Hot off the heels of dropping their new single “The Gang’s All Here”, Skid Row performed their first gig with new vocalist Erik Gronwall this weekend. Rockers are currently slated as an opening for Scorpions Sin City Nights Residence in Las Vegas.
The show took place Saturday, March 26 at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Sin City, and served as the opening night for the residency, which will run through mid-April. Queensryche was originally slated to take on Scorpions, but Skid Row was announced as her replacement last November.
The Skid Row setlist [via Setlist.fm] from the show featured nine songs, including hits such as “18 and Life”, “Slave to the Grind”, “Youth Gone Wild”, “I Remember You”, as well as their new single “The Gang’s All Here”.
