nashville Pussy was also scheduled to play this show but they were held up at the border.

At 60 bucks a pop (that's Canadian!), it was an expensive show and by the only half full venue, it was clear that not many wanted to shell out that much dough for a Baz-less Skid Row but those that did were in for a treat.

Kings X was up first.

Doug (Pinnick) made the point that 60 bucks was a lot to pay but would make it worth while. They played a killer set which included Alone, If, Dogman, Over My Head, Black Flag, and Looking For Love.

After their set, the band hung out with fans at their merch table before Skid Row came on and talked to fans, took pictures, and signed autographs.

Skid Row was up next.

Personally, I think people need to be more open minded when it comes to replacing a singer because like Alice In Chains, a new singer does have very big shoes to fill but if you give them a chance you will see that they are great on their own right. You don't want to miss out on a great show because you miss the old guy too much.

Their new singer, who they have now had for over five years and two albums so perhaps hardly new now, Johnny Solinger sang great and had great stage presence.

Scott Hill was full of energy, throwing guitar picks at fans and slapping high fives.

Rachel (Bolan) was full of some mean base lines and of course, Dave "The Snake" Sabo was on the top of his game and played some mean solos. They had a new drummer, Dave Gara and he fit the part of rock drummer perfectly.

The set list was jam packed with new and old Skid Row tunes as well as a Ramones cover.

Their Set list was:

  • Thick Is The Skin
  • Piece Of Me
  • Sweet Little Sister
  • New Generation
  • 18 And Life
  • Monkey Business
  • Another Dick
  • Big Guns
  • Psycho Therapy
  • I Remember You
  • Disease
  • Slave To The Grind
  • Beat Yourself Blind
  • Strength
  • Youth Gone Wild
Although a pricey show, both bands played great and were very interactive with the audience. A great time and I would highly recommend the new Skid Row to anyone that is willing to give Johnny Solinger a chance.
