Hellfest 2023 / Skid Row, a Stellar Performance You Wouldn’t Want to Miss

Hellfest 2023. Coming out all guns blazing, Skid Row delivered one of the tightest and meanest sets of the entire day. Kicking off with Slave To The Grind, the band tore through hit after hit from Big Guns and Monkey Business to I Remember You and 18 And Life.

Frontman Erik Grönwall fits in so well that it feels like watching an old friend on stage. He gives a special shout-out to bassist Rachel Bolan, who has made his return after missing a few dates on the tour.

They play the new song The Gangs All Here before ending with the anthemic Youth Gone Wild. A stellar performance that flew by all too quickly.
