Erik Grönwall, the former frontman of Skid Row, made a notable appearance with the band Europe on May 23 at Gröna Lund in Stockholm, Sweden. They energized the crowd with a powerful performance of Europe’s classic hit ‘Cherokee.’ Fans enthusiastically documented and shared the event across social media platforms.

This performance marked two months since Grönwall’s departure from Skid Row.

Grönwall shared his gratitude on social media, posting photos from the event and writing:

“Thank you, Europe, for having me. It was an honor sharing the stage with you for a few seconds! And what an incredible show you guys did on your home turf.”

Grönwall has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia since March 2021. In March of this year, he decided to leave Skid Row, citing the incompatibility of touring with his health and recovery needs. He opted for a lifestyle more conducive to his well-being and family life.

During his absence, Skid Row’s longtime friend Lzzy Hale stepped in as lead vocalist for two recent performances.

The members of Skid Row expressed pride in their collaboration with Erik over the past few years and wished him well on his health journey. In celebration, the band announced the release of a special live album, stating:

“To celebrate the last two years, the band will be releasing a live album that perfectly captures this moment in the band’s 35-plus-year history, to be announced soon.”
