Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM is set to bring an electrifying presence to SKID ROW’s stage this spring, promising performances so intense that “there will be blood left on the stage.” The seasoned vocalist, who has led HALESTORM for over 25 years, steps in for a limited four-show engagement with SKID ROW, following the departure of their recent frontman, Erik Grönwall, who left to focus on his health.

On March 29, Lzzy excitedly announced her upcoming stint with SKID ROW on social media, reflecting on her lifelong connection with the band’s music. From her teenage years in Pennsylvania, SKID ROW’s blend of ’80s anthems and ’90s edge was a significant influence on her musical development. Now, she looks forward to completing a personal full circle as she joins SKID ROW on stage, not just as a temporary frontwoman but as part of a musical family that has supported her through the years.

Lzzy’s announcement was met with enthusiasm from SKID ROW members, with bassist Rachel Bolan and guitarist Scotti Hill expressing their excitement for the collaboration.

The scheduled performances with Lzzy Hale include:
– May 17 at Walker’s Bluff Casino Resort in Carterville, IL
– May 18 at Riverside Casino & Golf Resort in Riverside, IA
– May 31 at Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, NV
– June 1 at Hard Rock Live Sacramento in Wheatland, CA

HALESTORM has previously paid tribute to SKID ROW by covering “Slave To The Grind” on their 2011 EP “ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP,” demonstrating the band’s deep-rooted admiration.

Erik Grönwall’s departure was due to the challenges posed by his recovery from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which impacted his ability to tour. SKID ROW expressed their gratitude for the time spent with Grönwall and teased the release of a live album capturing this era of the band.

Grönwall has contributed significantly to SKID ROW’s legacy, including the release of the single “The Gang’s All Here” from their latest album. His tenure with the band was marked by memorable performances, including their debut show with him in Las Vegas, opening for SCORPIONS.

As Lzzy Hale prepares to join SKID ROW for these special shows, fans can anticipate a fusion of energy, passion, and rock ‘n’ roll spirit that will surely leave a lasting impression.
